From here we will enjoy unique views: the beautiful mediterranean sea, breathtaking cliffs hanging over the sea and small hidden coves, where we will have free time to swim in its transparent waters sunbathe and enjoy its peace. Fragances of pine trees, rosemary and thyme will follow us along the way.

After lunch we will have the chance to visit Tossa de Mar, an ancient fishermen’s village with an important historical background. We will walk around the emblematic Vila Vella or old town, the sole remaining fortified medieval town on the catalan coast dating from 13th century, which remains in great state of conservation. Behind the impressive city walls and defensive towers we will find a labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys surrounded by beautiful white houses that gives the town a true mediterranean atmosphere..
Before coming back to Barcelona we will go to Sant Joan castle from where we will have the chance to enjoy a panoramic view of Blanes bay.
Fantastic hike and tour of old city with Ramon. Having grown up in the region, and an experienced guide, he is informative, friendly and a good conversationalist. My daughter and I enjoyed the lovely views on the hike and traipsing around the walled city. Having studied in England, Ramon is extraordinarily proficient in English. We also enjoyed hearing about his own extensive travels through Africa, South America and Norway. 10/10 recommend!
“Amazing! Spectacular views!”
