1· Miravet

Miravet, is living proof of the historical importance of Barcelona and the surrounding area.

What do we like most about Miravet?

What clearly stands out is the Templar castle. To enjoy the sunset there is always an obligatory stop, as it is also one of the highest points in the town. There you can get a great view of the River Ebro in its maximum splendour.

2· Cadaqués

This is one of favourite places to visit both for visitors and also for Barceloneses. Its surroundings maintain an appearance of the 19th century.

It is a town very easy to get too, taking around two hours and a half if you depart from Barcelona in car at a calm pace.

A part from its spectacular beauty and environment, in Cadaqués you can also find the Museum that is the House of Salvador Dali. Surely you want to visit now?

3· Montgarri

In the Lleidan Pyrenees, in one of the furtherst north points of Catalonia, one can find the village of Montgarri. The climate is characterised by true cold, with an annual average of 5 degrees.

We present you a ghost town, where the houses, also known as Bordas, have been uninhabited since the 1960s. We can particularly recommend theSanctuary of Our Lady of Montgarri, that represents the most touristic attraction of the area.

4· Siurana

Located in the province of Tarragona and also known as Ciurana of Tarragona. It is located on a rocky island of great dimensions.

A demonstration of its history is the Romanic church, located in one of the highest points of the town. This is where we recommend that you stop for the time necessary to enjoy to the maximum the panoramic views of the valley in which you find yourself.

If you have decided to visit this place, at WeBarcelona we like to recommend to our clients that they visit the Siurana Reservoir. In only 20 minutes in car you can be surrounded by pure nature.

5· Mura

Finally, but no less importantly, we present you Mura. An interior town that is located only an hour away from Barcelona in car. Perfect for spending a complete day at any time of the year.

In spite of its incredible natural beauty, it is not a place well known by tourists – something which makes it more attractive to a lot of people. So you can walk calmly through the stone streets and charming green countryside.
