The cultural richness of the cities of Vic and Girona offers art lovers a great diversity ranging from archaeological remains to the 21st century, passing through Romanesque art, Baroque or Modernism.
A signposted route through the historic centre of Vic allows you to discover almost thirty buildings, all of historical, architectural or artistic importance. The route highlights the Roman Temple from the 2nd century; the walls from the 14th century; the cathedral, where Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Neoclassical styles converge; the Plaça del Mercadal and the town hall… Once immersed in this tour, visitors can visit the city’s museums and art galleries. The Episcopal Museum of Vic is the main exponent, with one of the best collections of Romanesque and Gothic art in Europe.
Girona, on the other hand, is one of the most historically interesting cities in Catalonia. Its streets allow us to travel through more than two thousand years of history based on two fortified enclosures: the Força Vella (Old Fortress) and the medieval extension. The former corresponds to the Roman foundation, and the latter to the extension of the walls during the 14th and 15th centuries.
Girona’s appeal is rounded off by the fascinating Jewish quarter, or Call, the beautiful porticoed streets and squares, the exuberant Baroque spaces and the Noucentist buildings by Rafael Masó.
