You can immerse yourself in a world of different cultures, landscapes, and lifestyles. The true magic of travel lies in the new experiences it holds.

sweet experience

Indulging in Spain’s sweet offerings is an experience not to be missed! From the iconic churros dipped in rich chocolate to the delicate and delicious pastries and the infamous crema Catalana, each one being a delight to the taste buds.

Our very own sweet experience takes place in the city of Girona, not far from Barcelona, where the Roca brothers have put the city in the highest gastronomical ladders. But it is the youngest of the three that has brought the sweetness to town. 

Girona can easily be reached by the high-speed train; a great gastronomical experience combined with a historical tour of this charming medieval town. 

Additionally, if you want  to enter the delirious world of Salvador Dalí, we can organise a day excursion to Figures, just north of Girona, to include the Theatre-Museum Dalí tour.
