Barcelona has a great variety of tourist attractions to offer. The city is always teeming with visitors who are mesmerized by the pulsating vibe of the city. The atmosphere is always lively and entertaining. However, if tourists are looking for a break from this routine in order to have some quiet moments of meditation, then they could always embark upon some great day trips that are full of unlimited opportunities to get the most sought after respite from the city life. Here are some of the spots that tourists could visit.
Lake Of Banyoles
Lake of Banyoles is quite large and is suitable for jogging, walking, and even swimming. Visitors could also explore the option of fishing, kayaking, or canoeing as well. Moreover, the old town of Banyoles is as charming as the lake; so, tourists could always head towards the tranquil town to get some moments of tranquillity there as well.
Sant Jeroni is easily accessible via Montserrat, which is, in turn, an hour ride from the city. Further, it takes 2 hour of hiking to reach Sant Jeroni Peak, which is at the height of 1236 metre. However, the hike is worthwhile since one gets to see amazing 360 degree of the countryside. The atmosphere is simply surreal. Moreover, the town of Montserrat is worth exploring as well, especially the choir performance by the talented boys there.
Berga is another great spot that offers welcome respite to the tourists from hectic life of the city. Moreover, one could hike up to the gorgeous Queralt Mountain from here. The hike not only offers a chance to tourists to get in some fresh air but also offers great views of green mountains and terra-cotta roofs that could be seen in the valleys.
La Fageda is a great location to visit as well, since it abounds in nature’s beauty. Tourists are invariably amazed to see unique beach forests here which grow at very low altitude. Moreover, the view of red leaves on trees is simply stunning in the fall. The best part is that there is no pollution as no cars are allowed here. So, one could explore the pristine beauty of the forests by hiking, biking, or by getting onto the horsebacks. Adventure loving people could further go beyond La Fageda in order to explore other scintillating areas in the vicinity like La Garrotxa Volcanic Zone Natural Park, and the old town of Sant Feliu de Pallerols.
Cadaques is a great scenic and fishing village located in the vicinity of Barcelona. It has the unmistakable Cap de Creus lighthouse that offers spectacular views of the ocean. Moreover, there is a dazzling array of restaurants as well that offer sumptuous food to the hungry visitors.
Costa Brava is a great spot that is characterized by hidden coves, beaches, and breathtaking coastal views. There is the 220 km well-marked trail, which is known by many names like Costa Brava Way, Camino de Ronda, and GR-92. Tourists are invariably amazed to embark upon the coastal hikes that abound in natural beauty.
