Medieval Besalú short break plus hot air balloon ride

per person
Level: Initiation
Duration: 2 days
Availability: from 2016-05-21 to 2016-10-21

A special short break across the most medieval and Jewish parts of Besalú, plus a hot air balloon ride from Santa Pau flying over the volcanoes of La Garrotxa the following day.

We recommend you to arrive quite early in Besalú as the guided visit will be done then. A guide will be accompanying you along the streets of Besalú, inviting you to discover all the different places of the village and, specially, its medieval part. The city of Besalú is member of the Network of Spanish Jewish Quarters because of the great value of its different Jewish elements: the synagogue, the baths (Micvé) and its characteristic bridge.

This short break includes a dinner in Cúria Reial or Pont Vell restaurant, both historic and emblematic buildings of Besalú with really good views of the whole village.
You will have a double room specially booked for you in 3 Arcs Hotel, breakfast included. The following morning a hot balloon ride will be waiting for you.
This hot air balloon ride usually takes 1h30, just enough time to fly over a great part of La Garrotxa always keeping the Pyrenees as background.
After the hot air balloon ride, you will get back to the starting point of the activity, where a typical Catalan breakfast with local products of La Garrotxa will be waiting for you.

The perfect short break to discover some of the most outstanding aspects of La Garrotxa: its volcanoes and Besalú!
