Besalu, former seat of the counts of the same name, is a magnificent historic-artistic site, renowned for its beauty and the 11th century Roman bridge that once was necessary to adjoin this small village to land. The strategic situation between the Rivers Fluvia and Capellades, on the boundary of three counties, granted Besalu an important role in the history of Catalonia. You will visit the ruins of the Jewish quarter of Besalu, dating back to the 9th century, and the mikvah or Jewish ritual bathhouse, dating from the 12th century, which is the only one of its kind discovered in the Iberian Peninsula and one of the few known in Europe.
The local public gardens await you where villagers grow herbs for their well-known and traditional homemade wine, ratafia. The different families of Besalu have variations of this sweet wine, and use their own secret combination of aromatic herbs to flavor this digestive liquor.
After some local food tastings, you will now leave to continue your private visit and this time to the romantic city of Girona.
Enchanted by stretches of cobblestone streets, the very famous old Jewish Quarter and the Centre Bonastruc ca Porta, an institute of Jewish learning built around the old Synagogue on Carrer de la Forca, the main artery of the medieval quarter which has remained amazingly intact over the centuries. Recently, much of the Call has been restored under the supervision of the Centre also home to the Museu d'Historia dels Jueus (Jewish History Museum) - which has developed a map of the maze-like streets and hosts small exhibits on Carrer de la Forca. Many of the restored buildings now house art galleries, upscale boutiques and trendy restaurants. Containing the most accurate information about medieval Jewish communities in Spain, particularly those in Catalonia, the museum's exhibits provide a picture of daily life in the quarter, Jewish traditions and the region's most influential calls. The Hebrew lapidary (tombstone) collection is considered to be one of the finest in the world. You will wind through the narrow streets and stoned walls of the old Gothic Quarter and encounter the magnificent Girona Cathedral affording a great view of the area, little shops, cafes and medieval homes that families have passed down through the generations.
Your excellent local guide will accompany you to a fantastic restaurant in Girona where you are booked for a delicious 3 course lunch with wine. First class service, innovative takes on traditional recipes and an elegant atmosphere will provide the perfect end to your visit to Girona.

As you walk through the narrow village streets of Pals, next to the city walls, towers and churches, you will feel as though you have stepped back in time. The stone archways, cobblestone streets and wrought balconies adorned with flowers create a welcoming feel in this Romanesque village.
To continue, you will visit another Medieval village, a totally unspoiled hideaway, home to ancient Iberian archaeological remains and a 9th century medieval church. Continuing your Medieval morning, you will head to another nearby village where as you stroll along its cobbled streets you will surely imagine what life was like in the Olde Worlde days - a very special village indeed.
Your "medieval journey" continues to another close (and of course medieval!) village, where you are booked for a delicious lunch of local Catalan country fare with Emporda wine, at an authentic stone farmhouse that has been converted into a delightful restaurant. Take your time over lunch, it is a casual affair in the medieval villages!
After such a delicious lunch your chauffeur will take you to the coast and to a lighthouse looking over the Mediterranean where you will surely enjoy a coffee while taking in the impressive views before you. Then heading down the hill you will arrive to the picturesque chic Costa Brava villages.
Picture-postcard villages that offer breathtaking views of the azul blue Mediterranean; beachfront cafes and inviting walkways. There are kilometers of clifftop paths to appreciate why Costa Brava translates as Wild Coast. With free time here you can stroll along the scenic seaside, discovering hidden coves and breathe in the fresh air whilst you gaze far out to sea, the sun sparkling on the small crested waves. While in this area you may like to visit the romantic clifftop Botanical Garden, a delight to wander around with it's many species and magnificent setting.
After a truly interesting exploration day your chauffeur will return you to your country retreat where you will surely enjoy a relax in the grounds before maybe dining at the hotel restaurant this evening.

The historical symbol and oldest monument is the Castell de Montjuic (Castle), from where there are beautiful views of the city.
A Jewish cemetery had been on the Montjuic mountain for at least a millennium and more than 500 gravestones have been found. Some of the early tombstones have been relocated to the Castell de Montjuic, a 17th-century fortification that is now a military museum. In 1995, a Holocaust Memorial was erected in the cemetery on a plot donated by the city. The memorial is composed of simple stone monuments and pedestals with the names of all the concentration camps that were liberated. You will be able to see the site of the medieval Jewish cemetery in Montjuic and the Holocaust memorial before being transferred to your excellent 4* Barcelona Hotel.
Your Barcelona hotel is ideally located in the Gothic Quarter, nearby to all major sights, but at the same time on the seafront. The rooftop terrace bar and pool provide an astonishing view of the city as well as the port, and your lovely room looks out onto the harbour. Formerly, your hotel was the residence of a wealthy Duke in the city and is deep-seated in history.
After time to settle in, your Officially Licensed Guide will meet you at your hotel and together you will head to discover some more sights and delights of the city, starting with the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona.
The Gothic Quarter is considered the heart of Barcelona and home to an abundance of tucked away gourmet cafes and shops. You will make a visit to La Boqueria, Spain's most important, and world-famous, marketplace. It offers the absolute freshest and most diverse selection of produce. At the market, you will visit the famous bar which in-the-know celebrities of Barcelona frequent. Here you will be able to try the best aperitifs, perhaps a reserve cava (Spanish champagne) and sample some of the finest products of the marketplace!
You will visit the old Jewish areas of Barcelona; A Jewish community settled in the Barri Gotic from the 2nd century onwards in the area now called El Call close to Placa St. Jaume and Calle Ferran. A medieval synagogue, discovered beneath a 17th century building at the corner of Sant Domenec and Marlet, has been restored and opened to the public. Our guide is a real specialist in this field and will be ready to answer all your questions.
Your journey will continue with a visit to the famous Sant Jaume Square and Barcelona Cathedral, as well as Santa Maria del Mar Church, which is a beautiful and important 14th-century church and is considered the finest and most complete example of Catalan Gothic architecture anywhere. This church figures in the famous book by Ildefonso Falcones, Cathedral of the Sea and our guide can also show you other sites featured in this novel, should you be interested.
Together you will beat the queues as you then head to enjoy your private guided visit to the incredible La Sagrada Familia, a work on a grand scale which began in 1882. At the end of 1883 Gaudi, the city's most internationally renowned and emblematic architect, was commissioned to carry on the works, a task which he did not abandon until his death in 1926. Since then different architects have continued the work after his original idea, but it remains unfinished.
Your private tour will be rounded off with an excellent Gourmet Spanish tapas tasting dinner, of course, with wine. In the heart of the Born district, and at the hands of one of the most acclaimed chefs in Barcelona, you will enjoy a great selection of modern sophisticated Spanish tapas in an elegant and fashionable setting.
Your guide will leave you at the finale of your tour when you are settled safely into this amazing delicatessen, but not before giving you many personalized tips and suggestions for further sightseeing in Barcelona.
OPTIONAL Private Guided Tour of Barcelona Gaudi Route, Overnight in Luxury 4* Hotel in Barcelona
This morning, following breakfast, you have a free day to explore more of Barcelona, and at your own pace.
You may like to discover more of Antoni Gaudi's influence on the city of Barcelona and start with a visit to Parc GÃ¼ell which is located in uptown Barcelona. Throughout Gaudi's work, you will see much of his architectural inspiration came from his experiences in nature.
One of the most beautiful icons of the city of Barcelona, â€‹â€‹Park GÃ¼ell, a work by Antoni Gaudi carried our between 1900 and 1914, has wonderful views of the city where you can enjoy a peaceful stroll surrounded by nature and modernist works.
Continuing on your Gaudi route, you can then head to the Passeig de Gracia to see other famous works of Gaudi, including his famous Casa Batllo and La Pedrera. Gaudi's Pedrera built between 1906 and 1910 for the Mila family. This is one of the main Gaudi residential buildings and one of the most imaginative houses of the history of the architecture, this building is more a sculpture than a building.

Please advise and we will include, in your quotation all entrances and a fantastic Officially Licensed Private Guided for you.

Free day in Barcelona, Overnight in Luxury 4* Hotel in Barcelona
Today you are free to do as you please in Barcelona and you may like to return to the Montjuic Mountain (Jewish mountain), amble around the Gothic Quarter or visit one of the museums of the city.
In Barcelona there are many Museums but the Picasso Museum is probably considered "the" museum to visit in Barcelona for the artist and for the building which is five medieval palaces in the Gothic Quarter linked together to make a museum. Concerning Pablo Ruiz Picasso the museum is indispensable for understanding his formative years and the genius of the young artist is revealed through the more than 3,500 works that make up the permanent collection.
Also in Barcelona:
The Catalan National Art Museum (MNAC) - housed in the magnificent palace overlooking the fountains of Montjuic containing mostly Catalan works of Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance arts from 11th to 18th century. The MNAC embraces all the arts (sculpture, painting, objets d'art, drawing, engraving, posters, photography and coinage) and has the task of explaining the general history of Catalan art from the Romanesque period to the mid-twentieth century. With regard to the Renaissance and Baroque collections, the works included lead to a more international discourse, with the work of great painters, such as El Greco, Zurbarin, Velazquez, Cranach, Rubens...
The Joan Miro Foundation - to discover the work of Miro who throughout his life took a particular interest in the diversity of materials, forms and colors. It led him to explore and experiment with different art forms such as painting, sculpture, printing techniques, ceramics, theatre and tapestry.
We will be delighted to make reservations this evening for a delightful dinner, maybe a Michelin star?, as this is your last night in Barcelona.
Private Chauffeured Transfer to Barcelona Train Station, High Speed Train tickets to Seville, Overnight in a 4* Traditional Andalusian House Hotel in Seville
After a very early breakfast at your hotel, you will be ready for the journey to another part of your tour, in Seville.
You will be collected at your hotel by your private Chauffeur who will drive you to Barcelona Sants Station, where you will take a fast and comfortable train to Seville. Your train seats are reserved on the high speed train in the first class (preferente) carriage.
On arrival in Seville, you will take a taxi to your hotel, situated in a delightful area, in the picturesque and authentic Barrio Santa Cruz, this luxurious, 19th-Century building is constructed around a lovely traditional Andalusian patio, with a rooftop terrace boasting striking views of the Giralda.
You may wish to have a relaxed lunch, perhaps something typically Andalusian (much of the cuisine in Seville is influenced by the Moors), after your long journey before having a wander in the Barrio Santacruz, which is the old Jewish quarter. It is a real joy to amble around its beautiful squares and narrow streets, which form a labyrinth, where it is easy to get lost, but this is part of its charm, because when one is lost, one may discover a convent or a palace or an hotel. The air in the barrio is perfumed by jasmine flowers and the orange trees that one finds there. Many of the palaces have wrought iron gates that allow one to peep into their beautiful patios. The area abounds in small stores and artisan shops, as well as good art galleries.
For tonight, we have several suggestions for a delightful dinner in the Barrio Santa Cruz.
Private Guided Tour of Seville to include La Giralda and Seville Cathedral, Evening Flamenco Show, Overnight in a 4* Traditional Andalusian House Hotel in Seville
This morning, after breakfast, your Officially Licensed Seville guide will be waiting for you in the hotel reception and you will depart for a sightseeing tour of the Barrio Santa Cruz, which is the old Jewish quarter.
Once Saint King Ferdinand III conquered the city in 1248, one of the largest Jewish communities in Spain came to Seville, second only to that of Toledo. After the expulsion of the Jews in 1483, the Jewish Quarter that extended over what today is Barrio Santa Cruz and San Bartolome went into decline. Relive the past as your guide recounts bygone days and you discover the history of Susanna Ben Suzon and visit the original wall and the synagogue-church of Santa Maria la Blanca. Seville was once the home to the Ritva and Abravanel families among others.
Your guide will lead you through the streets of Barrio Santa Cruz and continue through historic Seville, including Seville Cathedral, the oldest and most spectacular Gothic cathedral in the world and La Giralda tower which provides spectacular views of the city.
You will have worked up an appetite on this fascinating tour so your guide will lead you now to a tantalizingly delicious tapas lunch. Seville boasts more than 4,000 tapas bars - roughly 1 for every 200 locals so you know they know what they're talking about! Tapasâ€™ hopping is part of Andalusian life and as you stop into some of the many foodie hot-spots you can try a variety of dishes that come freshly out of the kitchen. Plate after plate of hot and cold food appears on the bar to tempt your palate, so maybe try cold roasted pepper salad or anchovies in vinegar, a hot dish of meatballs in sauce or a slice of Potato Omelette..... the choice is yours. Of course, as is customary, you will accompany your mouth watering bites with a glass of dry Spanish Sherry and tastings of the local Finos.
In the evening, get ready for a wonderful Flamenco Show. And, what better place than at a famed Flamenco House where you will be able to enjoy the swirling skirts and tapping heels of the dancers which will both amaze and thrill. The show is close to your hotel and your guide, this morning, will have shown you where the Flamenco Show is located. You may wish to dine before or after the show, the choice is yours.
High speed train to Cordoba, Private Guided Tour of Cordoba & Mezquita, Overnight in a 4* Traditional Andalusian House Hotel in Seville
This morning you will take a taxi to Seville Railway Station and take a very comfortable high speed train to Cordoba, the former home of many Jewish scholars and poets. Awaiting you at Cordoba station will be our guide, who will take you on a complete tour of everything that Cordoba has to delight. Jews formed a part of Cordoba's cultural mix from as early as the 2nd Century until their expulsion from Spain in 1492.
Once the biggest city in all of Europe, Cordoba thrived and expanded with its unique blend of cultures. These are beautifully expressed with a visit to Mezquita, the most significant Muslim architectural achievement in the Western world. This 8th century structure was first a church, then a mosque, and today has a cathedral oddly placed in its center. Walk the street leading up to the Juderia, with its whitewashed houses and colorful courtyards and shops. Though not Jewish in its current expression, a few signs hint of the Golden Age of Jewish life. Note, for example, the statue of the great court doctor and Torah sage, Maimonides (Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon) and the tiny, gem-like Synagogue, (the one in which Maimonedes prayed) which is one of only three remaining synagogues in Spain from before the Expulsion of 1492. The Jewish Quarter is the best-known part of Cordoba's historic center, which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1984 and is one of the largest in Europe.
As you wander down picturesque and evocative streets in the restored heart of Cordoba - one of the largest medieval quarters in Europe - it is not difficult to imagine the days when Cordoba was one of the most important cities in Europe. Cordoba's large Juderia has been recently restored and is now filled with charming shops and cafes.
Your guide will then take you to some local taverns to savour some typical Cordobese tapas. A Tavern in Cordoba used to be a place where the local people could go to drink wine and every tavern had an interior courtyard with a well, that was not only for decoration but also to refresh the drinks. Nowadays Cordoban taverns are designed as lively, yet less frenetic, venues to taste tapas. You will have the chance to sample specialties such as Flamenquin (battered pork or ham), Salmorejo (cold tomato soup thickened with breadcrumbs), Rabo de Toro (Bull's tail) and for dessert the typical Pastel Cordobes - a pastry filled with sweet pumpkin.
Following your wonderful day in Cordoba, you will take a train back to Seville and will have the evening to relax and perhaps have dinner in a local restaurant - we have many suggestions.
High Speed Train to Madrid, Private Guided tour of Madrid to include El Prado Museum and Old Madrid, Overnight in a Luxury 4* Hotel in Madrid
This morning, after breakfast you will check out of your hotel and take a taxi to the railway station where you have reservations for seats on the high speed train for Madrid.
On arrival in Madrid you will take a taxi to your 4* Hotel in the heart of Madrid. Formerly the residence of the Duke of Noblejas, the hotel has maintained its frescoes, mirrors and stained glass whilst being equipped with modern comforts. The hotel's location is perfect, next to the famous Plaza Santa Ana, in the Barrio de las Letras and within the Golden Triangle of Art, so you will not have far to walk to get to the Prado, the Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Reina Sofia.
After checking into your hotel and having time for a light lunch and rest after your journey, your local officially licensed private guide will be waiting for you for your private tour of El Prado Museum and Old Madrid. Unfortunately, there are no longer any historical Jewish sites in Madrid and the neighborhoods where Jewish quarters were located before the Expulsion in 1492 now show no evidence of their Jewish past.
You will start with a private visit to El Prado Museum, the biggest art gallery in the world. It has more than 7,600 paintings, but can exhibit only one part of its collection for lack of space. However a recent addition to the museum increased the space by 50%, so more paintings will be on display. Prado means meadow, and the museum got the name of Prado because there was an open meadow where the museum now sits.
Your private tour of Madrid will then take you to the Plaza Oriente to see and learn about the Royal Palace - Palacio Real or Palacio Oriente - and the Cathedral. You will then walk through the Old town to the Plaza de la Villa, with the town hall, and on to Mercado de San Miguel, the hottest gastronomic spot in Madrid where its bars and restaurants make it the place to meet in Old Madrid. You will also visit the Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol and finalize your tour in Santa Ana Square (near your hotel).
On your journey you will enjoy some fantastic bites to eat, and a beverage or two, as you sample the best variety of wine and tapas the city has on offer! By the end of your private guided tour you will have discovered the key to the Madrid gastronomy (some of it is for the fearless only!) and heard many anecdotes of 17th century Madrid, along whose streets you will stroll.
High speed return train tickets for a day in Toledo, Private Guided Tour of Toledo to include the Cathedral, Synagogue of Santa Maria La Blanca and Church of Santo Tome, Overnight in a Luxury 4* Hotel in Madrid
This morning, after breakfast, you are off to Toledo for the day. You have high speed train tickets from Madrid to Toledo, and return.
Your local officially licensed guide will be waiting for you at the train station when you arrive at Toledo and will lead you on a visit to the Cathedral, which is one of the most outstanding buildings in the city and is considered to be one of the high points of Gothic art. The construction of this monumental building, with a basilica floor plan and five naves, commenced in 1226, although it was not finished until the 15th century. On its main facade the outstanding feature is the doorway, made up of three doors: Infierno (Hell), Perdon (Forgiveness) and Juicio (Judgement). The exterior is topped by the two cathedral towers, one of them in flamboyant Gothic style and the other in Gothic-Renaissance.
Following on your guide will lead you to the Synagogue of Santa Maria La Blanca. Remains of the Jewish community are still preserved in the city in the synagogues of Santa Maria la Blanca and El Transito. The former, built possibly in the 12th century, is also a good example of Toledo's Mudejar art. History tells that permission to build it was granted when the King was in love with a Jewish woman however it was later converted into a church. It has five naves with decreasing heights as well as the characteristic geometrical and botanical decoration and horseshoe arches.
Meanwhile, in the synagogue of El Transito, built in 1357, you can admire one of the best Mudejar coffered ceilings of all those preserved in Toledo, along with walls richly decorated with geometrical and botanical designs and Hebrew inscriptions. Nowadays, this Jewish place of worship houses the Sephardic Museum, in which an interesting collection of pieces of art and various objects used in Jewish ceremonies are exhibited, detailing medieval Jewish life in Toledo.
Your fantastic visit to Toledo, will terminate with a visit to the church of Santo Tome, famous for housing El Greco's famous picture entitled El entierro del Conde Orgaz (The burial of Count Orgaz). You will then have free time to enjoy Toledo and have lunch, for which we have several suggestions, prior to returning to Madrid.
Back in Madrid, the rest of the evening is free to do as you wish - relax, have a light dinner, wander around Madrid, the choice is yours. We have many suggestions for great restaurants.
Free day in Madrid, Overnight in a Luxury 4* Hotel in Madrid
Following breakfast this morning you are as free as you please in Madrid and will have received many personalized suggestions from your guide.
You may like to visit to the Reina Sofia Museum. The building that the museum now occupies started out as the San Jose Hospital, a building designed in the 18th century by the architects Jose de Hermosilla and Francisco Sabatini. The building was remodeled in 1981 and in 1992 the Museo Reina Sofia was inaugurated by the King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia. In 1990 the collection of modern Spanish art from the Museo Espanyol de Arte Contemporaneo was transferred to the Reina Sofia. After that Picasso's Guernica was taken from the Cason del Buen Retiro, a part of the Prado Museum, and placed in the Reina Sofia. The museum specializes in Spanish contemporary art, art from the 20th century. The most famous Spanish artists of this time period are found in this museum and if one is a modern art lover then the Reina Sofia is the museum one should see. The main attraction of the museum is Picasso's Guernica, which generates powerful emotions and shows the horrors of war.
You may wish to take a walk in El Retiro Park which is located in the center of Madrid and is quite big, occupying a space of 12 hectares. One of the features of the park is the large artificial lake (El Estanque del Retiro) that is located by the monument to Alfonso XII. This park is gorgeous and is a very enjoyable place to visit and see beautiful gardens and enjoy nature.
Maybe you would like to return to the West, as you will have seen previously it is lovely area to stroll around with the Palacio Real, Cathedral, Plaza de Espana and the Teatro Real. You will not have had time on the guided tour to enter the Palacio Real but today you could visit its very interesting interior. The palace is used by the King for ceremonial purposes only, he actually lives in the Palacio de la Zarzuela on the outskirts of the city.
After your busy day you will no doubt be delighted to put your feet up for a while, prior to your final evening in Madrid, which is free for you to spend how you wish, perhaps doing some retail therapy at the boutique shops found in the Chueca neighborhood.
OPTIONAL: You may care to have the privilege to dine at what is claimed to be the oldest restaurant in the world, dating back to 1725, serving traditional Spanish cuisine. Or, there are many Michelin stars shining in Madrid and you may like to enjoy a special farewell dinner this evening. We will be delighted to make reservations for you.
