The most beautiful villages in the world

Conquer the Costa Brava from a completely different perspective. A journey into the Middle Ages. Although all the places visited were breathtaking, Pals was the absolute highlight. This is the most beautiful village I have ever been to. A very nice tour that shows us that Barcelona and its surroundings are not just sun and beach. It was a recommendation of the team, I can only thank them very much.

Die schönsten Dörfer der Welt

Die Costa Brava aus eine ganz anderen Sicht erobern. Eine Reise in den Mittelalter. Auch wenn alle besuchte Orte atemberaubend waren, war Pals das absolute Highlight. Das ist das schönste Dorf, wo ich je gewesen bin. Eine sehr schöne Tour die uns zeigt, dass Barcelona und Umgebung nicht nur Sonne und Strand ist. Es war eine Empfehlung des Teams, ich kann mich darüber nur sehr herzlich bedanken.
