Cycling Tour in Catalonia

Spain is ascendant in its reputation as one of the most innovative food destinations in the world. This should not surprise us given the rich array of its culinary influences. Greek, Roman, Goth, Muslim, and Frank (French-German) civilizations have each stood triumphant upon Spanish soil, contributing their particular flavors to Spanish culture and cuisine.

 

About the Catalonia Region

 

This tour centers on the northeastern region of Catalonia, tucked beneath the Pyrenees Mountains. We’ll explore four of its most charming towns – Girona, Vic, Cardona and Sitges – and savor the best of Catalan cuisine, an edible mosaic of mountains and sea. We’ll meet a producer of the world-famous jamon (cured ham, one of the signature foods of Spain) and winemakers of vino tinto and Cava, the Spanish answer to Champagne.
