Catalonia reveals itself gradually, from Barcelona to the Pyrenean foothills: The road traces the graceful curves of the Mediterranean shores past secret coves and calanques before turning discreetly inland. You will go from Gaudí to Dalí in the streets of beautiful Figueras. The world of art gradually gives way to mountain landscapes dotted with enchanting medieval villages. The madness of Las Ramblas seems a distant dream when facing the majestic summits of Pedraforca.

Hotel and restaurant in town. One of the impressive façades of the Neri, tucked away in the heart of the romantic Gothic district, gives onto Sant Felip Neri square, a magical place with Gothic edifices and the church where Gaudí used to come to pray every day. This hotel was created when, in the 18th century, two mansions merged – one dating from the Middle Ages. It boasts a delightful décor, blending period features with ultra-modern design. The chef creates a Mediterranean cuisine with a seasonal menu in this private, welcoming restaurant.
