I love discover the world !

In Medieval villages bike tour, the history and gastronomy and Costa Brava are the magic ingredients for this tour. In the medieval villages route you will ride through history. Ancient towns, churches, towers… in the medieval ages this was a powerful zone and there are still many signs of it.
The ride is mostly by flat bike paths, along the river, along the coast or in the Greenways. Biking is a unique and way to discover this zone, full of small villages dispersed in the territory.
The Costa Brava has a strong personality. The route will lead you to discover many coastal villages and beaches. Some of them are big and have a promenade, others have no buidings at all, nearly like they were when the iberians lived here…
The route has plenty to offer, not just about history but also about gastronomy, small and charming shops, sites to be discovered…
