Advice for day trip from Girona

I'll be renting a car in Girona for a day. I was planning to do some inland towns, such as Besalu, but would also like to visit a coastal town or two as well (Tossa?). We are mainly interested in history, culture and scenery (i.e., not sitting on the beach or drinking). Any suggested itineraries for the day? Thanks.

1. Re: Advice for day trip from Girona


if you would visit Besalú, I suggested add in the "list" also Castellfollit and Santa Pau. There are also some vulcanos (sleepy) easy to visit: Croscat (is the easier and interesting) and also Santa MArgarida.

Riudaura and el Mallol and La Pinya, Hostalets (at the other side of Olot) could be interested also. Theya a re very tiny villages but lovely! and not very far from each other. Anc if you like scenarys this part of the Garrotxa are really nice.

Near of Castellfollit there are a villages named Oix and a bridge: Sadernes, very nice. The landscape is very different to the rest of the comarca (problem: the road has many curves)

If you have a car, I suggested visit Port de la Selva, Cap de Creus and Cadaques area. Really nice!(in Port de la Selva you can visit the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes) in the top of a hill.

There a re others villages as : Setcases, Camprodon , Ripoll, Banyoles..interesting if you have a car (public transport is not easy); but sometimes the roads have many curves again....

but I suggested if you have only a day choose one option : or sea or inside...I think is not possible to see all without lot of stress!!
