May Trip

We are planning a 12 day trip the end of May. We are flying from the U.S. to Barcelona and have booked a hotel for the first 4 nights in Barcelona. We are planning on renting a car and want to tour Costa Brava and the Pyrenees. I have read many comments and suggestions and am really wondering about a route to take and realistically how many places we can visit in 6 days. We will return to Barcelona and spend the day/night there before we fly home. Know we want to go to Begur, Gerona, Aiguablava but need some guidance/suggestions. We like a leisurely pace and my husband loves to stop and photograph sights.We have travelled to Spain before and have loved our stays in paradors. Looking forward to your help!

One place not to miss is the small medieval town of Besalu, one of the most beautiful towns in Spain.

In Lloret de Mar there is the beautiful garden of Santa Clotilde.

I think if you add Besalu to your itinerary (which you must!) you probably have enough to fill your 6 days at a leisurely pace. However, if you can fit it in, visit Pals (near to Begur) as it´s a photographer´s dream!!!

Fabulous photo opportunities on the Cami de Ronda, coastal walk between Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc and beyond. Also from the lighthouse above Llafranc and the Cap Roig Botanical Gardens in Calella de Palafrugell.

As mentioned above Pals if fantastic too as is Peratallada.

My husband is a very keen photographer and never tires of these views.
