Luxury bespoke holidays and tours to Hotel Llegendes de Girona, Girona

From the famed banks of Girona's River Onyar with its colourful architecture, it is a short walk to Hotel Museu Llegendes de Girona, where the striking red facade feels very at home. A four-star boutique hotel in the romantic old town, the age of the structure is evident in the ancient stonework that peeks through. It is clear that the structure has seen a revitalising refurbishment, with a subtle upwards extension and large glass panes giving insight into modern interiors. Enter under an unassuming, semi-circle arch into an environment where angular and contemporary furniture uplifts raw, exposed stonework. The breakfast room shows a similar blend of influences, the image of freshness under cellar-like arched ceilings with sleek, white furniture. This venue is transformed by night into an intimate bar where guests can start the evening with a cocktail before stepping out in search of an evening meal. Amid the narrow streets of Girona, Hotel Museu Llegendes de Girona offers a place of rest for weary wanderers. Take a seat on the terrace and watch city life carry on around you, or you can enjoy one of a menu of massages that the hotel offers. With just 15 rooms, the hotel guarantees a sense of space that might normally be sacrificed due to the location - particularly in the vast duplexes. The hotel therefore provides a spacious foothold for discovering Girona.

About Catalonia and Eastern Spain

An Expressions tailor-made holiday to eastern Spain feature some of the best four and five star hotels in Catalonia and Valencia, including luxury beach resorts on the Costa Brava, mountain retreats in the Catalan Pyrenees and city hotels in Barcelona and Valencia. Eastern Spain is a diverse area with buzzing cities and mediaeval towns, rugged coastline and sandy beaches, soaring mountains and lush river deltas. There is a great wealth of historical and cultural sights throughout Catalonia and the Valencian community, both within the main cities and hidden away in the countryside. Although Barcelona is the main draw for visitors to eastern Spain, the rest of the region is well worth visiting and offers tremendous diversity. During a holiday in eastern Spain, visitors can trek or partake in mountain sports, relax on the beach and visit historic towns and cities all within the space of a few days. Catalonia itself is a unique region which provided inspiration for a number of famous artists such as Dali and Picasso, and retains a strong regional identity which is evident in its language, distinctive cuisine and lively local festivals. In the north is Catalonia, whose capital is the dynamic and cosmopolitan city of Barcelona. With unique architecture and a rich culture, gourmet restaurants and lively bars, golden beaches and tranquil parks, it is not surprising that Barcelona is one of the most visited cities in Europe. Away from the city there is an abundance of cultural and historical attractions as well as areas of stunning natural beauty. The entire region retains a strong regional identity, with its own commonly used language, distinctive cuisine and lively local festivals. Towns and cities including Girona, Tarragona, Vic and Lleida are home to a variety of highlights including mediaeval castles, cobbled old towns, ancient Roman ruins and modernist architecture. Stretching north towards the French border are the pretty coves, jagged cliffs and golden beaches of the Costa Brava, where you can still find wild and untouched stretches of coastline in between busy coastal towns. Meanwhile, inland are the snow-capped Pyrenees, a towering mountain range which forms the border with France and is dotted with remove villages, an ideal setting for trekking and partaking in mountain sports. Past the vineyards and rice fields of southern Catalonia is the Valencian Community, whose capital is Spain's third-largest city. Valencia has reinvented itself in recent years with futuristic architecture and a sophisticated port area which contrast with the historic buildings of the atmospheric old town. Further south are the sprawling beach resorts of the Costa Blanca, but if you head away from the Valencian coastline you will find craggy mountains, peaceful nature reserves, colourful citrus groves, traditional villages and ancient fortresses.

Highlights of Catalonia and Eastern Spain

Barcelona's Gothic quarter, a maze of narrow streets and plazas which is home to historic buildings including La Seu Cathedral. Modernist architecture throughout the region, particularly in Barcelona where Gaudí­ designed works including the Sagrada Familia church and Park Guell. Green spaces within Barcelona such as Montjuic, a fortress-topped hill, and Parc de la Ciutatella, a popular park with a zoo and several museums. The City of Arts and Sciences and the Fine Arts Museum in Valencia. Historic monuments within Valencia including a 15th century silk exchange and a Cathedral, home to a Holy Chalice which is said to be the Holy Grail. The Monastery of Montserrat, a religious complex in a spectacular setting atop craggy mountains with chapels, hermits' caves and numerous nature trails. Wineries in towns such as Sant Sadurní d'Anoia and Vilafranca del Penedès. Tarragona, a port city with fascinating Roman remains. The ancient walled city of Girona. Vic, a quintessentially Catalan town with an outstanding market. Cardona, a picturesque town with an impressive fortress. The renowned Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres. Charming towns along the Costa Brava such as Cadaques, as well as those further inland such as the colourful town of Begur. Pretty villages in the Pyrenees, where visitors can also hike and partake in mountain activities. Wildlife in the wetlands of the Albufera Natural Park.

Festivals in Catalonia and Eastern Spain

Gastronomy in Catalonia and Eastern Spain

Cuisine in eastern Spain takes inspiration from both nearby France and from central Spain whilst making use of local ingredients available including seafood, fresh vegetables, meat and game. Paella, the rice dish which is known the world over originated in Valencia. Barcelona is home to some of Spain's best restaurants, with gastronomic chefs creating innovative cuisine and over 20 boasting at least one Michelin star. Typical dishes include unusual ‘sea and mountain' combinations which use both meat and seafood, ‘Pa amb tomàquet' (bread with tomato, oil and garlic), ‘Fideuá' (a variant of Paella with pasta), ‘Zarzuela' (a seafood stew), ‘Escudella’ (a stew containing vegetables, meat, rice and pasta) and ‘Crema Catalana' (a Catalan version of a Crème Brûlée).

Climate in Catalonia and Eastern Spain

Eastern Spain enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate, although mountainous areas are somewhat cooler. Late spring and early autumn are great times to visit coastal areas as the weather is warm with temperatures of around 20 degrees centigrade, although some rainfall can be expected. Summer in the cities can be unbearably hot, but the coastline is cooled by sea breezes. Winter is generally mild with occasional rain and average temperatures of 10 degrees, whilst temperatures regularly drop below freezing in the Pyrenees and snow often falls.
