A Landscape Of Notably Incredible Attractions.
It's a region, tucked in
Spain's northeast corner, full of diverse terrain, making it the
closest thing you'll ever experience on a bike tour to geographic
schizophrenia. In less than two hours you can be standing atop a craggy
snow-dusted peak in the Pyrenees Mountains and then be swimming in a secluded, sun-flooded cove along Calalonia's
famed Mediterranean coast. In between, stretched over rolling plains,
are vineyards and olive orchards dotted with rural villages steeped
with Medieval history.
Catalonia has become the favored training ground for the
world's greatest cyclists. For not only does Catalonia offer diverse
terrain, but also diverse culture. Nearby Barcelona's Gothic Quarter
features many architectural wonders listed as World Heritage Sites. The
Montserrat Monastery, perched atop a pinnacle of rock at 2,380 feet, is
the alleged location where the Holy Grail was first discovered. And Figueres, the birth place of Salvador Dali, honors his artistic legacy
with the Teatre-Museu-Dali.
Regardless of Catalonia is an acronym of not, all it takes is one visit
to understand why it's become the number one hit on the bicycling
