B5 Tour description
Personal pick-up at your hotel or apartment in Barcelona. We drive north-west to the Pyrenees mountains. After a short breakfast by a mountain water reservoir, we drive up a mountain pass and journey through lovely valleys to arrive at the spectacular twin-peaks of the stunning Pedraforça mountain.
Next we visit the mountain village of Gósol nestled in the Pre-Pyrenees where world famous artist Pablo Picasso arrived by mule in 1906 to spend a summer capturing the picturesque village and splendid mountain landscapes on canvas. In Gósol we visit the ruins of the 13th century castle and medieval village, the Gósol Picasso cultural centre and enjoy lunch in the village square.
After Gósol we head deeper into the Pyrenees mountains to explore coal mining villages and we have the opportunity to see tracks of real dinosaur footprints fossilised on a cliff face that was discovered by open surface coal mining in recent years.
The dinosaur footprints are 65 million years old and the largest of their kind in Europe.
