Around Barcelona: Homage to Catalonia

Test drive this two-day road trip for the best of Catalonia
Pick up your Avis hire car from Barcelona International Airport and head north along the coast on the C-32 to the beaches and fishing villages strung along the Costa between Blanes and Port Bou. Dive the ocean corals at L'Estartit and admire the surreal art at the Dali Museum at Figueres.

From there you begin the exhilarating climb into Garrotxa National Park, through beech forests and the medieval towns and villages of Banyoles and Santa Pau, before heading back to soak up the mineral-rich waters of Caldes de Maravella.
