Hello travelers! I'm Yolanda, the only and unique official licensed local guide in Besalú. I speak 5 languages and I'm currently improving in two more. I can guide you as an official licensed guide all around Catalonia, but I live in Besalú and I'm proud of this beautiful town full of history. I consider myself easy going and kind to people, adapting myself to the needs you may have during the tour. I love meeting and talking with people from other countries. I've traveled around the world and I have lived in different places.From Paris to Istanbul, passing through Miami :) Now I have chosen the country side to live, and Besalú is this little place full of history that I want you to discover. Big cities are ok but the history, beauty and tranquility of Besalú are unforgettable. You can not miss it. I'm waiting for you!!

About the tour

You will enjoy the best tour of Besalú with the only official guide in town.

I'm an official Catalonia guide and I live in this amazing little town of Besalú.

I will make you discover the secrets of the jewish community and the Miqvé, one of the older jewish baths in the world.

History, secrets and legends are waiting for you in Besalú.

If you come on Tuesday, you'll be able to buy fresh local products at the weekly market.

We will start the tour by crossing the wonderful 12th century bridge, while we have impressive panoramic views of Besalú and we will travel back in time.

On the other side of the bridge, the narrow streets, the medieval squares, and the old stone houses will transport us to other times when the town was one of the most important in Catalonia.

We will enter the Jewish quarter, and there the jewel of Besalú will welcome us with open arms: the Miqvé, the best preserved Jewish ritual baths in the world. From the synagogue square we will have a unique panoramic view of the Romanesque bridge.

We will continue to the old monastery church of St. Pere consecrated more than 1000 years ago, the Romanesque hospital for pilgrims of St. Julià and the mezuzah that is preserved in one of the medieval buildings.

We will finish the tour enjoying a shot of our typical liquor made with green nuts and aromatic herbs: ratafia.

El tour fue muy entretenido, nos explicó todo de maravilla. Muy atenta, amable y con la información necesaria para contarnos todo sin que se hiciese pesado. Lo recomiendo porque la visita es muy interesante y porque Yolanda es una guía muy profesional. Le agradezco un montón que nos atendiese tan bien.
