Today we depart Girona and start our traverse of the Pyrenees. We’ll avoid the busy roads and drive you away from Girona and ride along much quieter ones to arrive at our hotel this afternoon. Our next two hotels are known as Paradors and are luxury hotels converted from palaces and castles – a government initiative that helps preserve historic buildings. Some climbing in today’s route, but nothing too serious. We’ll enjoy dinner together at our parador.
