The Iberian Route: A family weekend in the land of the indigetes

A journey to Ullastret, the largest Iberian settlement in Catalonia with more than 2000 years of history
A family weekend full of lively activities in the Baix Empordà in a unique and spectacular natural setting. Go horse riding or mountain biking, visit the largest Iberian settlement in Catalonia, Ullastret, and spend the night in a country house!

On the first day you could take a bicycle tour, starting at the Can Muní rural and equestrian guest house in the heart of the Empordà and, at midday, you could take the car to have lunch in the charming town of Peratallada.

In the late afternoon you could then visit the Iberian settlement of Ullastret, the largest Iberian settlement in Catalonia where you can see at first hand the impressive legacy bequeathed by these pre-Roman people whose history is for all to see in the lands they inhabited more than 2,000 years ago. Afterwards you can spend the night in Can Muní.

The next day, after breakfast, what about an excursion on horseback through the well-kempt countryside? If your children are very small they could take a horse-riding class at the equestrian centre itself instead of following the route. You could follow this with lunch at Can Muní and take a dip in the swimming pool before leaving!

This route forms part of the "Get away from it all on the Iberian Route" initiative by the Museu d'Arqueologia de Catalunya and of the Catalan Government's Cultural Heritage Agency.

You can find all the information you need, and make reservations, online.
