Figueres

Located just across the border from France in the easternmost point of Spain, Figueres is a Catalan city which, when translated literally, means "Fig Tree" in the local Catalan language (a language spoken mainly only by older Catalans - it was banned under Franco's rule).

The city has an attractive, compact Old Town as well as some beautiful buildings and interesting museums. Its most famous attraction is the Salvador Dali Theatre Museum, dedicated to the work of the city's favourite son. The museum is housed in an old theatre which Dali himself bought and converted, having already achieved international acclaim for his work.

The Castle of San Ferran in Figueres is recognised as the largest castle in Europe and has had a chequered history. It has served as a prison, was occupied by Napoleon and was the last remaining outpost of Republican Spain during the Spanish Civil War. Franco bombed the town and castle as he narrowed in on victory.

“We loved the tour and could not fault. Unfortunately we had considerable problems with getting answers from head office before we went and since our return I have completed a full questionnaire, have indicated what we thought of GTR and received many requests from the peole who deal with the baggage asking us how many shirts etc we took. All this ruins the high opinion we had of the tour itself..

“The above holiday from 10-17 June was excellent apart from the luggage offer which was a fiasco. Of the 20 on trip only 1 couple took advantage of your offer and their luggage didnt arrive until the last day which was diabolical. The Tour Guide was first class, very helpful and attentive with high regard to safety bearing in mind all were elderly . The hotel room and food was excellent as were the staff. The situation of the hotel on the beach was wonderful and ideal for a holiday with a sandy beach. The visits arranged were good including all the train and coach trips. As I said apart from the luggage disaster the holiday went well and enjoyed by all.
