Journey through Catalonia, Spain
June 9 – 14 or 16, 2015

Esoteric Quest Catalonia
Catalonia has one of the most vibrant and fascinating cultures in Europe, with a rich history stretching back millennia. For many centuries, it was deeply connected culturally, linguistically and spiritually to both Languedoc and Provence. We begin our journey by heading up the Aude valley toward the Pyrenees to the awe-inspiring, mountain top castles of Peyrepertuse and Queribus, one of the longest strongholds of the Cathars. After a night in the mountains, we travel to Cadaquès, a beautiful village located on a crystal clear bay on the Mediterranean, and a place much beloved by such artists as Salvador Dali for its light and color. Then we turn to Girona, one of the great medieval centers of Kabbalah, with its emblematic Jewish Quarter. We will spend the evening in the heart of the wildly beautiful Catalan countryside near the villages of Besalú and Rupit, known for their Romanesque churches and bridges. The following day we travel to the legendary sacred mountain, Monserrate, with its Black Madonna, spectacular views, and powerful sense of being high above the mundane world. We then drive to the southern region of Catalonia to the charming village of Miravet on the Ebro River, and the poignant site of the last Templar castle in Spain. If time allows, on the journey north to Barcelona, we will visit Corbera D’Ebre, a village that has been preserved as a moving monument to the Spanish Civil War. Our trip concludes in Barcelona where there are two optional nights exploring the many historical, artistic, esoteric and architectural features of one of Europe’s most engaging, colorful and multi-dimensional cities.
