Vic – one of the oldest cities in Catalonia, the first mention of it dates from the III century BC (!); at that time it was one of the most developed cities of the Iberian Peninsula. The city lies in a valley, sandwiched by mountains from all sides, which is why it has its own unique microclimate.
Today, Vic is famous for its sausages and rich historical heritage. Among the sights it is worth mentioning the famous market square, the 45-meter-high bell tower of the impressive Cathedral, as well as the famous Romanesque bridge across the Meder River.
