Vic is a town some 65 kms from Girona and now that the road connecting the two is being upgraded it only takes 40 mins and is well worth the visit.
Dominated by a large square, in the style of the Plaza Mayor of Madrid and Salamanca, Vics is surrounded with impressive buildings dating back to when wealthy merchants built grand houses on the back of agricultural wealth created in the surrounding fertile valley.
Famous for its pork products, especially the traditionally cured suasages, it is still an important sector and large employer locally.
The Old Town of Vic is a great place to wander around, just make sure you look up as many of the terraces, tiles under the roofs and other architectural gems need a well trained eye to spot.
After all the walking be sure to pick a table in the sunny part of the square to sit and have a drink and watch the locals talk, eat, and enjoy themselves in this beautiful spot.
