We're planning the last part of our trip to France and Spain. So many wonderful things to see and do, but only limited time, so we've narrowed down our list of places to see and do on our way from Collioure to Barcelona. Please tell us if we're being overambitious. This part of our trip will be in mid June. We'll leave Collioure after breakfast and drive to Figueres (Google maps suggests an inland route of about 45 minutes). We only want to see the Dali the museum (about 2 hours?), and then get back in the car to drive to Montserrat (we'll need a stop for lunch--suggestions?) which Google maps says is about a 2 hour drive.
Although I'm sure the monastery has a lot to offer, we only want to do the cable car ride up and down. My geologist husband is interested in the rock formations, and I love a cable car ride, and beautiful panoramic views. Of course, if the weather is uncooperative, we'll skip this part of the trip.
From Montserrat, we'll drive to the airport to return our car, then take a cab to our hotel near Plaza Catalunya, where we'll stay for the next 3 nights.
So--your thoughts? Suggestions for a lunch stop between Figueres and Montserrat?
Many thanks--you all have the best ideas!
