Indulge in a well-deserved retreat with our Gourmet Escapade to Vic.
The area of Vic is a large producer of pork, and has a longstanding charcuterie tradition. The most famous being Llonganisa de Vic, a sausage prepared with select meat from white pigs, fat, salt and black pepper, following the traditional production process, with a minimum curing time of 45 days.
Culture, history and a special affinity for sausages, the small Catalan city of Vic makes for an excellent day trip from Barcelona by train or car, or a weekend visit to really capture the atmosphere. Sometimes written as Vich, it is the capital of Osona, a landlocked comarca (county) in central Catalunya.
A long and storied history has put Vic on the map, but it remains there, among other reasons, because of its long and fervent political history and the mythical status of its sausage. Not many other cities in the world can hang their hat on that.
Catalans often claim Vic to be one of the strongest bastions of Catalan pride in the region.
A walk through the enchanting old town feels positively quaint. Visitors will come upon the Plaça Major. On Tuesdays and Saturdays, the square is filled with vendors selling all sorts of meats, cheeses, vegetables, homemade jams, local honeys and fresh flowers. On other days, it is almost regal. The farmers’ market is a visible reminder of the important crossroads between urban and rural at which the town sits.
The town’s primary merit is its long history, and the architecture—a mixture of Romanesque, Gothic, Baroque and Modernist. Visit the town’s cathedral is and the remains of Catalan artist Josep Maria Sert, (disciple of Dali) whose murals grace the central nave, are buried in the cloister.
A trip to Vic is not complete, however, without sampling the beloved local sausages, fuet and llonganissa, both products of the local pig farming tradition. The quality of the best lean pork, careful manufacture and the climatic conditions of the Barcelona county of La Plana de Vic, which hugely influence its curing, give the Vic Salchichón sausage its unmistakable aroma and flavor which have won it the international fame it deserves. Before lunch we visit one of the most famous producers and when we finish we departure to the after lunch and we go to visit neighboring region of Pla del Bages, one of the oldest Catalan wine region, but one of the most innovative.
During your visit to the winery, you will discover local variety of Grape, picapoll, a grape variety unique to this area.
