Best Northern Spanish Road Trips - Don't think these places are found in a Rick Steves Spain Tour

Spanish road trips from Salou

Again like in Montpellier we took a few road trips to even teenier villages. Capafonts was one of our favorites. It was a village that encircled a mountain. You parked on the outer ring and walked up the hill to the town center. There we had a most lovely meal and laughed heartily with everyone in the restaurant as we learned how to drink wine and some unknown liquor out of a strange multi-spouted glass thingy.

At this restaurant we made the mistake of actually asking what the meal of the day was and because the waitress knew no more English than we did Spanish, the whole restaurant pitched in to help explain... it was very funny and all in all we could really only understand words like bull - “jambo” and sausage ensalada. Since then we have taken the approach the less we know the better off we are, ‘cause if it tastes good we eat and if it doesn’t we don’t. Lucky for us everything in this meal was fabulous...One of the best.

It is apparent to us by now that we are definitely not on a “Rick Steves” tour and because many of the most intriguing little villages we’ve see in both France and Spain are so small that we could not find them on any of our maps we started taking exit pictures of village signs, just so we could try to keep a record of where we had been.

Here are pictures from places like Maspujois, Le Febro, Tivissa, Prades, Mont-ral and Alexar. They were all so cute and each has its own little story.
