History buffs shouldn't miss out on visiting Vic, one of the bastions from Catalonia's Roman period. Once the capital of the region, today it is the ambassador of the region's desire for independence. Spiteful flags, representative of a city with an elaborate heritage, hang on balconies and in windows. This heritage can be seen in places such as the central square, Plaza Mayor, which is covered with sand and surrounded by traditional crenellated small buildings. However, if this city has been able to become one of the emblematic municipalities of the region, this is partly due to its superb Roman cathedral. Dating from the 11th century, it still holds some original pieces and several paintings that are worth having a look at.
In addition to the architecture here that holds a few surprises, the city's culinary heritage will leave your mouth watering. Indeed, there are many pig farms around the city, which means you won't ever have a hard time finding a selection of cooked meats. Because of this, many of the restaurants lining the medieval streets offer a number of regional specialities.
