I will start by saying I was only in Vic for a couple hours and it wasn't a day when the square had the market set up, so I'm sure the place is a lot more lively on that day during the week. My group stopped here for lunch on the way further north and there was a little free... More

There is nothing wrong with Vic city itself except for it is really not worth of the time to drive here. There were very few sites to see, and it did not feel safe for a town of this size. Suspicious people were all over the town, in different streets big and small, had to hold my handbag tight to... More

Small plaza for sure and different. It is sandy with historic buildings surrounding it. When you are in Vic for a short visit go to the tourist office where they speak excellent English and they have a map in English for a self guided walking tour of the historic old town of Vic. It takes about 90 mns to walk... More

Some interesting building surround this place in special to buy "fuet", thin spicy sausage tipical of Catalonia) A little charming but not too special. Some terraces in a further no too turistic city, may be because i found serious-minded people who argue avoid "spanish" or similar sense (french too)
