The medieval Empordanet


With its admirable Gothic shapes and Conservation , the medieval town of Pals has become one of the Costa Brava’s attractions and snooping parts for all those who admire the ancient walled towns.

Pals is a good example to deeply know the culture and medieval tracks left on the Mediterranean coast. The first documents of the municipality dates from the eleventh century, when its castle was built.

  • Pals

The walled town suffered several military clashes that caused the loss of most of its assets, and that meant the only conservation of its defensive structure. It is a circular Romanesque tower built between the XI and XIII century. Its 15 meters are based on a natural rock platform, where we also find visigoth’s tombs. During the fifteenth century it was used as the town’s bell for what is known as the Tower of Hours.

The old Pals history rises on a Hill Surrounded plans, which originally was a marshy area. One of the most representative exponents of the city is the Tower of Hours, a magnificent example of a Romanesque circular tower, and the church of Sant Pere, with a curious succession of styles ranging from the Romanesque to the eighteenth century. The highlight of this rise is Pedró viewpoint, from where you can see Les Medes Islands, the Montgrí massif, the Canigó and the Albera range. In addition to the walls and the medieval streets of its alleys, in Pals you need to look for the detailed gothic windows, arches, wells, the doors thresholds and a wide range of interesting corners.

At present, the site of the castle is occupied by the Pi i Figueras family, promoters of the restoration of the Gothic enclosure of Pals. In modern invoice, this house maintains the same architectural features as the rest of the city. Cobbled streets interrupted by arches, facades with lancet windows and stone balconies are some of Pals distinctives. The wall is another place that transports the traveler to the Middle Age. Four square towers remain standing still even dating back to the twelfth century.

It is certainly one of the most attractive destinations to visit if we talk about this kind of Historic Conservation. We recommend the visit.

Begur and its beaches

The coast of this small Catalan town has a beauty hard to match, in which the cliffs, pines and its hidden crystalline water beaches and coves are a paradigm sights of the Costa Brava. Begur counts with 8 marine areas. We recommend you two of the best beaches:

Sa tuna is a cove which is about 10 minutes away from the city center by car, a characteristic that makes it special and shortly frequented . Offers a nice swimm in a clean and transparent water, and calm walks through the Coastal Route.

Aiguablava is also another example of crystalline water beach, but in this case, its low depth and its fine sand are some of its natural charms.

On the other hand, Begur’s urban core is not less breathtaking. Its castle and its historic old part makes the town look alive. In addition, the colonial style of its streets makes it one of the most picturesque areas of the Costa Brava.

Medieval Towns

The area of ​​Empordanet (interior Costa Brava) also stands out for its medieval past. Peratallada is a Historic-Artistic declared town for its urban core as one of the most important medieval architecture and best conserved in Catalonia.

Madremanya is located on a hill top. Chaired by a large parish church fortified urban structure preserved medieval origins and a great part of the houses that took part of the village in the XVI, XVII and XVIII years.

Monells is an ancient castle, which has preserved the walls. The charm of the village resides in its medieval past when nobles and knights stayed.

Lighthouse of St. Sebastià

This lighthouse is one of the most powerful in Spain and it’s located in a tiny cape surrounded by rugged cliffs. Climbing a road with several corners from the beautiful beach of Llafranc, in Palafrugell, we find one of the beauties of the Catalan coast.

From its summit we can enjoy enviable views, where we can contemplate the beaches of the town as well as the prominent silhouette of the coast.

Girona and the old town

Being one of the provincial capitals of Catalonia, it is a relatively small and welcoming city. Its territory is crossed by four rivers, factor that divided it into several parts during the average age.

It has an artistic and historical heritage of great importance. Its Cathedral is famous for belonging to three different architectural styles: Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque. Its cloister is Romanesque, its gothic nave and its baroque details. It has also been part of cinematographic locations, since its old part has been part of Game of Thrones’s sixth season, a successful serie.

Another city’s attraction is its old town (called Barri Vell). It is the heart of the ancient Roman Girona’s city, and contains the most important artistic heritage of the city. Basilicas, cathedrals and slender churches make up its cobbled streets. If we walk through them we will find the Arab baths, the Jewry (or Call Jueu) or the bridges over the river Oñar, among other attractions.



The Dalinian Triangle is the geometric figure that would appear, on a Catalonia’s map, if we drew a line between the municipalities of Púbol, Portlligat and Figueres. These three locations explain the trajectory of an artist of international projection but totally linked to its territory. This space, concentrated in a 40 km² territory, contains the elements that builds up the Dalinian universe: its museums, landscapes, lights, architecture, orography, customs, legends, gastronomy… essential to understand the work and Salvador Dalí’s life.

  • Dalí

A tangible and mythical concept, the Dalinian Triangle allows us to explore Dalí’s universe and to be a gateway to a multiple universe of sensations and subjective experiences for visitors.
