An impressive fortified medieval town complete with imposing towers and a picture-perfect old quarter. Packed full of history and only seconds from the beach – that’s a win, win situation.
Camping in Costa Brava
Towns & Villages of Costa Brava
Wait until the day trippers have headed home and then enjoy the peace of this hill top medieval village. Enjoy the view over the craggy Medes Islands and one of the most gorgeous beaches on the Costa Brava – perfect for a late afternoon dip.
Step back in time as you wander around the cobbled streets of the Old Quarter or walk the city’s Roman Walls. Enjoy a leisurely tour of the impressive 14th century cathedral and beautifully restored Arab baths, but don’t forget to leave yourself a little time – and money – to browse the shops.
Whitewashed houses, café-lined harbour, beautiful beach. No wonder this was the summer retreat of choice of the Catalan high society and a source of inspiration for Dalí, Picasso and Mirό. The perfect place to seek out creative inspiration, or a nice seafood paella.
Indulge in some highbrow and lowbrow culture. Visit the City Museum, explore the modern architecture, drop into a couple of galleries – or enjoy the street entertainment over a leisurely lunch on the Ramblas.
A tiny village with an enormous view. Perched on the edge of a precipice, this charming medieval village is a tangle of narrow streets and homes built from volcanic rock. The views are just amazing – but don’t stand too close to the edge.
