Pals / Begur
Located in the heart of Empordà, the town of Begur and its beaches are one of the most wonderful spots on the Costa Brava. The town boundary takes in the impressive hills of the Begur Massif and an extensive coastline washed by the Mediterranean sea. Begur’s old town preserves numerous monuments left as legacies of significant moments in the town’s history. It is found high on a hilltop, presiding over the surrounding Catalonian countryside, offering her visitors fantastic views, interesting cobbled streets and narrow tree lined roads to explore. The central square is an ideal resting place to sit and enjoy the Catalonian way of life over a glass of the excellent local wine, made from grapes grown in the nearby hills. Together with its eight coves and small beaches, and the Romanesque centre of the village of Esclanyà, Begur and its natural surroundings are an unforgettable place to visit.
Pals is a beautiful medieval village that has preserved its historical and cultural heritage throughout the centuries. It was built around a fortress on the top of a mountain, overlooking the rolling landscape up to the Montgrí Massif. The historic quarter features picturesque arches and doors and in its cobbled streets you find several art galleries and small shops selling artisan pottery. Pals´ surroundings offer a beautiful natural park, an immense beach, dunes and rice fields. Various gastronomic and cultural events are organised throughout the year.
