The Costa Brava is one of the landscape treasures of Catalonia and falls in love with everyone: Small dream coves, where pine forests caress the transparent and full of life wàters of the Mediterranean sea, and the ancient, picturesque and charming fishermen villages.
From Cap Roig to Cap de Creus, the Costa Brava hides places of incomparable beauty that you must visit if you spend a few days in our apartments in Banyoles:
Calella de Palafrugell and Cap Roig: Probably one of the most photographed places in the Costa Brava. And nobody can resist the old fishermen's houses, the porches and boats of the Port Bo in Calella de Palafrugell. The Botanical Garden of Cap Roig, where the well-known music festival is held, it is also an interesting visit.
Cap de Begur: Old houses , the remains of the castle and spectacular coves hidden under steep cliffs such as Aiguablava, Sa Tuna, Sa Riera or Platja Fonda, of black sand, has given Begur the title of "most beautiful landscape of Catalonia ”. Do not miss the views of the river mouth of the Ter, the Montgrí massif and the Medes Islands from the castle.
L'Escala and the ruins of Empúries: The fishing village of L'Escala deserves a stroll through its Old town overlooking the sea, where you can taste the famous anchovies of l'Escala. You can not miss touring the Passeig d’Empúries, opened by the Olympic Games of Barcelona from 1992, linking the old town of L'Escala with the medieval village of Sant Martí d'Empúries, passing through the impressive Greco-Roman site of Empúries, where there is the Museum of Archeology of Catalonia.
Port de la Selva and the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes: From this quiet and small town in the north of the Costa Brava you can go walking, by bicycle or motorized, to the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, one of the best witnesses of Catalan Romanic architecture , located in a privileged environment.
Cadaqués and Cap de Creus: Considered by Salvador Dalí the most beautiful Village in the world. Everyone will fall in love with Cadaques. We recommend walking aimlessly through its alleys cobbled and narrow white houses nicely decorated with flowers. Those you are ready to go hiking along the Costa Brava, here is a great route: the path from Cadaqués to Cap de Creus, passing through Portlligat where there is the house-museum of Dalí. Walking among old terraces of abandoned vineyards and admiring them, and all each of the wonderful coves will reach Cap de Creus, an abrupt promontori modeled by the tramuntana wind and which falls to the sea, the northern end of the Costa Brava and the easternmost point of the Iberian Peninsula.
If you enjoy walking, we recommend that you go along the coastal paths that you will find on this one stretch of the Costa Brava, from which you will enjoy privileged viewpoints and can go stopping in the villages and coves to rest, have a bite or soak.
