Charming villages of Empordà

  1. Peratallada
    The cobbled streets, the splendid arches and the flowered corners are the perfect place to stroll through Peratallada. The peace and tranquility we breathe are almost unique.

  2. Palau-Sator
    Its ramparts and castle are unmistakable symbols of its medieval past. The tower of the hours is its most emblematic building. You have never seen it?

  3. Cruilles
    Cruïlles is located next to the river Daró. The church of Santa Eulàlia, the hermitage of the Mare de Déu de l’Esperança and the monastery of Sant Miquel de Cruïlles are some of its attractions.

  4. Vullpellac
    Vulpellac is located just outside the Bisbal. It’s enchanting. It was built around a Gothic Renaissance castle. The old town is well preserved. Do you want a ride?

  5. Madremanya
    In fact, Madremanya belongs to the region of Gironès and not to the region of Empordà. However, its characteristics and its surroundings oblige us to include this beautiful city in the list of the essential points of the region.

  6. Monells
    The charm of its central square appeared on the big screen a few years ago, because some scenes of the movie “Eight Catalan names” were filmed. It is an authentic medieval town.

  7. La Pera and Pubol
    A city not to be missed for fans of Salvador Dalí’s works. The castle he gave to Gala can be visited daily. It was his residence for a long time; It is now a mausoleum dedicated to the woman and the museum of Dalí.
