The best villages in Catalonia to spend your holidays
Although most tourists come to this beautiful fishing village in Catalonia to see the world of surrealism of Salvador Dalí. But there are many other reasons to come to this village in the Costa Brava and we are going to point them out for you.
Until the late nineteenth century, this village remained isolated by land between the mountains of Puig de Paní and Puig Bufadors, but living facing the sea it’s not a surprise that their only activity was fishing. Precisely this isolation is the main factor that has made in Cadaqués one of the best preserved Catalan villages.
Imagine a small fishing town, home of artists and painters, with 17 different sandy beaches and bays, offering a serene and authentic environment, and yet a vibrant nightlife. Santiago Rusiñol, Ramón Casas, Miquel Utrillo and Charles Deering, together with other artists and intellectuals, helped sculpt Sitges into the vibrant artistic and cultural center that it has become today.
The town offers a 4 km seafront promenade lined with palms, beautiful sandy beaches, and bays, amazing fiestas, first-rate tourist facilities, sporting activities, dozens of bars, cafes, restaurants, and loads of great top designer shops. It’s a cosmopolitan place where you can be yourself thanks to the utopian culture that encourages everyone to relax and have a great holiday.
Calella de Palafrugell
Very close to Palafrugell is the small fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell. In its origins, the town of Calella de Palafrugell was a refuge for fishermen. This picturesque village has become one of the most visited and well-known villages in Catalonia on the Costa Brava.
Its white houses, its narrow streets and the beauty of its coves and beaches have served as an inspiration to countless painters who have immortalized in their fabrics these beautiful landscapes.
Located in the heart of the Empordà, the town of Begur and its beaches make up one of the most wonderful places on the Costa Brava. Its municipal term is formed by a set of hills called Massif de Begur, and an extensive coastline, bathed by the Mediterranean Sea.
The beauty of our coastline, already evident from land, is transformed into something even more spectacular when viewed from the sea. The local people run companies providing quality nautical services that offer a wide-range of opportunities for doing water sports, going on excursions, and taking training courses and short courses. On Begur’s beaches, you can hire a sailing craft, take organized excursions by boat, or, amongst other sports, go diving, snorkeling, or kayaking.
