  • The Keep or Les Hores Tower in the Sant Pere district. Pals, Gerona

Time is to be enjoyed here with it being a destination for ‘slow tourism’ in the cobbled streets, mediaeval walled enclosure and beach right on the Costa Brava.Read more...

What to see The walled enclosure will transport you back to the Middle Ages. Wander around the cobbled streets with their noble homes, stone balconies and round arches. Take a break in the Plaza Mayor square and let time pass you by at the Josep Pla vantage point. It offers views out over the plain and the Medes islands in the distance. We recommend also heading to the Church of Sant Pere and visiting the Submarine Archaeology Museum. It is housed in a 15th-century fortified home and has a permanent exhibition on the history of the wines and cavas of Catalonia. At the coast, head to Pals beach. A quiet sandy beach over four kilometres long for enjoying a dip in the Mediterranean right in the heart of the Costa Brava. The area offers many water sports, golf courses and even a trip to the Illes Medes Nature Reserve. Gastronomy Tasty cuisine based around seafood and local produce. Typical dishes include cod salads (esqueixadas), escalibadas (roasted aubergine, onion and peppers), chicken or rabbit stew with shellfish. Standout fish include sea bass and sea bream.
