The Catalunia region
Costa Brava is the National Geografic best of the World destination 2012. Its nature, climate and history create a setting of odd, haunting beauty that is hard to grasp, but that never fails to seduce, with its lush vegetation propped against the blue and green immensity of the sea. Right up to the edge of the sea, hanging on occasions over abrupt cliffs, on others in the actual proximity of the beaches, the vegetation paints the fine golden sand green, blending with the ochre of the earth, inland, and together with the dominant landscape.
The 16ºC of average annual temperature, with moderate rainfall, and the 2,500 hours of sunshine that illuminate the historic-artistic vestiges, recalling the existence of a notable past, are only the visible aspects of a reality that has a hidden pulse waiting to be discovered. Here you have some spots you can't miss:
Empuries is the most important Greek archaeological site to be found in Spain.Its origin stems from the settlement of Greek colonisers during the 5th century A. C. The town was reformed by the Romans, and in the 1st century B.C. Cesar founded another town of a square layout, populated by army veterans, with remains of mosaic and wall painting.Excavation has revealed important pieces most noteworthy being Greek bronze, ceramic and sculpture.
Cap de Creus nature reserve
A peninsula in the north of the Costa Brava which sits on geological levels of more than 450 million years and which, since 1984, has been considered a natural protected open area under the category of natural park.
Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery
In the municipal area of El Port de la Selva, the Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes rises majestically in the middle of the mountain overlooking the entire peninsula of Cap de Creus.
The Salvador Dalí Triangle
The life and works of this painter from Figueres are condensed into three emblematic areas: the Theatre-Museum in Figueres, the House-Museum in Portlligat and the Púbol Castle.
The Old Town of Girona
Strolling through the old part of Girona is not just walking down the dark narrow streets there are along the right bank of the River Onyar: it is allowing oneself to be captivated by the traces left by time in the form of architectural and cultural remains
Iberian settlement in Ullastret
An important Iberian site that dates from the 7th century BC and which is set on Sant Andreu mound, about two kilometres from the village of Ullastret.
Coves in the Baix Empordà County
The small bays are the sweetest aspect of the Costa Brava, where the mountain and the sea caress small maritime towns surrounded by golden sands
Over 2,500 restaurants throughout the counties of Girona welcome diners with a cuisine based on a combination of quality seafood and the best produce of the land
Palamós is located at the northern end of a large bay, which is popular for swimming, sailing and windsurfing. The town is a major port with one of the last remaining fishing fleets on this part of the Mediterranean coast. It is famous for the locally caught prawns.
The sea has defined the personality of the town and its inhabitants – it has written their history, it has provided meaning and a sense of vocation to their work, it has given character to their cuisine and colour and form to the landscape where they live.
We always feel the presence of the sea at Palamós – a sea that is always there, throughout the year. The warm summer sea on impeccable beaches of fine sand that has been refined by the waves over the years. The sea that has sculptured the rocks to offer us little beaches and idyllic, hidden-away coves of emerald green, that has moulded the coast to make it wild and true to its name of the “Costa Brava”. The sea of gentle springtime next to the water, which has given life, name and colour to the region's vegetation and wildlife. The romantic autumn sea that takes on a spectacular red hue as the days start to drawn in. The winter sea, when the north Tramuntana wind blows, when it's time to come together and listen to habaneras – songs of seafarers and fishermen – around the comforting flame rising from a pan of rom cremat (burnt rum).
The sea has always been – and will always be – central to Palamós as a town. Fishing, boats, beaches, the wind and the food…everything at Palamós bears the stamp, the aroma and the colour of the sea.
And behind the town is the surrounding area of Empordà. An authentic little “country”, which Ancient Greece, at the height of its prosperity, gave the name Emporion.
A land that is rich in variety, fascinating, full of life, of traditions and history that begin at the sea and head inland towards fields of wheat, towards cork oak and holm oak groves…rich, extensive. The Empordà of Salvador Dalí-like dreams, of spontaneous decisions, of whimsical thoughts, of impulses, and of the northerly wind (known as the “Tramuntana”). A genuine gift for the senses of those who live or visit.
Such is the area that surrounds Palamós – the sea, in essence, at its most spectacular.
Here, in the very heart of the Costa Brava, at the foot of the coastal mountain range of Les Gavarres, in the unbeatable setting of inland Empordà – warm and authentic – you too can feel like the sea. Palamós – it will fill you with unforgettable feelings and memories.
Palamós has all everything to offer you a relaxing but also dynamic stay (if you're looking for something more active).
Palamós' location, facing the sea and at the foot of the coastal mountain range of Les Gavarres, means it is possible to use different natural areas for sea or land activities such as cycletouring or nautical activities.
At Palamós, Man's work at sea has become an unrivalled spectacle of colour for visitors, when, in the middle of the afternoon, the fishing boats dock at the port and unload their catch.
At Palamós, however, the world of fishing does not end at the quay – it continues at the Fishing Museum. With its focus on fishing, the museum is unique in the Mediterranean. The museum presents the past, present and future of fishing by means of a permanent exhibition and programme of activities associated with fishing and the sea along the Costa Brava.
Shopping in Palamós is to step into a sea of excitement. Hundreds of shops with a marked Mediterranean accent – both in terms of the products on sale and the friendliness and welcome extended by shopkeepers – give Palamós a character of its own. This modern centre has a wide range of products and services of the highest quality.
A visit to Palamós is not complete without a stroll around the Mercat Municipal (Town Market) – full of fresh fish and seafood brought in by the fishing boats every afternoon, and fresh produce picked by expert hands from the fields and market gardens in the area. Another must is to wander around the old part of the town (casc antic), dotted with shops, pavement cafés and pubs, and enjoy the genuineness and welcome of natives of the town.
Palamós' more than 70 restaurants offer visitors an extensive and varied cuisine with something to suit all tastes and budgets – establishments of every kind, serving dishes of the day, daily menus, tapas, the best à la carte menus offering innovative cuisine, traditional home dishes or authentic fisherman's fare.
When it comes to beaches, the Costa Brava is special. Although its seafront is stony and wild – which is why it's called the Costa Brava (Wild Coast) – the landscape can suddenly become softer, giving way to wide beaches with different textures of sand. Then, and every bit as appealing, there are the hidden-away coves to be found just below the high rocks of the coastline. A great place to appreciate this variety is Palamós.
