Experiences in Begur

Pals


Pals

Our first stop after Begur, Pals is another wonderful chunk of medieval landscape on the Costa Brava. Its floral decoration lining the streets turn a simple walk into a Provençal delight. This combination of historical monuments, surrounded by immense corn fields and majestic sunflowers, is formed of the castle, wall and town. The 11th century Roman tower known as the Torre de Les Hores should not be missed.Past the cobbled streets with half-moon arches and façades with ogival windows and stone balconies in the Gothic quarter, you reach the wall defended by the four towers and the breathtaking Josep Pla viewpoint, from where you can view the wheat fields of Empordà through to the majestic Medes Islands. The tombs in the Calle Mayor and the Museum of Archaeology are noteworthy, the small and original carefully decorated souvenir stalls and terraces from where you can contemplate the almost hypnotic beauty of the area.
