And continue enjoying everything the Empordà and the Costa Brava have to offer !
The Costa Brava and the Empordà are ideal places for enjoying holidays to suit all tastes.
A few kilometres from La Pera and Púbol, you can visit the main attractions of the Costa Brava- Empordà destination.
The Costa Brava is characterised by being unmistakably wild and yet very tidy: there are wide sandy beaches, and small solitary bays; beaches with every service and Blue Flags, and idyllic bays that are hard to reach; fishing villages full of charm and small fishermen's huts that are kept as they were more than 100 years ago.
The Costa Brava is a paradise for any traveller, particularly those who enjoy good food: the area has one of the highest concentrations of chefs with Michelin stars in the world, and the area is also home to the Best Restaurant in the World: El Celler de Can Roca, in Girona. Not to forget the local production of wines (DO Empordà), oils and other produce from the vegetable gardens.
Beyond its great beaches and good food, the Costa Brava and the inland part of the Empordà, have significant artistic, cultural and historic attractions. Apart from being the place in which Dalí was born and where he decided to leave his legacy, the Costa Brava has numerous monuments and museums of all periods and styles and even entire villages that evoke the Greco-Roman or mediaeval past of the area.
Former fishing villages such as Port de la Selva, Cadaqués, L’Escala, Begur, Calella de Palafrugell, Palamós and Sant Feliu de Guíxols share the territory with mediaeval towns such as Pals, Madremanya and Peratallada. Inland, La Bisbal d’Empordà, with a far-reaching cultural offer and renowned for being a leading centre in the production of ceramics, with a wide offer of shops dedicated to selling this product which is recognised and distinguished all over Europe. The cities of Girona and Figueres maintain the charm of their old houses, at the same time as offering a very broad, attractive commercial offer. In La Jonquera, you will find huge commercial surface areas and a large number of outlets for well name brands.
If you visit Púbol and the Gala-Dalí Castle, we recommend you not to leave without doing the complete Dalí Triangle route, continuing on to Figueres, where there is the Dalí Theatre-Museum and then on to Port Lligat where, down by the sea, you will find Salvador Dalí's house.
This territory is also fabulous for enjoying outdoor sports: just an hour's drive away, you will be in the high mountains, in the Girona Pyrenees, where you can enjoy an ideal climate all year round and a great variety of land with endless kilometres for walking, running, peddling and skiing and an interminable coast for swimming and sailing.
