  • Dali Triangle

    Surrealist genius Salvador Dalí was born in Figueres, where the Dalí Theatre Museum houses much of his work as well the jewellery collection that he designed between 1941 and 1970. A visit to the Theatre-Museum affords an ideal opportunity to discover the unique, enthralling world of Salvador Dalí.


    Dalí spent many years in Portlligat cove near Cadaqués , where he bought up a row of fishermen’s houses in which he established his resindece and studio. The resulting labyrinthine structure contains furniture and personal effects, and Dali’s library and workshop. Visits by appointment only


    Púbol Castle was a gift from Dalí to his wife Gala.  Art collections, the couple’s famous Cadillac, Gala’s private apartments and a collection of her haute couture gowns are on display to the public, also the crypt where Dali´s wife and muse is buried, and a curious garden.



    A combination of them, a perfect full day excursion!

  • Bohemian life in Cadaqués

    The outstanding beauty and remarkable features of the town, which conserves its ages-old culture and popular traditions, has also attracted intellectuals and artists, helping to make this a modern town, as well as an inspiration to such famed artists as Salvador Dalí, who found in Portlligat beach the ideal setting for his home, in a house now converted into a museum. 

    Visitors will experience a nice and welcoming atmosphere and will be able to relax and have an aperitif or a snack facing the sea, like a great number of intellectuals did, such as Salvador Dalí or Marcel Duchamp among others. Some of these bars have photographs of famous people hanging on their walls, which is a sign of the fascinating glamour of Cadaqués.


     We suggest to combine Cadaqués and Portlligat as a perfect half day excursion followed by a wine tasting!

  • Historical and Archeological Sites

    Girona city located midway between the sea and the mountains, boasts a privileged position. The Old Town is one of the most evocative historical centres in Catalonia, with certain elements that are unique in Europe: the Carolingian wall, an exceptionally well conserved Jewish quarter, and the grandeur of the Cathedral’s Gothic nave, the widest in the world. Girona also has six museums which possess a patrimonial collection of great interest.

    Visit Girona Turisme


    We should underline the importance of the ruins at Empúries, today one of the major archaeological sites in the country, testimony to the arrival of the Greeks (580 BC) and the Romans (218 BC) to the Iberian Peninsula.


     Possibility of unconventional tours (themed and / or dramatized)

  • Rediscovering the Jewish world

    Among the largest and best preserved in Europe, the Call –or Jewish Quarter in Catalan– integrates the Bonastruc ça Porta center and its surroundings, which have gained the most important architectural and urbanistic interest.

     1h 10′

    A trip to Besalú, one of the best conserved medieval historic-artistic sites in Catalonia, is an ideal way to complement the Call in Girona. The famousMikvahor Jewish ritual purification bathhouse, unique in Europe, dates from the 12th century and is the main attraction of the Jewish heritage in Besalú.


    At Castelló d’Empúries there is another medieval Jewish quarter which once held one of the highest populations in the whole Girona area, and where the structure of the “New Synagogue” can still be observed.


    these 3 towns have their own tourist certification , RASGO, which strives to offer a high level of quality and rigour in products and services related to the Jewish heritage in Spain, preserving the essence of Sepharad.

  • The great Romanesque

    In the Alt Empordà county we find several monasteries, of which the most outstanding is undoubtedly the 10th-century Sant Pere de Rodes, spectacularly situated overlooking Cap de Creus with splendid view of the sea below. The  church is of a type unique to Catalan Romanesque architecture. The monastery, the church of Santa Helena and the remains of Verdera castle and settlement constitute this magnificent excursion.


    A 14th century cross, considered one of the jewels of Catalan silverwork, can be seen in one of the chapels of  the Monastery of Santa Maria de Vilabertran; This magnificent Romanesque site was originally an Augustinian canonry and contains outstanding elements.

    Walking along Camins de Ronda

    The camins de ronda are paths that run along the coast and have been used for various  purposes throughout history: to get to the coves if a ship was sinking, to watch the horizon to prevent pirate raids and even contraband after the Spanish Civil War. Now you can walk along them and peacefully enjoy the coastal landscape and get to the hidden coves.

    There are many trails to choose from, but we recommend the one from Roses to Cala Montjoi

    Hiking or cycling along the natural park of Aiguamolls de l’Empordà

    The Estanques route has been created within the boundaries of the nature reserve Els Aiguamolls de l’Empordà.

    The route has been totally adapted for bicycles and for hikers. It is ideal for cycle touring and there are parts that correspond with the GR92.

    It is 25 km long and mostly flat, it is therefore appropriate for all ages. It is an ideal place for the whole family where one can observe the magnificent plant and animal life of els Aiguamolls de l’Empordà.


    Most of the cycling network runs across the plain, though there are links by path and road to the coastal zones. You can discover the medieval villages and the breathtaking sceneries also with your family.
