This fishing village north of Girona has attracted many a visitor with its unique small town charm. Once Home to Dali this place has astonishingly managed to preserve its smallville feeling. Very few concrete blocks and hotels (in this area known to be representing one and the same thing) have been able to set foot here.
Being a motor cycle enthusiast's dream with all its winding roads and still decent tarmac the surrounding scenery will keep you mesmerized during your trip. (remember to stop and appreciate the views before you have an accident though...)
Now being the low season on the costa brava, many of the holiday resorts have closed. Also, be sure to book any accommodation in advance.
When Dining out, it is an advantage to be a seafood fan, with fish being the most preferred choice on the local menus. Expect to pay anywhere between 20-30 Euros for a meal, and beware of the common tourist pitfalls: often bread is charged extra; tax is added onto the bill, not the menu.
Don't forget to check out the Dali Museum in the nearby town of Figueres while you're down there - open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10:30 to 17:30h.
Tourist office: Cotxe, 2 - open Monday to Saturday from 10:30 to 13:00h and 16:30 to 19:30h. Tel: 972 25 8315
