Calella de Palafrugell

Despite the tourism boom seen over the past few decades in the Costa Brava, and the rapid growth of what until recently were small fishing-villages, there are still some places that have managed to retain their charm. Along the streets of Calella de Palafrugell, it's possible to see the traditional white houses and cottages of fishing-folk; and if you listen hard enough, you're almost bound to hear the melody of a local sea shanty or 'havanera'. However, it has to be said that this authentic ambience does mean that hundreds of tourists visit each summer to sunbathe on the beautiful beaches..

Even though geographically this is part of the Alta Garrotxa county, since 1969 this picturesque village has belonged to the municipality of Camprodon, in Ripollès county. To get there you have to travel along a road full of curves, but we guarantee that the effort is worth it. In Beget, it really feels as though time has stood still, and its collection of streets and houses create an idyllic spot. Take the time to visit the Romanesque church, which is dedicated to Sant Cristòfor and where you'll find a beautiful wooden carving.

In this town there's history all around you. It might be best known for its Romanesque bridge, which is magnificent and endlessly photographed, but it's also worth visiting the synagogue and mikveh, the hospital-church of Sant Julià, the monastery of Sant Pere, the church of Sant Vicenç and Casa Cornellà. All in all, it's without doubt one of the best preserved and interesting medieval places in Catalonia. You should aim to spend a full day there, and explore every part of it.
