The Empordà

The Empordà is a historical Catalan region in the province of Girona, divided into two sub regions, the Alt (High) and the Baix (Low) Empordà. The coastal area is part of the Costa Brava and it runs from the cliffs and small beaches in the north, between the French border and the Cap de Creus, to the large beaches of Palamós and Sant Feliu de Guíxols in the south.

In the Empordà, you can visit mediaeval villages or archaeological ruins, such as the Greek-Roman ruins of Empúries and areas of great beauty such as the Aiguamolls de l’Empordà Natural Park and the dunes on the beach of Sant Pere Pescador.

The Illes Medes, the Cap de Creus and the Montgrí Massif are ideal places for practising sporting, cultural or leisure time activities from the huge existing offer and we would also mention the cultural and artistic legacy that great characters such as Dalí left on towns such as Figueres, Cadaqués and Port Lligat, the so-called Dalí Triangle.
