Historical villages of the Costa Brava

ACTIVITIES  /  Burricleta, the Catalan e-bike

Activity description:

The medieval villages form an inextricable part of the Empordà landscape. Little villages located on top of small hills that outline the silhouette of this land and are revealed to the curious viewer.

The route starts off from Ocitània and as soon as we leave we come across fruit orchards, a real example of the type of landscape that we will find along the route. We are on our way to Gualta and we cross the old part of this village, which is irrigated by the Ter and Daró rivers.

We continue in a southerly direction and after a while we reach Peratallda. This village has been declared a historical and artistic reference, and contains many examples of medieval architecture. The village retains its old feudal image, featuring narrow winding streets, a fortified castle with its tower keep, a palace, the walls and Sant Esteve church. Also of note is the great moat, which surrounds the village, carved out of the living rock.

We leave Peratallada and go towards Pals where we come across "la Torre de les Hores" (The Tower of Hours) built between the 11th and 12th C.

In the Gothic quarter of the village there are paved streets and arcades, façades with lancet windows and stone balconies. In Pals there is a spectacular viewpoint (in the words of the writer Josep Pla), from where you can see the rice fields and the Medes Islands.

From Pals we head back north through the fields, crops and rural farmhouses towards our starting point.
