Cadaqués. The most enchanting town on the Costa Brava
Cadaqués, Portlligat and the Cap de Creus area are located at the most easterly end of the Iberian peninsula, and is predominantly a fishing area with an artistic, cultural and historical charm offered by no other coastal town.
The town centre’s architecture is wholly Mediterranean, with its characteristic white houses and corners waiting to be discovered. The old town, the Church of Santa Maria de Cadaqués, the castle, the current Town Hall and the Cadaqués Museum are places worth visiting. Alongside the town is Portlligat with its strong connection to one of the most important figures in modern art and the leading exponent of Surrealism: Salvador Dalí, who found a source of light and inspiration in this corner of the country.
The geography of the coast has created an unusual and natural environment that is unparalleled on the Costa Brava: Cap de Creus. With more than thirty beaches and coves, some only accessible by foot or by sea, here there is a whole world to discover and enjoy the Mediterranean. Also, if you prefer the mountains, from Cadaqués there are also numerous hiking trails suitable for all ages and degrees of difficulty, running through Cap de Creus Natural Park.
All these differences, the history, the art, the culture and nature make Cadaqués a historic site that is protected as a cultural asset of national interest. Without doubt, it is the best tourist destination for those who seek quality in their holidays and incomparable surroundings.
