  • Explore the beautiful villages of Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Pals

Full description
After meeting up at your bus, you will take the motorway before arriving in Calella de Palafrugell at around 9:45 AM. Calella de Palafrugell is a village of great beauty in both architecture and landscape. The town, splashed with small bays, becomes a fusion of land and sea that has an incomparable setting. Enjoy some free time to explore the village, enjoy the scenery, and take great photographs.

Later, start walking along Camino de Ronda, which is going to lead you to the neighborhood town of Llafranc. You will then hike for about 30 minutes over terrain which is easy to navigate for everyone. The “Camino de Ronda” borders all the Costa Brava, and was used to control maritime smuggling. Today, thanks to this, you can discover beautiful spots that wouldn’t be otherwise accessible

Heading back to the bus, you will go onward to Pals, a town located inland on the top of a hill. The location is entirely built into an ancient Medieval village, and the enclosure is crowned with a cylindrical tower from the 12th century. It also has an excellent terrace that offers stunning views of the Costa Brava and its immediate surroundings. Walking through the cobbled streets, you will feel like you have gone back in time.

In the afternoon, arrive at Figueres where you can enjoy an hour and a half to grab lunch (own expense). Spend your time exploring the quaint streets of the old town before visiting the incredible Dalí Theater-Museum, which houses the largest collection of his artworks.

I was a little anxious because the price was much lower than other tour companies, but I felt it was a wonderful tour worth more than the price. It was a pity that there was no hotel pick-up, but the meeting place was easy to understand at the tour desk, clean and comfortable. The only hot thing was the day of the bus which was quite warm, but the air conditioning was too effective and it was very cold. Everyone says it's cold, and I think it would be better to have a warm clothing that can be taken off and put on. The guide woman took pictures and was very kind.

Don't be late! Dalí is AMAZING!

We missed our bus by 5-10 minutes (got lost), so we took a train to Figueres to meet up with the group after they toured Costa Brava. We toured the Castell de Sant Ferran in Figueres, had lunch and cold drinks. It all worked out and the kids working at the agency were SO SO helpful in helping us figure out a solution to do a part of that tour. They also offered others if we wanted. But, I really wanted to go to the museum, which I highly recommend to Dali fans or non fans. He's incredible and so is his gallery. And our guide was great, but I intend to read more about the man behind the pointy mustache as I couldnt hear everything. I'll have to do Costa Brava another trip, but if it doesn't interest you, can take a high speed train to Figueres (~40euros RT) and Castle was 7 euros for self guided walk.

Enjoy! !

Not to mention the Dali Museum, but the place called pals that I stopped by was very nice. It was a very difficult place for individuals to visit, so it was good to go on a tour. The tour was in English and Spanish, so we only had a little inconvenience because we only knew Japanese, but we did not get lost because our guide carefully told us the time and place to meet did. It was a satisfying tour even if I didn't understand it, thinking that it would be more fun if I could understand the language.
