Pals Tours

star-5
127 Reviews
Pals
Surrounded by walls and marked with winding cobblestone streets, medieval Pals still has many of its aged stone arches, walkways, and balconies. A Romanesque tower dates back to the 11th century, while the Mirador del Pedró provides a lookout over the sea and surrounding Catalonian landscape dotted with citrus groves and rice fields.
 
The Basics
The historical village of Pals ranks among the most picturesque destinations on Spain’s Costa Brava. Many travelers visit the town on a day trip from Barcelona, with itineraries that often include Girona, Peratallada, and the fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell. Tours of the village nearly always include a visit to the Torre de las Hores (Tower of Hours) clock tower, as well as insight into the area’s medieval history.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Pals is a must-see for history buffs, couples, and travelers looking for a break from Barcelona.
  • Wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking over uneven surfaces.
  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat, especially if you plan to visit the beach.
 
How to Get There
Because the nearest train station to Pals is in Girona, the easiest way to get to Pals from Barcelona is either to take a train to Girona and a bus to Pals or to take a bus directly from Barcelona to Pals. Another option is to rent a car and make the 90-minute drive yourself.
 
When to Get There
For warm beach-worthy weather without the summer crowds, head to Pals during the spring or autumn shoulder seasons. Plan to visit during the annual rice sowing or rice harvest festivals for a deeper cultural experience.
 
A Day at the Beach
Though Pals is not on the coast, it is close to one of the best beaches on the Costa Brava. During the summer months, head down to Platja Gran de Pals, a crescent-shaped stretch of sand lined with pine trees, to cool off in the waters of the Mediterranean.

Royalty Costa Brava the Bluest Sea, Sites and Taste – Private TourWalking Tours

Royalty Costa Brava the Bluest Sea, Sites and Taste – Private Tour

Why should I go to Costa Brava? Because it’s one of the most romantic, gorgeous, unspoiled stretches of coast in Europe. Where else, can you drive or walk alongside rugged pink rocks with the teal-colored Mediterranean glimmering below, framed by grand, arabesque pines? Gloriously wild in parts and tastefully manicured in others, the Costa has some of the finest sandy stretches to elegant horseshoe bays and secluded smugglers’ coves. We will head for the stretch of coast between Pals and Palamos. Pals, is the walled hilltop medieval town, looks like a spectacular Hollywood scenery and the genteel horseshoe bays of Llafranc and Calella de Palafrugell which are two of the prettiest on the world. In Calella de Palafrugell at the wildest corner of Costa Brava, we will spend some free time to taste the exceptional sea food or any other meal you like and optional swim on the bluest part of the Mediterranean Sea.

Costa Brava one day from BarcelonaCultural Tours

Costa Brava one day from Barcelona

In this excursion we will know the Coast of Girona, baptized 100 years ago as Costa Brava, due to its peculiar abrupt and trimmed relief, dotted with small coves surrounded by pine trees and bathed by crystalline waters.- Its natural wealth is manifested in the fact that in a large part of its territory there are several Protected Natural Spaces, such as the Cabo de Creus, the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà and the Marine Reserve of the Medes Islands.- Apart from the characteristic relief of its coastline, the Costa Brava also owes its fame to its villages. Those who once were small fishermen's cores, with whitewashed white-walled houses and narrow and winding alleys, still retain that unique charm today.- This area has been throughout the times the place of entry, passage and settlement of different cultures and civilizations, which have left their mark until today, proof of this are the Greek and Roman sites of Empúries.
