The Bajo Ampurdán or Baix Empordà is a region of the province of Girona where you can enjoy both the coast and the countryside . Winding along the Costa Brava we find beautiful fishing villages, pine forests, roads with impressive views, as well as beaches and secluded coves. And if we go to the countryside, we will come across castles, medieval villages, imposing farmhouses and a soft relief that reminds us of Toscana.
Calella de Palafrugell is one of the most charming villages of the Baix Empordá. Writer Josep Pla was born here, a lover of his land, like his works show. Palafrugell is a town which is turned over to the sea, where we can see the fishermen in full regalia, taste the fresh fish and take a dip in the ocean. In Palamós you can also experience this marine environment and enjoy a great delicacy: Palamós prawn.
To relax by the sea, nothing better than getting lost on the beaches and in the coves of Begur, Calonge, Playa de Aro. The historical centers deserve admiration, some with vestiges of old castles and defensive towers. If you want to combine a hike with a nice swim in the ocean, we highly recommend hiking some coastal roads of the Costa Brava, which formerly served to prevent smuggling, and as an aid to sailors in case of shipwreck.
The countryside of the Baix Empordà houses extensive cultivation fields, farmhouses and medieval villages, such as Peratallada or Pals. In Pals, its cobblestone streets, its arches, the church of San Pedro and the Torre de las Horas stand out. And one cannot leave without tasting the delicious Pals rice.
