Overview

In the north of the Costa Brava, just 48 kilometres (30 miles) south of the border with France, is the Cap de Creus Peninsula, a wonderful place where the Pyrenees mountains are immersed in the Mediterranean Sea and give life to a landscape that is impressive in its beauty: the first natural park in Catalonia.

There you will be surrounded by the sea, the sharp cliffs where waves crash, pine forests, olive grove terraces and vineyards. The presence of people is almost zero, so during the walks, you will always find peace and quiet.

  • You will have a privileged and magical view from the trails that will take you through the reserve.
  • You will be able to travel back in time, thanks to the historical richness of the region. You'll find Roman ruins, prehistoric dolmens and castles.
  • You will discover charming villages, beaches, steep coves and rocky bays.
  •  You'll walk along cobblestoned streets, traverse medieval arches and get to know fishermen's huts converted into restaurants.
