"Medieval town of Pals" Top 5 Page for this destination Pals by Belsaita

Pals Travel Guide: 54 reviews and 166 photos

It's quite interesting that the medieval town of Pals, was once a seaport in a rice-growing area. Now it's located inland due to silting.

You'll find a very well-preserved medieval village (even a little too well restored!). You have sometimes this "theme park" feeling, too many tacky souvenir shops around... but nice anyway. Pals is still a great place to wander around, and there are a couple of pleasant bars to rest having a cold drink. I cannot speak about meals, as we had lunch in the way from Barcelona (at Sant Feliu de Guixols)

Better go off-season, it gets crowded during summer.


Old town

Nice corners to discover...

Platja de Pals (Beach of Pals)

The beach is now about 6km. from the old town.

(See my tip for more info about these huge aerials there)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A good alternative to beach activities, in case the weather turns unfavorable, or just to see something “different”.
