What a beautiful sight.

When we first drove past the little village of Pals we already could see it from the road, build up against a mountain. What a beautiful sight! Especially the medieval Romanesque tower, known as the Torre de les Hores (Tower of the Hours) was very prominent in our view. At that time we already knew that we were going to visit the place and we were not sorry for that!

The Bay of Emporda on the Costa Brava.

Once we did visit Pals, we learned that this medieval town has a Gothic Quarter which has been substantially restored. We loved walking over the are cobbled streets which sometimes are interrupted by semicircular arches, fašades with pointed arched windows and stone balconies. The town wall contains four square towers which date from the 4th century. It lies in Catalonia, northern Spain a few kilometres from the sea in the heart of the Bay of Emporda on the Costa Brava. Truly worth a visit.

    I'm not the camping type but I think I could be convinced to try Mas Patoxas! Looks like a wonderful trip.
