Well, in Fact I am living in Germany but I am from Palamós. This is the town I know best -and love more!!- in the world. I was born and grew up there. There live my whole family and all my friends. My teachers, my neighbours, my backer,... All in Palamós!!! What else could I say about Palamos to show how much do I love it????
There are soooooo many things I could explain about, that I guess I won't be abble to. So if you have questions about, just ask me, please!!!!!
Palamós is a town that lives for, at and with the sea. The mediterranian belongs to the soul of Palamos, as the taylor to his scissors or a poet to his words. It is not possible to concibe Palamos without the sea. It is all around.

This is a so-called "Cala". A "Cala" are very little, tiny beaches in which hundred of years ago, fishermen built their houses. Nowadays, people of Palamos, (most of them grandgrandchildren of those fishermen) restaured them very throughoutfully and come here on weekends to enjoy life and relax.

- Pros:Wonderful sights; not a tourist crow; great nightlife in summer

- In a nutshell:Wonderful town for relaxing and enjoying life
