DISCOVERING THE NATURAL LANDSCAPE OF PALAMÓS
To start your day, we suggest two very different ways of discovering the natural landscape of Palamós.
On the one hand, we recommend discovering the secrets of the seafront of Palamós on foot. From the promenade itself, a coastal path starts that follows the coastline as far as Calella de Palafrugell. On this route there are coves, beaches, traces of the history of Palamós (the Iberian settlement of Castell), and the Castell–Cap Roig Natural Space, a real natural fortress with nothing else like it anywhere on Catalonia’s coast. This route connects to the Baix Empordà’s network of paths (370 km) and its cycle touring network (250 km), so you can combine the coast and the interior of this spectacular region.
And you can also enjoy nature by doing all sorts of nautical activities for all ages and levels of experience: Diving, kayaking boat hire, sailing, snorkelling, paddle surfing, maritime excursions, etc.
THE FLAVOURS OF PALAMÓS
The Empordà, which is strategically positioned and has a prestigious and internationally recognised gastronomic culture, offers a welcoming and distinctive land, in an ideal location for making quality wines.
In mid-morning we invite you to discover the cellars of the Empordà Designation of Origin, which offer a chance to get to know their installations and taste some of the region’s best wines.
If you want to rest for a few hours, Palamós has over 70 restaurants offering a wide range of cuisine that will enable you to find food for all tastes, whether you want innovative cuisine, traditional home cooking or the genuine cooking of the fishermen.
THE FRUITS OF THE SEA
From four in the afternoon, the port of Palamós is an ideal place to watch the trawling fleet return and for doing a guided tour of the fish auction from the viewing platform of the auction house and the fishing interpretation centre and walking around the fish market. Ending your visit at the Fishing Museum, you can go on a journey through the past, present and future of sea fishing on the Costa Brava.
You can complete your visit by going to the Fish Space, to discover the characteristics, cuisine and gastronomy of the produce you saw being auctioned a few moments before.
THE OLD TOWN AND THE SUNSET
To end the day, lose yourself In the old town and enjoy panoramic views from the town’s different viewpoints, from which you can enjoy a magical sunset.
The day’s reward awaits you, dining by the sea and eating some of the produce you saw come into the port in the afternoon, or the star product, Palamós prawns. If you don’t want to sit down for a meal, you can do a tapas tour around the different bars in the old town.
