A few days of relaxation in Calella de Palafrugell

Calella de Palafrugell is one of the few places on the Costa Brava that retains the charm of the local villages before the arrival of mass tourism. Traditional fishermen’s houses can still be seen in the narrow streets among the whitewashed houses with their Mediterranean tiled roofs.

This former fishing village is located on a rocky stretch of coast with many secluded coves, just beside the coastal village of Llafranc.

In the summer, Cap Roig Botanical Garden is the venue for the well-known Cap Roig musical festival. Another internationally famous event is the annual sea shanty concert, attracting thousands of visitors to the beaches on the first Saturday in July every year.
