What to expect from Calella de Palafrugell
Beautiful disorderly white houses, their typical narrow streets, and several small vibrant and magical coves. This is Calella de Palafrugell, one of the few coastal fishing villages that has been able to preserve the charm that existed before tourism arrived. Not only its streets betray it, also the roofs of the sloping houses, and some of the typical fishermen’s houses that still exist.
This old fishing village is located in an enclave surrounded by rocky coast, stained with beautiful coves behind on the other, with an impressive landscape just behind them, to the north, in Cap Roig – Castell, ideal to walk hand in hand with the couple, or to do it with the bike. And, to the south, you will find the beautiful jewel of Llafranc.
It has less than a thousand inhabitants, and if you are lucky enough to lose yourself in this municipality, we recommend you to visit its Port Bou beach with its typical boats in the sand, reason why which is also known as the “beach of the boats”.
Two major events take place in this place: La Cantada de las Habaneras, which takes place in said Port Bou beach, and the Cap Roig Festival, which takes place in the Garden Botanical of Cap Roig and that concentrates every year to artists of international recognition.
