On the Costa Brava
Cadaqués is the most easterly town on the Iberian Peninsula and is located in the very north of the Costa Brava and on the Cap de Creus peninsula. Authentic and picturesque, it is a beautiful place where time passes more slowly; where plenitude and tranquillity are around every corner; where you simply wish you could stay.
Grab your best walking shoes and let's go and discover this typical corner of Catalan culture.
