A privileged environment

  • The Girona counties offer the visitor all they could wish for: culture, leisure, commerce, gastronomy, leisure, sport… in less than half an hour by car, one can get to many unspoilt villages. We should highlight that Las Palmeras campsite is located next to the Natural Park of Aiguamolls de l’Empordà and that it is surrounded by other places of historical, artistic or natural interest.

  • Natural Park Aiguamolls de l’Empordà

    It is the second most important wetlands zone in Catalonia, after the Delta de l’Ebre, with a surface area of approximately 4,730 hectares, of which 825 are part of a natural reserve. The great variety of flora and fauna is very important. [More information]

     

    The Dali Triangle (Figueres/Cadaquès/Púbol)

    The great artist Salvador Dalí is the motivation behind the Dalí triangle: the Dalí Theatre-Museum of Figueres, which the artist had installed in the old municipal theatre of Figueres, where it is possible to see the most extensive range of Salvador Dalí’s work, from his first artistic experiments and surrealist creations to works from the last years of his life; the House-Museum of Portlligat, in the village of Cadaqués, the only permanent home of the Empordian. It was where he lived and worked until the death of Gala in 1982, when he changed his residence to the Castell Gala Dalí de Púbol, a space that the artist transformed into a mausoleum to his muse.

  • Girona

    Girona is one of the cities with the most personality in Catalonia, with a very rich heritage and imposing historical buildings. Walking through Girona is a discovery in itself, with large and small corners to get lost in where you can contemplate the remnants of this past: from the Romanesque to the Gothic, from the Jewish community to that of the Muslims. The Call – the ancient Jewish quarter – still preserves the magic of its narrow intertwined alleys, and co-exists with the Cathedral (XIV-XVII), a spectacular building with the widest Gothic nave in the world, the Arab Baths, the Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants or the Gothic former collegiate church of Sant Feliu.
