Discover what to see in and around the village of Begur
Begur, Medieval village
The municipality of Begur is located in the Baix Empordà, between Pals and Palafrugell. Its town, with its deep-rooted personality and historical importance, is one of the reasons for visiting this area of Catalonia. Moreover, near this town you will find some of the most famous paradisiacal beaches of the whole Costa Brava such as: Sa riera, Aiguablava, Sa tuna and Platja Fonda.
From Domus Begur, we invite you to get lost in the streets of Begur and visit some of its most impressive monuments such as the medieval castle, which is located on a hill in the middle of the town itself, the group of Indianos’ stately homes, the 16th century defence towers, the Gothic church dedicated to Saint Peter and other historical buildings such as the Old Schools and the Cultural Casino.
Discover Begur Castle
A historical monument that you can’t miss during your visit to Begur is the Begur Castle, which was built during the 16th century and is a building declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest and currently a tourist attraction.
This emblematic monument is located right in the centre of the town and stands guard from the highest position in the town. The state of conservation of the stone is relevant, especially the main tower of the castle that keeps its cylindrical shape and its 5 meters high intact. Only a few remains of the interior and exterior walls have been preserved.
Come to the Begur Castle and discover its beautiful viewpoint that offers a panoramic view of the Costa Brava that is hard to forget. From up there you can see the Illes Medes, the Canigó mountain and, if the sky is clear, even Cap de Creus.
From Domus Begur agency we invite you to visit this building with your family, couple or friends. The occasion deserves it and it will surely not leave you indifferent.
Wine tourism and wine tasting in the Empordà
Speaking of the experiences that can be made in winter in Begur, this is a very good time to take advantage and do a wine tasting in a cellar in Catalonia. The Empordà area has a large group of rural places spread throughout the territory, where people live from wine.
Near the town of Begur there are two incredible vineyards where they work daily with the grapes and their collection and that are part of the wine route through the Empordà. The first one we recommend is Mas Geli, which is about 15 minutes from Begur and near the village of Pals, in the Massos de Pals; the other one is Mas Oller, located in Torrent, about 10 minutes by car from Begur.
Wine tasting, refined experiences and discovering new flavours are some of the reasons why oenophiles tour the territories of the Empordà.
