The pearl of the costa brava

Located in Cap de Creus National Park, Cadaqués is a small town that is protected and hidden from the rest of Alt Empordà. It has the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the Pení Mountain on the other side. It is a place that started out as a fishing town and it now survives thanks to tourism. Its beaches, its small coves, narrow streets, the old part of town, the “rastell”, the white houses with blue windows…its tranquility, the breeze, the sea…What makes Cadaqués so special? It might be the place itself, or the hotel where you decided to stay in, or the beauty of the Cap de Creus. Sublime and incomparable.

Whatever it is, it’s clear that many people have known how to appreciate it. Cadaqués has been the home of many important artists, such as Pablo Picasso, Federico García Lorca, Luis Buñuel, Marcel Duchamp, Josep Pla, Magritte and, of course, Salvador Dalí, among others. They were also captured by Cadaqués. I think no one is able to resist its peace and light.

You can have a great day in town. You can stroll on the historic part of town, where each street could belong to an amazing painting. You can visit the church of Santa María de Cadaqués, built in the 16th and 17th centuries. Or you can go into de Cadaqués Museum that offers temporal exhibits related to the town. Other important places: Casa Serinyana, the beach or the Sant Badliri chapel from the 18th century.

When you visit Cadaqués, what will make you fall in love with it?

Bohemian air in a sea town

Cadaqués is a bright white spot between the sky and the blue sea. The church of Santa María is also white, although it is trimmed with cypress trees. That is what Cadaqués looks like from the small beach where various colorful boats rest. Despite de tourism that has come to this place since the sixties, following Dalí and the beauty of the place, the ancient fishermen town is still small and accessible.

In its narrow streets, mixed with the bohemian air of the art galleries, you can still breathe an endearing sea flavor. It is full of bars that look towards the port and little restaurants that serve great fish.

Like I said before, to talk about Cadaqués is to talk about Dalí. It was during the summertime he spent here with his family that Dalí –born in Figueres en 1904– started to paint. His rebel and provocative spirit flowered in his youth, growing after meeting Federico García Lorca and Luis Buñuel. However, it wasn’t until he met exotic Gala that a real revolution exploded in his life. His father, scandalized by his son’s relationship disowned him and managed that the hotels in Cadaqués denied him accommodation. This is why Dalí and Gala moved to a small and rustic cabin in Portlligat, a remote place that would become the center of their special universe.
