Overview

The Empordà (Costa Brava) area is full of interesting places that you may like to discover.Obviously you have heard about Dalí; his museum in Figueres, his house in Port-Lligat (Cadaqués) and probably the castle that he bought for his wife in Púbol, what is called the Dalí’s triangle.Maybe you know about some of its medieval villages like Pals or Peratallada, or some of its Romanesque temples like the ones of Sant Pere de Rodes or the one in Vilabertran.But this is not all you can enjoy in the area.From the early past to the present history there is plenty to see.You may like to visit a bunker built by the Republicans during the Spanish Civil War, or discover the village that became the capital of Spain when Madrid and later on Valencia were besieged by the National troops.What about visiting some of its unknown Romanesque temples, enjoying beautiful frescoes from the 12th C. or early tiny chapels used as stables for decades, even a chapel with Masonic symbols.Also walk into an abandoned ancient quarry that for many centuries provided stone to different cultures to build their towns and temples.And visit an urban castle used as a prison until 1965.Enter the remains of the house of Dalí’s father, walk through the village that shelters stories of the only vampire in the country, discover the repellents against witches that have been protecting houses and stables for centuries. An endless list of interesting places and stories which are right here in the Empordà area.Hope you enjoy the stay.

Another superlative 3-day tour experience with Nik filled with a mixture of history, culture, natural parks, and a few unexpected “hidden gems.” Nik approaches it all with a sense of wonder that is infectious and enjoys the moments of serendipity as much as I do....More

Ok, we really clicked with Nick. He was an excellent guide, without his expert guidance, explanations and interesting anecdotes about Dali and his art and his wife Dala, it would have never been the same. I highly recommend you hire him for this museum visit....More

Nik positively made Peratallada come alive in a way that would be impossible to understand on one's own. He is one of the best walking tour guides I've used across Europe. I highly recommend him. He speaks superb English.
