Costa Brava: Cadaqués
Fisherman arranging nets in their boats, Coffee, paella and crema catalana awaiting customers in white-washed buildings accented with brilliant blue hues. Children playing in soft waves lapping up on the shore. Painters still at work outside on the street. Feel such visions combine in the unforgettable atmosphere of what was once a haven for Salvador Dali here in Cadaqués.
A beacon of Costa Brava pride, Cadaqués is often seen as having everything that is good about Catalonia’s coastline—the art, the views, weather, fresh seafood, architectural aesthetic and relaxed residents. At one side of Cadaqués in Port Lligat is Dali’s house (open to reserved tours) and on the other is Roses, home to what is often regarded as the best and most exclusive restaurant in the world, El Bulli, with its world-famous Spanish chef, Ferran Adriá. Some say it is the area’s tramontana winds, which carry a higher than average level of oxygen, that has inspired so artists, which have also included Picasso and Walt Disney, to frequent the area.
Despite years of popularity, the area has preserved its original look and culture successfully and is a Mediterranean treasure not to be missed.We invite you to experience this piece of heaven with us on our Romantic Spain Luxury Tour
