The artist Salvador Dalí used to say that Cadaqués was the most beautiful town in the world. Perhaps there are people who question this statement but what cannot be denied is that Cadaqués is one of the most beautiful towns in Catalonia. It is located in the Cap de Creus Natural Park, in the Alt Empordá region.

It survived the tourist boom and resisted massive construction in such a way that it was able to preserve its endearing and reserved essence. The reason may be because it is still difficult to get there, although once there, the experience is unforgettable. The truth is that we could expand on the reasons to visit Cadaqués but the best thing is to show it. You will not be able to resist visiting it!

Where is Cadaqués?

The pearl of the Costa Brava is located in the province of Gerona. As we said, getting to it is not an easy thing, especially for those who tend to get dizzy when traveling by car since there are almost 15 kilometers of zigzagging road to get to the town. Once here, the best way to get to know this place is by starting the route through the parish church of Santa María.
