A great place to just take a stroll.
Amid the marshy zone where the Ter flows into the sea, is the medieval village of Pals. The old quarter, known as El Pedro, contains many historic buildings: walls with towers, an old castle or Torre de les Hores, a Gothic church, and a monumental cross commanding a fine panorama.

As well as views of the coastline and mountains, Pals has cobbled streets and ancient village walls and archways. Stroll through and explore the narrow streets which house a variety of restaurants and trinket shops selling everything from ceramics to jewelry. You’ll be charmed with Pals narrow pathways, stone houses, and flower boxes overflowing with color.

The countryside is dotted with handsome farmhouses. There is a Club de Golf Pals, considered one of the best in Spain. A small museum of underwater archeological finds and a magnificent sandy beach at the mouth of the Ter.

Loved Pals
We were in Pals for a short time with some friends, while there I was able to buy some of the ceramic pottery. I would love to purchase some other pieces, any idea how I might be able to buy via the internet? We loved Pals and the Coasta Brava and are looking forward to our next visit.
