Castelló d'Empúries : Michelin's recommendations
This historic small town, located on a headland near the sea in the heart of the Ampurdan region, has retained a maze of old narrow streets and an impressive array of monuments which testify to its medieval role as capital of the county of Ampurias from the 11C to the 14C. Away from the hustle and bustle of the Costa Brava, the village lies near the Aigüamollis de l’Empordà natural park, Catalonia’s second largest marshland after the Èbre delta.
