Guide to the Municipalities

Limited in the north by the cape of Creus and the cape of Norfeu in the south, Cadaqués is one of the most emblematic locations of the landscape and of the fishing tradition of the Costa Brava. The town, white and plain, is located in the middle of the bay of the same name.

Close to prominent spaces such as Portlligat or the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, its profile is dotted with many coves where you can enjoy the unbeatable quality of the waters of the Costa Brava.

In turn, the inside boasts fascinating architecture, combining medieval remains of the old town with moving modernist features such as la Casa Serinyana.

During the second half of the 20t century, Cadaqués filled with artists and bohemians. The most well-known were the couple formed by the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí and his wife, Gala. But what can more clearly bring us closer to the spirit of Cadaqués is the pen of the great writer from Empordá, Josep Pla.

Economic activity

As a place that has traditionally attracted artists and intellectuals, the municipality's current economy is primarily driven by tourism and service companies, especially in relation to the Cap de Creus Natural Park. The area's rough terrain limits its agricultural activity (olive trees and vineyards). Fishing is on the decline.
