Castelló d’Empúries

The history books refer to Castelló d’Empúries as the mediaeval capital of a county that experienced a long golden age. The town’s mediaeval past remains evident in many of its streets and in buildings such as the basilica of Santa Maria, the Palace of the Counts or the Llotja (sea exchange building). But this mediaeval character really comes to the fore during the Festival Terra de Trobadors (Land of Troubadours), featuring period music, jousting, a mediaeval market and many other activities. On top of all this history, the town also boasts plenty of scenic attractions, with the Empordà wetlands as a backdrop, so you’ve got plenty of reasons to explore it.
