Pals Free Tour
Pals Free Tour
Relive centuries and centuries of wonderfully preserved history on top of a hill, with incredible views all around, in the heart of the Costa Brava.
Duration: 1,5 hours
We start the tour at Ca la Pruna, with an introduction to the origins and history of the town and of the region: the Empordanet. Shortly after we will get to the Plaça Major, and we will then enter the Old Town, crossing one of the gates of the old walls.
As we go upwards, we will go into the past of this town, and we will pay attention to important details in windows and doors that would otherwise go unnoticed, until we reach the Church of Saint Peter . Do you know how they used to sharpen knives?
We will continue the Free Tour Pals in the direction of the Tower of the Hours, the most important in town: we will explain its function and enjoy some wonderful views before continuing north and crossing the walls to enter the Josep Pla Viewpoint , where we will finish the tour amazed with the views over the plains and the sea.
