The medieval hilltop village of Begur is a gem. Located just under two hours north of Barcelona, it is crowned by a thousand year old castle offering magnificent vistas of the Mediterranean and has the most amazing winding streets with houses and trees clinging to the cliffs.
The old town is a walker's dream. It is like walking back in time. Taking little side streets you come across ancient houses, churches, little markets and bakeries. The main square is the heart of the action with people enjoying the outdoor cafes, live Catalonian music and the sights, sounds and wonderful smells that make this corner of Spain so special.
