No wonder more and more airport travellers are checking the routes to the cute, quaint medieval town of Begur. A spectacular 12th-century castle dominates this hill settlement in Costa Brava. Serpentine roads leading to the old town that seems to have been lost in time are dotted with ancient towers, secret alleyways and fishermen's huts. Spanish holidaymakers can best get there by travelling from a host of southern English airports to Barcelona International Airport.

There are four daily direct return connections from this airport to Begur. Tranquil relaxation spots await you on your arrival to the town and all the surrounding Costa Brava areas. These include the whitewashed houses of surrealist master Salvador Dali’s beloved town of Cadaqués, to the 575 BC ruins of the Greco-Roman town of Empúries, to historic coastal villages such as Pals and Peralada.

Costa Brava, with its Mediterranean gastronomy, prides itself on its fine cuisine, with fresh seafood and olive oil. Local restaurants pay the same attention to detail as fine-dining establishments. Tales of great-grandmother’s expert recipes or the contested origins of traditional dishes abound here. Superb scuba-diving and kayaking opportunities are provided in the crystal-clear water around the uninhabited Medes Islands. Cyclists journeying from village to village can enjoy particularly gorgeous pink and blue skies at dusk along paved over the Vias Verdes (“Green Ways”) Project's former train tracks.
