The fishing village of Cadaques, located at the eastern end of the peninsula of Cape Creus, is one of the best tourist destinations on the Costa Brava. Virtually isolated by mountains from the rest of the Alt Empordà comarque, Cadaques grown from a modest village to become in the 19th and 20th centuries a place of inspiration and residence for intellectuals and artists from around the world.
Cadaqués is the most eastern settlement in the Iberian peninsula.


The old town, formed by labyrinthine streets paved with stones removed from the seashore, is dominated by the late Gothic church of Santa Maria, with the facade painted white. From here there is a beautiful view of the town and bay. From the medieval walls only an ancient bastion integrated in the town hall building is preserved today.
In the center of the town and in front of the promenade they can be admired several modernist buildings, some inspired by Cuban architecture, as Casa Serinyana, Casa Rahola, Torre del Colom, the old theater and the Amistat Casino.


Looking to the northeast of the village of Cadaqués we found Portlligat,a tiny Mediterranean village known internationally for being the place where Salvador Dalí lived for a long time. Located in the small Portlligat bay, the village has a single street flanked by typical fishermen's shacks, one being the house-Museum Dalí.
