    An exceptional protected location

    We suggest you start the day by discovering the Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter Natural Park. The park has 17 walking or bicycle itineraries with a wide variety of natural and cultural landscapes. The climb to the castle of Montrgí, for example, offers an exceptional viewpoint overlooking the park in the setting of the Empordà. From here, you have a 360 degree view of the plain and the bays of the Alt and Baix Empordà.

    To find out about the park and its routes, you can head for the information centre at the Museum of the Mediterranean as well as the tourist information offices of l’Estartit and Torroella de Montgrí. There you will find ideas for discovering all of the natural spaces.

    A town with class

    We suggest starting the afternoon with a stroll around the centre of Torroella de Montgrí. The main streets are Carrer d’Ullà, Carrer de Primitiu Artigas, Carrer Major and Carrer de l’Església. All four of these streets lead to Plaça de la Vila, the obligatory starting point for anyone visiting this town for the first time. If you come on a Monday, you will find the weekly market, which has a long tradition.

    A walk around Torroella is also a journey through time. The remains of the walled Torroella, the gate of Santa Caterina (C. 11–13), the Bruixes tower (C.15–16); the Gothic church of Sant Genís (C. 14–19) and the castle of Montgrí (C. 13), which are two jewels of the municipality; the Casa Pastors and Casa del Metge from the 16–17 centuries on Carrer Major and to finish with a last special touch, the colonial houses built by the americanos, people who emigrated to the Americas and returned home after making their fortune, and which now also form part of this architectural archive.
