Cap de Creus Nature Park
The Cap de Creus Peninsula is a unique area between land and sea, beaten by the “Tramuntana” winds that have left their trace in the form of unique rock erosion and vegetation, that offers a unique landscape of breathtaking beauty. Its rugged coastline with high cliffs and beautiful crystalline coves offer great possibilities for excursionists.
Parc natural Montgrí i Illes Medes
This park consists of three very distinct areas: the “Medes” Islands, The “Montgrí” Mountain and the wetlands of the river “Ter”. The Medes archipielago is one of Catalunya’s most important marine reserves, protected since 1983. It is the marine extension of the Montgrí Mountain. The Saint Catherine hermitage is located at the heart of the Montgrí. The top of the mountain is crowned by the mighty, though unfinished 14th century “Castell de Montgrí”.
