From Cadaqués to Cap de Creus Spain
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover From Cadaqués to Cap de Creus

The exceptional road that runs along the ragged coastline of Costa Brava is the most untouched road there is and connects the village of Cadaqués to the mountains of Cap de Creus. Its departure point is the fishing village that has attracted many celebrities, such as Lorca, Joan Miró, Picasso, Orson Welles, and Dali, the Surrealist artist, whose family owned a summer residence in Cadaqués. During a 4 hour walk, the path will take you through impressive landscapes that plunge into the sea, showing the natural diversity of the Park of Cap de Creus with its sea-battered cliffs, its postcard bays, and its rather peculiar flora. The path is teeming with small creeks that allow you to dip your feet at regular intervals during your walk. You should remember to take goggles and a snorkel along with you for a quick dive. Finally, you'll arrive at the mythical lighthouse of Cap de Creus, the easternmost point of the Iberian peninsula (opposite Fisterra). This is a rather peculiar place throbbing with mystic qualities, the rocky orography of which seems to have been sculpted by Dali himself. This is where Orson Welles shot 'The Light at the Edge of the World'. The lighthouse has a bar with a terrace where evening concerts are regularly held. You can also get there by car following a road that runs through the park. Back in Cadaqués, enjoy a relaxing rest on the beach, or discover the traditions, culinary specialities (in particular, anchovies and fish dishes, but there are all types offerings and restaurants), and local culture. You can visit the old town and the church of Santa María, as well as the Salvador Dalí Museum House. It's not a coincidence that the region has for decades been a haunt favoured by artists and hippies.
