Castelló d'Empúries, an insider trip to Costa Brava

Costa Brava is one of the strongest tourist destinations on the Mediterranean coast and in particular, Catalonia. This region combines the majesty of the Mediterranean Sea with the charm of its landscapes. It is an authentic fusion of different sceneries that gives us fascinating enclaves such as Castelló d'Empúries, a peaceful town with a superb natural and cultural heritage. Let's find out more about this destination and the interest in selling or buying a house in Castelló d Empuries.

A privileged location

 Castelló d'Empúries is located north of Girona province, in the Alto Ampurdán region (Alt Empordà is its official name in Catalan). The municipality is divided between Castelló d'Empúries itself and the population of Empuriabrava, known as the 'Catalan Venice' because it is located next to the Marismas del Empordà Natural Park. The waters in this place are of great ecological value and run through the authentic streets of Empuriabrava as they constitute the most important inhabited marina in Europe. All this in the Gulf of Roses, which boasts an exceptional view towards the Mediterranean and all the more reason to sell a house in Castelló d Empuries.

A vast history

 The origins of Castelló d'Empúries date back to the Marca Hispanica era when the name of the town was first mentioned in the 9th century. Since the 11th century, the history of the municipality has moved forward quickly. This is something that can be seen in the wide variety of historical monuments that have been built in the following centuries: the Church of Santa Maria, the Convent of Santa Clara, the Lonja or the Curia and the prison. The medieval heritage is, therefore, highly regarded by its people and remains one of its main tourism strengths. Our real estate agency in Castelló d Empuries knows how to commercially exploit this charm.

An active municipality

 The Girona population can boast of being especially active in organising all kinds of events. By taking advantage of the environment, outdoor activities have multiplied in recent years, with the Racing Cross circuit and the Pitch & Putt track as examples. In this town's streets, it is possible to enjoy festivals such as Tierra de Trovadores, one of the most important folkloric competitions in the province. The book presentations and cultural events are the other regular activities in the municipality.
