Intriguing Cadaqués

Artistry, Nature, Tramontana and Sea

 

Cadaqués is a small village in the North East of Spain at the so called Costa Brava.

Brava stands for wild. And you can say that again. The place is famous, or infamous if you like, for its fierce Tramontana. A wind that comes from the Northwest and can blow for days and even weeks through the small streets of Cadaqués.
The village is one of the most intriguing villages I know in Spain.

Its heritage of free spirited artists creating and living the artistic hedonistic life. The Tramonta which relentlessly can blow away all the trees and leave them lifeless. The fine mediterean architecture which is still intact and its special inhabitants who lived here and withstand the elements of nature. Cap de Creus its capricious stunning nature park where the sea fights with the yellow stoned cliffs. It all gives the village a kind of magic feel.

You can stroll around the narrow cobble streets, shop, wine, dine and party the whole night long. Hike for days in the surrounding nature, visit de Dali mueseum and enjoy the gastronomy.

Cadaqués is a place you just have to visit.
