This charming little town is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful in Catalonia, the perfect spot if you’re looking to switch off and enjoy some peace and quiet. It’s also ideal for visiting from Barcelona, as it’s in a well-connected location on the Costa Brava. With a privileged position within the Cabo de Creus National Park, pure nature lives and breathes everywhere you turn. Cadaqués also stands out for its fantastic culinary scene, as well as the wide variety of outdoor sports you can try your hand at when you’re in town. Sound good?

Amposta: Tourist towns near Barcelona

This town in the province of Tarragona can be found on the banks of the delightful River Ebro. Visiting Amposta, you’ll be able to stroll through some truly magical places, like the famous suspension bridge and the wonderful old town. There are plenty of options for all tastes, like urban exploring for those who want to see the town and its beautiful buildings, as well as more rural and back-to-nature options, such as a visit to the nature park that surrounds the town, Els Ports Nature Park.

Figueres

Perfect if you like to combine history and nature. A town that simply emanates culture as the birthplace of Salvador Dalí, here, you’ll be able to enjoy exploring the Dalí Theatre and Museum. As a natural and rural destination, the town is surrounded by three national parks and within easy reaching distance of the Pyrenees. Here, you’ll find history around every corner, where you can step into the world of Salvador Dalí and all its secrets. You’re sure to love the Mediterranean food and drink on offer, as well, which is certain to leave you in love with this beautiful town.

Berga

Berga is one of the most popular tourist towns in the Barcelona province, situated in a natural enclave at the foothills of Pedraforca Mountain, one of the most emblematic mountains in Catalonia. The urban centre dates back to the 12th century, when the city walls were first constructed, and their remains can still be seen throughout the town to this day. Numerous wars and conflicts have scarred the town over the years, and most of what you see today was only recovered towards the end of the 19th and 20th centuries. The old quarter is the perfect living museum to explore for all its history and architecture.

Rosas

Rosas is a town situated in Girona with more than 20,000 inhabitants, nestled in the heart of the Costa Brava. Founded by the Greeks who brought civilisation to the region, it’s thanks to them we can explore this fantastic monumental heritage to our collective past. Castillo de la Trinidad is a great landmark to visit, and the local food and drink is second to none, along with the local wine, which is a world-famous protected export.

At HCC Hotels, we encourage all our guests to get to know Barcelona and the surrounding region. Thanks to the beautiful scenery and landscapes, the people, the culture and our amazing sites of historical significance, our neighbouring towns are so full of charm and magic you’ll want to come back year after year to see them all.
