We traveled by car, and because the boot is on the small side, we packed our clothes in vacuum seal able bag's. Taking the air out of the bags give you more room, suit cases can be bulky and they take up a lot of room. Take plenty of suntan lotion and insect repelant, moscito plug ins's are a good idea.
You will find this ancient Village, in the Catalan region of Spain, in, an area known as Emporda.
The Roman walled village of Pals ,with it's stone houses built around a 15 th century Castle, was abandon after the Spanish Civil War in 1939, and, almost fell into ruin's. That was until the people of Barcelona moved in and restored the house's to use as second homes. Set on a hillside overlooking the the beautiful Catalan countryside, it is a very poplar place to visit, so early morning or evenings is a good time to stroll through the cobbled street's, take your time as you wonder and take in the beauty of this beautiful small place.
Park in the new town at the bottom of the hill, then slowly make your way up into the tiny busy square, with it's cafe, bar's, restaurant's, ice cream, craft and gift shop's. Carry on through the arch and up to the old tower and church that dominates the hill, take in the view's around this lovely old place.
The road up is a slow climb on a cobbled surface, there are a few step's that can be avoided if you have walking difficulties.
