How to arrive
There are many options:
One could be arrive to Barcelona and take the bus in North Station with destination to Port de la Selva
Other, take the train to Figueres and a bus there to your destination
rent a car in barcelona airport or sants Station and first of all take the 'rondes' to go out of Barcelona and follow direction france and Girona until Figueres. Where you must leave the motorway and follow direction Llança, the town next to Port de la Selva
Salvador Dali owned a house in Cadaqués. This is where he lived for most of the times.
It was a pity that I didn't have time to visit it. I heard that he used to add something new to his house, whenever he felt that he has changed. So I guess the house must be full of interesting things...
The small streets characterize Cadaqués. There is a certain charm about them.
I thought they were really cute.
At one point, you will arrive in a spot where you can see the town from above. Beautiful view on the sea and the boats.
A beautiful beach next to Port de la Selva, nudist and no-nudist too!
Port de la Selva has gorgeous and narrow street, with white houses in a excellent bay that comes from Llança or from Roses and on the top of the mountain road to left hand leaving road to Cadaques to right side
Sant Pere de Rodes
Intersting romanic church placed on the top of the mountain over Llança and Port de la Selva.
To arrive there you must arrive before to a small town named La Vall de Sta Creu
Cap de Creus
Its a nature reserve park ever since 1998 including Port de la Selva town.
i suggest go to the end of the road, until the lighthouse eastern in Spain.. their landscape is incredible and exceptional for shoot with your photo cameras
You arrive from Cadaques and before you enter in the town, turn to left hand, direction Port-Lligat where is the Dali's Museum-House .. then follow the road to Natural Reserve of Cap de Creus
EL PORT DE LA SELVA
Is a small village situated in the Costa Brava in Catalonia Spain. Its a beautifull place for enjoy the summer, clean beaches, and calm.
To arrive there its easy. The higher city near from El Port de la Selva is Figueres (15-20 Km) aproximately by road).
There are a gas station for your car, pharmacy, a little hospital... in conclusion there are a lot of services for you.
I advise 'Cala Tamariua' is a small beach situated to 5 minutes by car and 15 on food.Its a nudist beach if you want, because there are people with and without swimsuit.
There was a fire in the mountains over it the town and the grassland wasn't like before, but the good places like that always are beautiful
So i recommend this town for hollydays. even if you have a boat its the best because a few miles of there are 'EL Cap de Creus' a fantastic place that separate the Lion Gulf from the Costa Brava. With a terrible wind you can accede to this area from Cadaques another place that i write for us in the next days (with photos of course).
All the road has indicators for arrive whithout lose you. Its better if you go in the afternoon ( for the light of the sunrise, for take photos). From el Port de la Selva you can arrive too by means of a earth way of 15 km. this way starts in the same road that drives to cala Tamariua. Its easy to find it.For this way you can arrive to another 'Calas' (small beaches).
If you want more information about the town i recommend the next web adress:
Port de la Selva
Also there are information in the village. tourist agency information beside the waterfront.
good luck and enjoy
If you are at Cadaqués, don't miss Port Lligat. It just takes 15 minutes walking.
There is the house-museum of Salvador Dalí.
We somehow did not manage to have enough time to visit Salvador Dali's home--Port LLigat. It was definitely a sight even from afar. The layers and eggs on top made it a very Dali kind of place.
All the north coast of Catalonia has a beatiful beaches... (with rocks not sand!!!! ) the water always transparent... so relaxx!
Nice and small town with a big beach in the other side of the mountain of Cadaques, also in Cap de Creus.
