What to see and do in the Empordà and on the Costa Brava

Hotel Can Xiquet is in the easternmost part of the Pyrenees, next to the Mediterranean, halfway between the mountains and the beaches of the Costa Brava. Nearby there are a whole host of activities you can enjoy out-of-doors, such as excursions, bicycle touring, horse riding, golf and scuba-diving.

You can also visit charming villages or important towns such as Girona, Figueres and Cadaqués. For those of you who love the sea, there are areas of great natural wealth and beauty, such as the Cap de Creus, the Aiguamolls de l'Empordà (wetlands) and the beaches and bays of the Costa Brava. If you prefer to explore inland, there are the luxuriant forests and mountains of the Catalan Pyrenees, dotted with samples of Romanesque art or remains of the extremely valuable cultural heritage from the Middle Ages.
