An area with many stories to tell
The surroundings of L’Escala hide intimate and unique corners that we recommend to discover during your visit. One of these charming places in l’Escala are the Ruins of Empúries, a construction that dates back to the Greco-Roman era in which you can contemplate the whole history of the region in those years.
This area is an authentic weakness for sea lovers, since it has 12 beaches and coves. All easily accessible and where you will find all the amenities to enjoy a pleasant day at the beach.
Water sports tourism
If what you are looking for is to spend a day full of water activities … L’Escala is perfect for you! In this area you can practice multiple activities such as sailing, windsurfing, kitesurf, water skiing or canoeing, activities suitable for all members of the family. But if you prefer to spend a day on the mountain, you can also go hiking, cycling or horseback riding.
Multiple cultural activities
Another attraction of this area are the different cultural and musical activities that come together year after year. As for example the l’Escala Classical Concerts, held throughout the year; Som Cultura.
