About the tour
What attracted pirates, writers, knights, artists and many more, and now attracts so many visitors? Join our Free Tour of Pals and discover this impressive medieval town!
We start the tour at Plaça Major, with an introduction to the origins and history of the town and of the region: the Empordanet. We will then enter the Old Town, crossing one of the portals of the old walls.
As we go upwards, we will go into the past of this town, and we will pay attention to important details in windows and doors that would otherwise go unnoticed, until we reach the Church of Saint Peter . Do you know how they used to sharpen knives?
We will continue the Free Tour Pals in the direction of the Tower of the Hours, the most important in town: we will explain its function and enjoy some wonderful views before continuing north and crossing the walls to enter the Josep Pla viewpoint.
Once again we will be amazed by the views before starting to return around the walls, crossing them again and passing through streets with obscure names until reaching the starting point, where the visit will end.
