Calonge

Travel Guide
Calonge

Discover a medieval village with prehistoric remains and a lively resort town on Gerona's famous Costa Brava, in Catalonia.

Calonge was already a summer tourist destination in Roman times, although its importance also lay in its foundry and import business. A getaway to Calonge will allow you to discover historical monuments, such as the medieval castle of Calonge, one of the largest in the region, and walk through its gardens.

To know the true essence of a place, the best option is to walk through its historic centre. We recommend you start with the Plaza Mayor. Here you can have a drink at a terrace cafe while you contemplate the ancient details of the buildings that surround it and the castle that presides over everything. The plaza is also the start of Calle Mayor, a cobblestone road full of all kinds of shops. A few steps away is also the pretty Sant Martí Church, declared a Site of Cultural Interest.

With our cheap getaways to Calonge, you won't have any excuse not to explore the Baix Empordà region. On the outskirts of the town you can visit interesting places such as the Roman villa of Collet, a centre for wine exports in times past. To the west are the remains of the Iberian settlement of Castellbarri, dominated by a medieval tower and the castle of Cabanyes, a well restored manor house. Even older are the Dolmen de Puigsesforques and the Menhir de Can Mont.

When you feel like relaxing by the sea, go to the town's magnificent beaches, such as Torre Valentina, Sant Antoni and Es Monestri. You will only need a swimsuit and a towel in order to spend a few truly magical days. On the seafront you will also find a wide range of shops and entertainment for the whole family. You are bound to have a really great time.

With our holiday packages in Calonge you can fly to Gerona or go by train and, from there, by bus to Calonge. If you prefer, rent one of our vehicles to travel in greater comfort and at your own pace.
