This area has so much to offer ! A must is Castell Gala Dali on the road to Gerona just after La Bisbal. This is the castle that Dali bought and developed for his wife. A fascinating place, it was decorated by Dali and has his magic touch. You can also have a traditional Catalan meal at Can Bosch, the village restaurant. The village itself is very pretty. The Dali museum at Figueres (about an hour) should not be missed and there are some lovely medieval towns to visit. E.g. The old walled village of Pals was restored after the civil war by a local doctor. It has won an architectural award. Go early or late in the day to appreciate its old buildings, walls and clock tower. Peratallada, another moated village with cobbled streets, antique shops, art galleries and good Catalan restaurants. La Bisbal, there are dozens of pottery shops here selling local Spanish pottery and is well worth a visit. It takes about 20 mins to get there.Gerona is a wonderful old city with incredible buildings. It is a 40 minute drive and is well worth it.
