Give it a go!2.Visit the castle
Begur Castle is the main symbol of the municipality and it is also one of the best viewpoints of the Costa Brava with sweeping views of the territory. In 2019, the town celebrated the millenium of the first reference of the castle in a historical document, dated in 1019. After several wars and attacks from French troops throughout the centuries, this military building has undergone several destructions. The battlements were rebuilt and a pedestrian path was open. Later on, in 1964, the famous dancer Carmen Amaya promoted the lighting of the castle, which now glows at night on top of the hill.3. Discover the coastal paths of la Costa Brava
A pleasant walk along the beaches is a nice way to see the natural surroundings but the coastal paths provide a memorable view of this unique coastal landscape, where beaches and coves are linked by marked trails and stairs skirting the shoreline of the entire Costa Brava. In Begur you can enjoy three different parts of the coastal paths. The northern path is a short one hour walk from Sa Riera to Illa Roja and Platja del Racó and back. The estern path takes you from Sa Tuna to Aiguafreda and back and it takes about 45 minutes to complete it. Finally, the southern coastal path starts in Aiguablava and continues to Fornells and Platja Fonda. Going and coming back takes up to 2 hours as it is a bit more demanding and steep. The most adventurous ones can do more sections of the path and continue to the neighbouring Tamariu or go further down to Castell, Palamós, Torre Valentina, Platja d’Aro and S’Agaró.4. Fira dels Indians: an event with Cuban flavour
On the first weekend of September, Begur becomes a vibrant, colourful and lively destination.

During this fair, Begur becomes an outdoor stage with music performances, street shows, a market with traditional crafts and stalls with overseas produce and the traditional Cuban mojitos. The Caribbean rhythms fill in the atmosphere and renowned artists including Lucrecia or La máquina del sabor make the audience dance to it. Salsa, bachata and the best sounds will make you dance to the beat until early morning! The cultural activities during the day include exhibitions, guided tours, conferences, documentaries and sessions to discuss the legacy of these “Americans”. Dress code for the weekend is white outfits and hats. The cobbled streets and the whole town is wrapped in white while the musicians fill your ears with irresistible sounds that will keep you on your toes! Sabor!5. A trip to know the Costa Brava
