L’Escala, as a seafaring town, has a particular attraction both by sea and by land.
We suggest you do not miss the sunrise or sunset from the Torre de Montgó. Tower built in the 16th century to defend the town from piracy attacks and protect fishermen. it is currently a privileged place to enjoy a bird’s eye view of the Bay of Roses.
From Torre Montgó and passing through the protected area of the plains area, you can enjoy a walk along the cliff coast and with access to different coves. It is an ideal place to stop for snokel.
Continuing the journey we will arrive with Port de la clota where we can enjoy the fishing part with the fleet of boats that go fishing for blue fish and also the nautical club, which offers a wide range of nautical activities to enjoy the Mar d'Empúries.
We will pass by Riells Beach with its walk dedicated to the story of the Little Prince of Saint Exupéry, an ideal walk to discover the story to the little ones in the house where you will find elements of the story, such as the rose, the meteorites, the fox, the Little Prince and the area of the Plaça de l'Univers, where the palm trees are perfectly placed referring to the constellation of the book.
After this section of disconnection you can continue along the promenade of L'Escala which serves as a connection between the area of Riells and the old town where we can enjoy the beach area, full of bars and restaurants ideal to stop and taste the magnificent anchovies and local cuisine.
We will continue the route through the area of the Mar de'n Manassa where we will find a spectacular viewpoint and we will arrive at the cove of the Creu where the huts of old fishermen and the small boats create an image of postcard. An image that will help us to continue the field journey on the Cami de Ronda that passes in front of the natural beaches of Empúries and the only one that passes in front of an archaeological site, that of the Greco-Roman ruins of Empúries. This section is a walk through a unique natural setting that will take us to the medieval village of Sant Martí d’Empúries where we will finish the route.
For those who want they can discover in a completely different way this route by sea, a completely different view of the land and that will transport us through the smell of salt and sea, the past Sailor and fisherman of L'Escala
