Petit Futé's opinion on BEGUR CASTLE

Plate millesim 2022

The silhouette of this castle overlooks the village and climbing it will allow you to access a viewpoint with a view of the entire center of the Empordà

It's her silhouette that overlooks the village. Climbing up to it will give you access to a magnificent viewpoint over the whole of the centre of the Ampurdan and the Catalan coast. Logically built in the 11th century on one of the highest mountains in Begur by Arnust de Begur, it served as a strategic fortress with unbeatable views. It has a very eventful history, marked by three destructions: the Catalan Civil War in 1468, the French incursion by the Duke of Noailles in 1694 and the War of Independence against the French in 1810. Today, only the foundations remain, partly renovated in the 20th century. The walk from the village to the summit will take half an hour, but you can already stop at the Plaça Sant Ramon, where an explanatory table will inform you about the different points you can see. And in the end, this is the highlight of the show, a view that goes from the Pyrenees with the peak of Canigó, perhaps snow-covered, contrasting with the azure of the sea, the viewpoint of the Emporda, the Medes islands and on the other side, the Formigues islands, 16 islets between Plafrugell and Palamós. One of the most beautiful viewpoints you should not miss.

The mountains of Begur. They are an extension of the Gavarres massif on the coast where they end up in small hills, falling into the sea and forming steep cliffs. Populated by oaks, heather and especially white pines on the coast, you can meet squirrels and foxes and observe kinglets or anteater torcols.

Pour monter au chateau ,il faut emprunter les jolies rues de Bégur avec de très belles maisons construites par des espagnols revenus riches de Cuba. A l'arrivée au chateau la vue est saisissante ,vue sur Bégur ,sur le Cap Bégur et sur la Méditèrannée .
