Some of the best walks in the Begur area follow the coastal paths and their coves. These “camins de ronda” follow the coastline and have had various functions throughout history. [They provided access to the coves during shipwrecks, were used to watch the horizon in case of pirate attacks, and even for smuggling after the Civil War. These days you can walk along them, enjoy the coastal scenery and visit hidden coves that were the scene of everyday events in years gone by.] In and around Begur these paths are divided into 3 different sections – the North Path, the East Path and the South Path – and join various coves and beaches.

Both Alt and Baix Empordà have preserved their mediaeval past with pride: when you walk around the stone houses and cobbled streets, noblemen’s castles and walled towns, the only things missing for a 100% mediaeval experience are banners and the sound of the harp. Pals, Peratallada, Torroella de Montgrí and Monells all epitomise the Empordà’s medieval past.
