A taste of Catalonia, PALS A day of culinary artwork

Pals is a medieval town in Catalonia, a few kilometres from the sea,  in the heart of the Bay of Emporda on the Costa Brava. It has a historic centre on a hill surrounded by plains with an ancient Romanesque tower.  The Gothic Quarter of the town has been restored and there are cobbled streets interrupted by semicircular arches, façades with pointed arched windows and stone balconies. In this town from the 12th century you will participate, with a chef,  on the creation of a great homemade paella and some other seafood dishes from the area.

 After strolling through this medieval village, it will be time for your gourmet cooking lesson at a modern cooking school, where you will learn all the secrets of traditional seafood paella. You will have the opportunity to participate in the chef’s preparations, or if you prefer, you can sit back, sip your wine, and enjoy his artful work. You will appreciate the personalized attention of our chef and a sumptuous 3-course lunch. Perhaps you will have fine red prawns from Palamós with a distinct flavor, and fresh lobster from Mallorca as starters to your paella. The meal will end with the delicious Catalan crème.

After lunch, you will visit the most chic of the coastal towns in Costa Brava, Calella and Llafranc. You will drink in the breathtaking views afforded from these Mediterranean seaside towns. Starting first at a lighthouse, near to a quaint seaside inn with a sunny outdoor terrace, you will enjoy an aperitif, the view, and breeze of the sea. There are plenty of scenic walks to explore the area as well as picturesque ocean front spots to see. After the view from the lighthouse, you will go down to the sandy beaches, sun-drenched seaside storefronts, and inviting walkways for an afternoon of Mediterranean living. Your guide will share several suggestions of the best terraces to visit for a drink and can direct you to the best of the local shopping as well. After an afternoon of authentic cuisine and exploring the coast and depending on your schedule, you will transfer back to Barcelona.
