Coll de la Ganga

A pass in the Gavarres mountains, between Puig d’Arques (535 m) and Puig de Ribot (327 m), which links the Calonge and Daró valleys. This 5 km-long mountain pass has an average gradient of 4%.

Peratallada castle

The castle, comprising the fortified keep on an enormous base carved with pickaxes, and the palace stand out in the centre of the walled village. The parish church is located outside the walls, in an unpopulated area. The wall that surrounds the castle district forms an enclosed area.

Church of Sant Feliu de Boada

A parish church that features on the Inventory of the Architectural Heritage of Catalonia, and of which there are records from the 11th century as belonging to the monastery of Sant Esteve of Banyoles. The current building, in the late-Gothic style, is later, dating from the 16th century. The sacristy was added during the 17th and 18th centuries.
