This site has remained isolated and the natural clarity of its landscape has been preserved by popular will. The Mediterranean in its pure state.
This urban miniature by the sea has been declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest thanks to its scenic value. It was a neighbourhood of fishing huts dating back to the 15th century, which gave shelter to the fishermen as well as their utensils and fishing tackle, and which currently house leisure events.
The castle of Sant Esteve de Mar
This old castle is located on a cliff between Cala s’Alguer and La Fosca beach. It belonged to the parish of Sant Eugenia de Vila-romà. King Peter II the Great purchased it in 1277 and created the port and town of Palamós. It was almost totally demolished during the War of the Remences and was abandoned in the 16th-17th centuries and has been converted into a farmhouse.
