Places of interest


PHOTO: Dalí’s hut

Cala Estreta

Forming part of the Space of Natural Interest, this beach is 200 m long by 15 m wide and is regarded as an especially beautiful spot on the Costa Brava. This sandy beach has shallow water and a mixed seabed of sand and rock. It can be accessed on the Castell beach trail.

Dalí’s hut

A small stone hut located in the woods, above the Castell beach. When Alberto Puig Palau acquired Mas Juny and its land in 1940 and had the manor house that bears his name built, he wanted to have his friend Salvador Dalí nearby. Therefore, he built a cabin-studio in an isolated spot so that the painter could work there. Dalí went there on several occasions but there is no record of him using it as a workshop. This stone structure’s distinctive sloping door was inspired by a watercolour by Dalí from 1948.

The Iberian settlement of Castell

Built in the 6th century BC, this was an important site on the trading routes that developed around the Greek city of Empúries. Its location on a small peninsula gave its inhabitants a high degree of control of the territory. This forms part of the Catalan Museum of Archaeology’s Route of the Iberians and is classed as an asset of national interest.
