Excursions and Local Attractions

The region offer possibilities of excursions for all tastes. From a peaceful half hour walk from Cabanes to Peralada to buy local and foreign newspapers and have coffee with magnificent pastries in the Cafeteria del Castell; visiting the well-restored Saint Peter of Rhodes Monastery up in the mountains; or the stunning Parks and Protected Natural Spaces of Catalonia which offer such a wide range that every visitor, adventure-seeker, and nature-lover alike is bound to find something to his or her liking. Where else can you see Greek and a Roman coastal trading centers in a single, easily accessible archaeological site, visit a museum, and then bathe at a sandy beach on the Mediterranean for a cost of less than three euros? And the city of Besalú, the birthplace of the medieval troubadour Romain Vidal is just 40 km. from Cabanes. This gem of a village, with only 2200 inhabitants, was recently declared as World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The church of the village dates back to 1003.
