Palamós is a town of almost 17,813 inhabitants, with a great seagoing tradition and busy harbour activity. The arrival of the fishing boats in the harbour and the fish auction is a spectacle you must not miss. The Fishing Museum illustrates the history and the life of the families who live off the sea.

The historical centre of Palamós occupies a peninsula that juts into the sea, crowned by the late Gothic church of Santa Maria. The centre is criss-crossed by steeply-sloping narrow streets which are now home to an active commercial life. Palamós has an extensive tourist infrastructure: hotels, hostels, restaurants, bars, sailing clubs, a theatre-auditorium, and so on, making it the ideal centre for visiting the beautiful coves of the municipality and the Gavarres hills with their rich historical and cultural heritage.

To the north of the town lie beaches and coves of great beauty, like Castell Beach with the Iberian settlement of Castell, situated in a privileged spot.

The town’s most important festivity is its Carnival, which turns the town into a focal point of celebrations for several days.

The Town Council organises a large number of activities including guided visits to the town itself and other points of the municipal district.
