Girona and its Jewish quarter
27 km from the hotel. Girona is a charming city. A stroll around its beautiful historic quarter, discovering its cobbled streets, crossing the bridges over the Onyar river, following the path of the wall or entering the cathedral up its baroque stairway make the visit a fascinating day.
It also boasts the best preserved medieval Jewish quarter in Europe. The hotel is just 20 minutes from the city and, if you have time, we recommend a visit. It’s certain to win your heart.
100 km from the hotel. If you’ve never been, we guarantee it will sweep you off your feet. History, design, Mediterranean, cuisine, and a beautifully powerful architecture that is greatly influenced by modernism, with Gaudí at the forefront. A visit to works such as the Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera or Park Güell are a must.
It’s also a real luxury to stroll along the promenade, sunbathe on its beaches, and lose yourself in the historic quarter or around the small squares in the Gracia district.
And of course, having tapas in La Barceloneta district, going shopping on Passeig de Gràcia where you can find the best brands in the world, or discovering the magical forests of Collserola Natural Park or Montjuïc.
It is impossible to visit Barcelona in just one day, but perhaps this is one of its charms. And a piece of advice: never stop looking as you stroll through its streets, as you’ll discover thousands of fascinating details in the most unexpected places.
75 km from the hotel. Born in Figueres (Girona), Salvador Dalí was famous for being very eccentric and gave a new perspective to surrealism to become the most famous artist of his genre worldwide.
This route runs through the province of Girona and the Costa Brava from three unique places: the Dalí Museum Theatre (Figueres), one of the most popular museums in Catalonia; the Museum-House in Portlligat (Cadaqués), a small fisherman’s house where the artist lived and painted for years, and Gala Dalí castle in Póbul (La Pera), a medieval castle that Dalí gave to Gala, his wife and muse. Three incredible places to discover the life and work of the unique Dalí.
Carmen Thyssen Space
Just 10 km from the hotel. Combine your stay at Natura Suites with a good art exhibition next to the sea. The Carmen Thyssen Space is a benchmark on the Costa Brava and is located in the famous monastery of the coastal town of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, only a few metres from the beach.
In the museum, you can enjoy temporary exhibitions by leading major artists from June to October, as well as works from the private collection of Baroness Carmen Thyssen-Bornemisza, such as Vincent van Gogh, Gauguin, Kandinsky, Matisse, Jan Josephzs van Goye, Camille Pissarro and the Catalan artist Ramon Martí Alsina.
The new museum is planned to open in 2020, which will also house a permanent collection of Catalan paintings.
96 km from the hotel. Cadaqués is a small town full of emotions, considered by many to be the pearl of the Costa Brava and one of the prettiest in Catalonia.

28 km from the hotel. Lying on fine-sanded beaches with crystal-clear water, having an aperitif on the promenade, or visiting the church of Santa Rosa de Lima are just some of the experiences that you might take away from Llafranc, this small coastal village considered one of the main charms of the Costa Brava.
Sant Sebastià lighthouse and the restored Iberian settlement are also a must. It is only a few kilometres away from other very charming villages, such as Tamariu, Calella de Palafrugell, Begur and Pals.
Calella de Palafrugell
This small village in El Baix Empordà is on the lists of the prettiest villages on the Costa Brava. The picturesque white houses, cobbled streets, boats at the port and lovely coves make it a small paradise.
We recommend discovering the landscape by following the coastline along the Coastal Path -formerly used to protect the village from pirates- on foot, by bike or on horseback.
You can also enjoy its cuisine, especially the sea urchins, and the traditional “Cantada d’Havaneras” singing in July, a gathering of reference that has been around for over fifty years.
37 km from the hotel. Begur is a wonderful village on the Costa Brava that is formed by a group of cliffs and corners of extremely beautiful countryside, such as the small beaches and fantastic coves.
You will also enjoy the small Romanesque village of Esclanyà and the medieval castle. It is an ideal place for water sports, hiking or bike rides.
Sant Feliu de Guíxols
Just 10 km from the hotel. You will find endless beaches and spectacular coves in this small fishing town surrounded by countryside.
We recommend visiting the architectural site of the Benedictine monastery, the modernist site of Sant Pol, the market or the Casino de la Constancia, among others. And while you there, don’t miss its cuisine and its range of activities. It is the ideal place to visit from the hotel, even for a few hours.
63 km from the hotel. There are many ways of discovering the Middle Ages, and Besalú is one of them. One way of entering the town is over its famous 12th century bridge.
Although it was not possible to preserve the original condition of this old fortress, it is possible to see how it would have looked in the Middle Ages thanks to important buildings such as the Jewish baths, the Monastery, the old pilgrims’ hospital or the Casa Cornellà house.
Besalú has great historic value, was declared a cultural asset of national interest and is one of the most important examples of medieval towns in Catalonia.
37 km from the hotel. If you want to take a trip to the Middle Ages, don’t miss this small wonder. Its streets preserve the original layout of the time and you can follow and even walk over the same stones as our ancestors.
Given that its state of preservation is so impressive, it was declared a Historic-Artistic Site in 1975. A town that has been able to truly preserve its essence and that will take you back to the past. Totally recommendable.
30 km from the hotel. Pals is a lovely, perfectly preserved medieval town with cobbled streets, arched alleyways and plant-covered buildings.
A quiet town in which its military past goes unnoticed as you walk through, it was the victim of several peasants’ revolts that culminated with the war against John II.
The old castle was damaged and its stones were used to build the wall and the church of San Pere. From the vantage point, you are given a wonderful view with the Medes Islands in the background.
Romanyà de la Selva
6 km from the hotel. Less than 10 minutes from the hotel, you have the chance to visit three places of great natural and cultural value, all in this small village.
One of them is the old site of megalithic constructions, the other, the 10th century pre-Romanesque church, and finally the cemetery where Mercè Rodoreda, one of the major names in Catalan literature, was buried.
You will enjoy a bucolic setting, covered with a very well-kept, peaceful cork oak forest in which to stroll, disconnect and take some good photos.
The ruins of Empúries
56 km from the hotel. An archaeological site dating back 2500 years is awaiting you in an idyllic place with spectacular sea views and access to beautiful beaches and coves. It was built by the Greeks in the 6th century B.C. before being occupied by the Romans in the 1st century B.C.
Thanks to its trading activity, it was a prosperous area until it was abandoned and covered by the dunes, remaining hidden until 1908. Walls, pillars, houses, streets, marbles and paintings of incalculable value. Are you going to miss it?

There are now several routes from Blanes to Portbou, which will amaze you with their fabulous views. Cliffs, wild plant life, romantic evenings… Some are very easy, others require a higher level of fitness. There’s bound to be an ideal Coastal Path for you.
Greenways are old railway tracks that have been converted into fun routes to walk or ride your bike along as you enjoy the local countryside and great historic-cultural heritage. They are easy and accessible for all users. There are several greenways in the province of Girona.
Those nearest the hotel are the Ruta del Carrilet from Sant Feliu de Guíxols (39.7 km), with lovely countryside right to the coast, and the Ruta del Tren Petit (6 km), which runs from Palamós to Palafrugell. If you want to ride along one of these routes, we have a bike hire service at the hotel.
52 km from the hotel. Just a mile from l’Estartit beach are the Medes Islands, formed by 7 islands and several islets. Their ecosystem has been classified as the best nature reserve in the Western Mediterranean. They have no inhabitants and the only building is the Meda Gran Lighthouse.
They have been protected for over twenty years and are a true paradise for scuba diving, taking boat trips or renting a glass-bottomed boat to see the seabed. In summer, there is a wide range of sailing and underwater activities related to the islands.
Beaches and coves
Over 200 km of beaches and coves make up the coastline of the Costa Brava. Crystal-clear, blue and turquoise waters, plenty of plant life and forests, sharp cliffs and an intense smell of the sea. Some are hidden, others are difficult to reach, which means they preserve their wildness.
Others are large and fine-sanded. There are so many that it is difficult to choose, but if you are staying at the hotel and don’t know where to start, try the nearest ones such as Cala S’Agaró and Cala del Pi (Platja d’Aro) or Cala Estreta and Cala Foradada (Palamós).
If you want to see more of the surroundings of Natura Suites and enjoy a walk through the lovely Solius mountains, we have prepared seven routes that are possible on foot or by bike starting from the hotel.
