DATE: April 7 at 8am
Enjoy a beautiful excursion in the most rural and unknown Costa Brava: La Selva de Mar and the round path of El Port de la Selva.
Discover La Selva de Mar, the rural paradise of the Empordà.
The villages north of Cap de Creus have a special color and fascination. Behind a rugged landscape there is a great tranquility. And the best example of this is La Selva de Mar, one of the best kept secrets of the Costa Brava. Having the sea 2 km away has allowed it to be sheltered from beach tourism and has made it one of those places with a charm of its own and where summer days pass slowly and peacefully. Its cobbled streets and small stone bridges that span the stream, invite visitors to stroll and discover all the secret corners of this small and charming corner of the deepest Empordà.
Located in a small valley, at the foot of the mountain of Verdera, in the Rodes mountain range, this small village is a perfect example of popular Empordà architecture, with traditional houses, many of them made of slate, an abundant material in the area.
