EMPURIABRAVA: 24 KM OF NAVIGABLE CHANNELS

There you will find the Skydive Empuriabrava, an internationally recognized skydiving center, as well as a wind tunnel that simulates free fall.
PROTECTED SPACES AND MEDIEVAL CITY
Apart from the canals and leisure activities linked to the sea, another strong point of Castelló d´Empúries has to do with nature. The Parc Natural dels Aiguamolls is a spectacle for bird lovers and allows you to learn about an extensive sample of native flora and fauna up close.

The attractiveness of Castelló d’Empúries also has a lot to do with its historical and cultural heritage. The municipality, which played a very important role in medieval times, conserves a sector of the wall and moat that is very well preserved and contains a good number of outstanding buildings, such as the Basilica of Santa María, the Gallarda portal, the History Museum. Medieval Curia-Prisión, or the Ecomuseu-Farinera, an old flour mill that shows the way of working of bread professionals.
