Currently, Begur is dedicated to tourism as the main source of its economy, but continues to maintain a strong historical roots in their municipality, as its geographical position from the beginning has been an important and strategic.

This last find different elements within their municipality such as the Castle of Begur which is certainly emblematic of the medieval period, the streets and squares of the old town of Castle Street and showing even its narrowness and appearance rustic characteristic of the time, or the town square where the market was held fish before you have an area dedicated to this function, and where we find is sang d'es Peix, where women sold fish and explained the village gossip; defense towers took care of the population to Arab pirates such as Marquis or Can Sant Ramon, and we can not forget all those constructions created by the Indians who went, especially to Cuba, among which are that of Mr. Puig, the Can Pi or more Casino Careers Cultural nor that they ordered the construction in 1870 as a place for entertainment and leisure and which was also known as House of the Lords.
