Portbou bursting with history, culture and art. I can discover as you walk through the streets, when the Rambla miserable time facing the sea or just when you arrive by train. Here's an overview:

Walter Benjamin Memorial: in memory of Walter Benjamin (1892-PortBou Berlin 1940) and European exiles between 1933 and 1945, Dani Karavan has created the memorial "Passages" in vila Portbou.

Parish church of Santa Maria: temple-like neo-Gothic cathedral. It has a length of 33 meters, a width of 8'50 meters and a height of 20 meters.

International railway station: built 1929, highlights the great iron and glass canopy covering swaths.

Portbou is sea. Born as fishing port, and is still present its essence: a people and a people open the Mediterranean more natural, untouched and wild. One of the last places where we can still while away the hours in silence as we fish, take a little boat to get lost or just be captivated with the stunning pure blue waters. It is not unusual, then, that Portbou we offer a variety of activities related to the sea:

Bathrooms in coves and pristine beaches, diving, kayaking, sport fishing, recreational boating, etc..

Portbou's seaport, but also the last village in the Pyrenees. At this point, the great mountain range juts into the sea and leads to high peaks and rugged coastal mountains become a landscape in a landscape of the mountains. This allows lost in meadows and lush forests while the horizon is dominated by the blue sea or discover the connection with the history in these mountains through the dolmens, menhirs and vineyard huts that still survive.

Doing this land excursions Tramontana come in contact with nature, you can enjoy the reservoir, from its unique setting and gullies clear, taste the many human stories linked to this place or simply free the mind from all the tensions of life everyday.
