Cadaqués is a picturesque village in Spain, located on the rocky coast, accessible only through a narrow road. Getting lost in its labyrinthine streets, feel its history through the old pavement of the town made by hand with stones shaped by the swaying of the waves. Having lunch in front of the sea, enjoying fish and shellfish, the most succulent and appreciated dishes … and it is not surprising, because due to the rocky terrain and the strong sea storms, the fish has an intense flavor.
After lunch, enjoy the beautiful view of the bay and the town from its highest point – church of Sta. María de Cadaqués. Curious fact about it is that the old church was destroyed by the famous Turkish pirate Barbaroja, who attacked the town in 1543. After this event it was decided that the new church would be rebuilt with the money of the fishermen who were fishing on forbidden days. Very important to say that Cadaqués has a special place in art history. Salvador Dalí often visited Cadaqués in his childhood, and later kept a home in Port Lligat, a small village on a bay next to the town. Other notable artists, including Pablo Picasso, Joan Miró, Marcel Duchamp, Richard Hamilton, Albert Ràfols-Casamada, Antoni Pitxot, Henri-François Rey, Melina Mercouri and Maurice Boitel also spent time here. Cadaques is a very very special place!
