Espolla is a munipality in northeast Catalonia, close to the French border and about 45 minutes by car from the coast.

Things to do in Espolla, Spain

An Espolla holiday cottage would appeal to you if you’re in need of some peace and quiet, or want to get back to nature for a few days. The Albera mountains are all around and offer a welcome escape from the busy beaches and resorts of the Costa Brava. They remain remarkably untouched by tourism or development and feature numerous Megalithic structures, including menhirs and dolmen. There are numerous trails that will take you to the most scenic spots or sites of archaeological interest. Keep an eye out for Albera cows, which are allowed to roam free throughout this upland area.

There’s also plenty of history surrounding self-catering villas in Espolla, with Romanesque chirches, monasteries and medieval castles. Requesens Castle is just 20 minutes away by car and dates to the 9th Century, with a Romanesque chapel. The castle is surrounded by a forest of Lebanese cedars, said to have been planted by noblemen centuries ago.

The town of Figueres sits just 17 kilometes from villa rentals in Espolla and is synonymous with surrealist artist Salvador Dali, who was born here. There’s a museum devoted to his work that merits a visit by anyone with a passing interest in 20th Century art. Also in Figueres is the 18th Century San Ferran castle, which is the largest historic monument in the whole of Catalonia.

Had we known this we would not have booked this property as my husband had work to do and we had to buy additional data for our phones just to download a newspaper.
