From Begur, you can go east through the calas or take the inland route past the rose-color stone houses and ramparts of the restored medieval town of Pals. Nearby Peratallada is another medieval fortified town with a castle, tower, palace, and well-preserved walls. North of Pals there are signs for Ullastret, an Iberian village dating from the 5th century BC. L'Estartit is the jumping-off point for the spectacular natural
park surrounding the Medes Islands, famous for its protected marine life and consequently also for diving and underwater photography.
