Garriguella

Garriguella de Baix, known as “La Periguilla”, was the first area to be settled in. The walls and the bases of the towers that surrounded the old living quarters are still visible.

Garriguella de Noves has a larger population and it grew up around the old Romanesque church of Santa Eulàlia (9th-10th century). One part of this Romanesque church can still be seen today from behind the presentday parish church of Santa Eulàlia, which was built in the 18th century.

The Mala Veïna tower is a historic stone building situated on a hill known as the Costa de la Torre, on the old Peralada road.

The Costa de la Torre viewpoint is situated on the Garriguella plain, at km 50 of the La Bisbal to Portbou road.

The town’s Agricultural Cooperative, which sells local wines, is situated at km 53 of the La Bisbal to Portbou road.

The Centre de Reproducció de Tortugues de l’Albera (L’Albera Turtle Breeding Centre) has breeding facilities for the Iberian Peninsula’s last population of Hermann’s tortoises. These are very attractive land-dwelling tortoises that are extremely rare in the Mediterranean, due mainly to the loss of their habitat and poaching. All the profits made by the Centre are used for research purposes and for the conservation of this reptile.
