You start this route by admiring the exceptional views of the plain from the promontory on which the fortified Romanesque church of Sant Martí del Far de l’Empordàis found, which was part of the former castle. You then continue towards Vila-sacra, where you can visit Sant Esteve church and the Abbott’s Palace, the history of which is closely linked to Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery.
Then, taking the GIV-6043, you will come to Vilanova de la Muga, Santa Eulàlia church is home to some exceptionally beautiful Romanesque paintings ( to visit them you should contact the Tourist Information Office in Peralada).
The visit ends in the mediaeval town of Peralada which was very important in the Middle Ages and was a rival of Castelló, the capital of the powerful County of Empúries.
We highly recommend visiting the old town centre and Sant Domènec Cultural Centre to admire the well-preserved Romanesque cloister of the former monastery and the town museum, dedicated to Ramon Muntaner.
Another essential visit is to the Gothic cloister of the Convent del Carme currently home to the museum and library of Peralada Castle.
