CAP NORFEU - JÒNCOLS
Admiring the Bay of Roses, we pass by the lovely small coves of the Cap de Creus Nature Park, also passing by Punta Falconera and enjoying a wonderful submarine view of the seabed of Cala Murtra.
We continue along the coves, and at Cala Montjoi we will see the famous restaurant El Bulli of the chef Ferran Adrià. Then we reach Cap Norfeu, where we will see the spectacular rock ‘The Cat’ (named for its shape), and if the weather permits we will enter the Tamariu cave, then continuing the route to the bay of Cala Jóncols.
+ INFORMATION: The Cap Norfeu forms a long, narrow, curving peninsula, very rocky and full of cliffs and natural coves. To the south-east lie the Mòniques islands, rocky islets that include the ones named the Cavall Bernat (‘rampant horse’) and El Gat (‘cat’) for their shapes. At the highest point of the Cap Norfeu there are the remains of a watchtower, named the Norfeu Tower, built around the year 1604 as a part of the defensive system of the Gulf of Roses against the Barbary pirates.
The Cap Norfeu is classified as a integral reserve, the highest degree of protection of the entire Cap de Creus Nature Park.
