CAP DE CREUS + PORT LLIGAT + CADAQUÉS
We sail along the coast of the Cap de Creus Nature Park, passing by Cala Jóncols, Cap Norfeu, seeing the rock named ‘the Cat,’ and if weather permits we enter the Tamariu cave. Then we pass by the small coves of the Nature Park to reach the point of the Cap de Creus, a rugged, rocky headland rising to 672 m above the Mediterranean Sea, forming a small, hilly peninsula carved by countless chasms that form small coves oriented according to the structure of the masses of slate. Returning, we enter the bay of Port Lligat, where we can view the Salvador Dalí House-Museum from the boat, and then we reach Cadaqués, where we make a 90-minute stop to explore this supremely picturesque fishing town.
+ INFORMATION: The Cap de Creus lighthouse is situated at the easternmost point of the Iberian Peninsula, 500 metres from the tip of the headland, in an area of complicated topography. The first document referring to a lighthouse here is a 14th-century charter signed by King Pere the Cerimonious ratifying the privileges of Cadaqués. It was destroyed several times but finally reconstructed in the 19th century in the characteristic form of that time, with a square floor plan and the 11-metre signal tower in the centre. The tower has been modified and partially reformed on various occasions to adapt it to technical advances.
