Peratallada, Oct 2019
For visitors to Catalonia, Barcelona is their prize and sometimes their only destination; the lovely city of Girona sits in its shadow. I’ll get to why this is a mistake in a future blog. For now, I’ll give a shout-out to a place 22 kilometers east that is loved by people in the region, but hardly known at all by those from further away: the medieval village of Peratallada.
The French give it the top accolade they can muster, “It’s gorgeous… lovely… I mean… it’s very French!” And indeed it is. The photographs look very like the one on the LifeSlice homepage, but it’s nearly 400 km from there. If you want to go a few miles from city pleasures and several hundred years back in time… pay this beauty a visit.
