And some interesting background info:
Located in the heart of Empordà, the unspoiled northern part of the Costa Brava, Begur is a town steeped in history. Beneath the shelter of its medieval castle herdsmen, fishermen, bottle cork manufacturers and emigrants returning from the Americas have contributed to the pages of the town’s history. Being a small town with deep rooted customs, the weekly market (Wednesdays) forms an important part of the town’s commercial life.
