Cadaqués was discovered by painters, artists and intellectuals who chose it for a place of residence and has thus escaped the changes produced by crowded growth. It lies on the peninsula of Cape Creus, on one of the slopes looking out over the bay of Cadaques, and it is hard to know what is more surprising: whether it is the scenery, in shades of grey from the salty stones and of silvery green from the olive trees against the white of its houses and the endless horizon of the sea, or whether it is its personality, its attractive force. You can only get there through a long mountain route full of cars and sharp bends. The street that takes you to the sea is full of nice restaurants and hotels.
