La Escala

L'Escala is the gateway to the gulf of Roses, from a geographical as well as a tourist point of view. This village, which is one of the main fishing harbours along the coast, is also an important tourist centre, combining the smell of salt water with the bustle of tourists who add a note of colour and joy to it. For them the village has a special attraction that are the trainyeros, typical boats which leave the harbour at night with their lamps lit to go fishing.

Hi Jennie, Fifteen days before finding an entrance ticket for the Sagrada Familia or Park Güell is quite normal at this time of year, as we are entering the high season. To ensure that visits are enjoyable for all, the overall number of visitors is limited. Our tip : opt for tickets with guided tour, often available during peak periods Best, .

    Voilà 2 fois que je me rends à l'Escala, d'ailleurs l'année prochaine je serai de nouveau au rendez-vous.
    Je confirme ce que Jérome dit. On y est allés ensemble.
    Petite station sympa; A recommander.

    Enfin c'est superr..

  5. l'escala - jérôme houmard (28 Jun 2007 - 12:58)

    super ville et ambiance géniale.
    j'y suis déjà allé 3 fois et je compte y retourner l'année prochaine. il y a bcp de jolis endroits à voir dans les environs.
    multitudes de restos sympas et de bonne qualité, pour tous les goûts et prix raisonnables.
    les plages,surtout celles près des ruines d'empuries sont magnifiques et très bien entretenues.
    sur la rue principale qui longe le front de mer,il y a un petit bistrot (entre la banque et la pizzeria) qui sert une sangria excellente... avis aux amateurs!!!!!
    le soir,l'animation ne manque pas et de nombreux commerces permettent de faire des achats sympas.
    le soir également, environ 2 fois par semaine, à voir absolument, un artiste qui fait de la peinture uniquement avec des aérosols de peinture. extraordinaire!!!!!
    en résumé,il faut s'y rendre pour apprécier cette jolie ville!
