Pals is a municipality belonging to Comarca del Bajo Ampurdán, within the province of Gerona. It has about 3,000 inhabitants, but its population increases considerably in the summer, basically. Pals is dedicated primarily to tourism.
Pals has three interesting nuclei to note if you want to rent an apartment in the area. First, the top of the hillis where is the oldest nucleus. This area is the historical district, of medieval origin, especially where it highlights the Romanesque tower of the 11th and 13th centuries, known as Torre de las Horas, or the Tower of the Hours. It is one of the most visited spots by tourists during their holidays. There are also cobbled streets where one can get lost and it seems that time does not pass, while you observe the arches, the facades of stone houses, etc. A really interesting trip is to visit the historic center.
The town is walled with four towers of the 4th century and has a viewpoint, called Josep Pla, from which you can see the fields of Ampurdán and the Medas Islands.
The following core of Pals is its beach. Formerly, the beach was called El Grau, i.e., port. Today the beach of Pals is known as Carandell, and is one of the largest and most spectacular of the Costa Brava. it is divided into two sectors: the north side, next to the golf course, which is the oldest in the Costa Brava,and the south side, which adjoins the town of Begur, another area recommended to visit.
The third core of Pals is found in the buildings of the Playa de Pals. This site highlights the biggest holiday apartments, hotels and other accommodations, but also restaurants, as it is a town with fishing tradition, where you can taste the best fresh fish.
In the cuisine, Pals is considered the land of rice. It is one of the areas par excellence of rice and paella. The most popular dish is rice with cuttlefish, shrimp and pork chop. Also in high demand are sardines, anchovies, shrimp, vegetables and meats. As for drinks, you can never miss a good bottle of wine to accompany the rice. After an authentic lunch or dinner, you can go to rest in your rental apartment.
We must highlight the Rice of Pals, a type of rice grown and produced in Ampurdán and which is marketed under the name "Arroz de Pals". It is a premium quality rice and is marketed under the trademark "Productes de l'Empordà".

One is to take the AP-2, a course that integrates some tolls to reach Pals in 9 hours. The other alternatives are to go by the AP-68 or the A64.
Many tourists or locals from Madrid or the center of Spain also visit Pals.

But if on the contrary, your starting point is the south, you can take the A-7 and link it to the AP-7 or go by the A-4 to engage after the A-2. In about 9 hours you will be at our destination.
