Best hotels in Cadaques
Cadaques attracts beach lovers and art enthusiasts to a beautiful location on the Costa Brava. It's a picturesque resort and fishing village hemmed in by wooded crags, with pretty white-washed houses and an air of tranquility. It has also been an artists' idyll since the 1930's. Cadaques is closely associated with the Surrealist Salvador Dali who spent most of his life in the area. Visitors are invariably charmed by this elegant and alluring Costa Brava destination. Hotels.com has partnered with great Cadaques hotels to offer travelers the best value rooms in the town regardless of their budget or preferences. Booking accommodation in advance with Hotels.com endures a relaxed arrival in this stylish resort.
What's Cadaques Like?
In contrast to the noisier resorts of the Costa Brava, Cadaques has a calm air, protected by the hills that provide its sheltered position. The old town is a charming cluster of traditional houses on cobbled streets gathering around the 16th century church, the Gothic Església de Santa María. The Dali association is an obvious draw. A statue of the artist adorns the seafront in Cadaques while Dali's house in nearby Port Lligat, a 30 minute walk along the beach from the town, is as eccentric as the man himself. There are guided tours of the house, now a museum devoted to his life and work. The rugged scenery around Cadaques is exhilarating, particularly the hiking trails over the Cap de Creus, with spectacular Mediterranean vistas. Cadaques hotels offer an ideal base for enjoying the northern stretch of the Costa Brava.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Cadaques
Cadaques has a laid-back bohemian feel unlike anywhere else on the Costa Brava. English is not necessarily understood everywhere. Trying out some Spanish or preferably Catalan phrases in bars and restaurants will be appreciated. As a working fishing port, Cadaques is obviously blessed with some excellent fish restaurants. Try traditional dishes such as suquet, a stew made with whatever has been caught that day. Fresh grilled fish is often served with the distinctive local romesco sauce made with peppers, almonds, garlic and olive oil. This area is also the home of cava, the Catalan equivalent of champagne and an excellent accompaniment to fish or shellfish.
