Palafrugell

In Palafrugell visitors can see the birthplace of the writer Josep Pla (1897-1981) and stroll through the old quarter surrounding the Church of Sant Martí and the market, selling much of the region’s fine produce.

Palafrugell’s past is linked to the prosperity brought by the cork industry, testimony to which is the interesting Cork Museum. In addition, the old cork factory, Can Mario, displays a noteworthy collection of contemporary art.
