view map

Begur has 3,986 inhabitants (according to the census of 2005). It is an important tourist attraction in the Baix Empordą. During the summer, the population can exceed 40,000 people.
Despite of its touristic character, the village has important historical remnants that go back in early history. The castle of Begur is a good example of medieval remains. The castle was constructed in the 16th and 17th centuries.
The town of Begur also includes Esclanyą (with a Roman town centre), Aiguafreda, Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Aiguablava and Fornells. Some of the most prestigious beaches of the Costa Brava can be found here: Sa Riera, Aiguafreda, sa Tuna, Platja Fonda, Fornells and Aiguablava. The latter is also home to a Parador Hotel.
