Collioure to Cadaques

  • Walk the classic Mediterannean trail from Collioure to Cadaques
  • Explore a colourful coastline, inspiration to artists Dali, Picasso and Matisse
  • Overnight stops in fishing ports home to fantastic seafood restaurants
  • Discover ancient historical sites like the dramatic Sant Pere de Rodes monastery
  • The wild and rugged Cap de Creus, former home of the famous Salvador Dali
From the colourful Mediterranean fishing village of Collioure in France, follow coastal trails, with the Pyrenees as a backdrop, down to whitewashed Cadaques in Spain. Starting with a couple of nights in Collioure, the route heads south to the wine-producing region of Banyuls-sur-Mer, before crossing the border into Spain. Breath in the fresh sea air as you continue on coastal trails past hidden coves, explore ancient historical sites such as the Madeloc Tower and Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, and stop overnight in fishing ports home to fantastic seafood restaurants. It is easy to see why many artists including Dali, Matisse and Picasso were so inspired by these landscapes! Finish by heading inland briefly across the Cap de Creus national park on a rural route through the Catalan countryside to Cadaques. A final walk takes you to the Cap de Creus lighthouse and Port Ligat, former home of Salvador Dali.
