The town of PERATALLADA

Peratallada is an officially-recognised historical-artistic town, and is one of the most important centres of Medieval architecture in the Emporda region.

This pretty town still retains its medieval look and feel with its fortified castle and its tower-together with its 11th century palace, 12th century town walls and the Romanesque, 12th century church of St. Esteve.

The striking feature of the large moat around the town was wrought from solid rock-hence the name of the town “Pedra Tallada” or “Hewn Rock”.

The town still conserves its medieval appearance, from the squares with their distinctive archways to the network of narrow streets where you can discover an enchanting array of traditional architectural styles.

One of the great attractions of Peratallada centres on the preservation of its rural character, in keeping with its architectural and urban origins. The town also offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy local cuisine and traditional crafts, both deeply-rooted characteristics of this unique area.

Peratallada hides a host of comfortable bars and restaurants restaurants, hotels, antique and craft shops and art galleries, in a friendly, welcoming atmosphere which runs throughout the town and captivates any visitor who cares to wander through its streets.
