Peratallada, literally ‘cut stone’, still keeps its medieval appearance thanks to its emblematic buildings such as the castle, built over different periods of time in different styles while still considered one of the most interesting examples of medieval palace in Catalonia. Besides this fortress, we can also fins remarkable constructions such as the Keep, the Tower of Hours, and the captivating plaça de les Voltes.
