A medieval villñage that has just got into the 21st century in recent times up until a while back the streets were still packed mud , but are now paved .Plenty of good restaurants and a feeling of history Is well worth a visit Just to mention that Mas Pou, Can Salo and El Raco de L'Era are restaurants that are worth visiting .

Over an old bridge you visit an old medieval catalan village called Palau Sator; many visitors came to see this old village and it's castle and the bell tower; you can also visit a museum, so you can plan a half day for the visit.

A beautiful restored mediaeval Catalan village, Palau-Sator is circular in design with a road round the outside and two concentric roads within the walls with a castle and tower in the middle. This settlement has buildings that date from around the 10th century onwards and has less than 300 inhabitants. It is on a par with the similar villages of Peratallada, Pals and Ullastret which all within a few kilometres and a short drive of each other inland from the Costa Brava. The inner roads are really lanes and are barely wide enough for a car to pass along. Better to use one of the several car parks on the outer road and explore on foot. Points of interest are the landmark bell tower set above an arched gateway into the heart of the village. Outside the walls near the bell tower is a small hemispherical building set in the middle of the road which has water running from it. I have assumed in the absence of any other information that this caps a well or water source. Across from here is the remains of a public washing facility its use is quite clear but there is no water in evidence. The tower in the middle of the village was clearly for defence but as there are dwellings all around it I was unable to see if you could gain access. There is also a Rural Museum on the external road (Carrer Extramurs) which is well worth a visit. (See separate review) There are a half a dozen local restaurants all reviewed in TA so I would suggest you could easily allocate half a day here if combining a walk round, a visit to the museum and a meal. Check restaurant opening times as they are not all open every day. Worth combining a visit here with Pals to make a day out.
