Beautiful little village but they need to make some simple improvements
Jul 2021
A beautiful little village. We've visted it three times in past few years, twice with an overnight stay. Most recent was in July 21, when the village still looked beautiful but we were very disaappointed by a couple of things. Firstly, in the evenings almost all of the restaurants turn you away if you only want drinks, so it's very hard to find a place for pre or post dinner drinks. The ONLY place we could find where you could have drinks only was the Bar del Poble in the main square which closes at 10pm (the staff are very friendly and helpful there).

Secondly, on the day we stayed (a Tuesday) many of the restaurants were closed. However, from walking past them alll we found that NONE of the restaurants displayed their opening days/hours outside - surely a simple thing to do! Even worse was when we asked at the local tourist information office about which restuarants were open that night they had absolutely no idea and could only offer a list of phone numbers so we could call them! As it's such a small village with only 15 restaurants it is surely a simple thing for the tourist information office to research all of their opening days and hours and keep details of this on hand.

Picturesque postcard village

What a cute and a lovely village, especially nowadays when there are almost no people - the real feeling of the medieval times! Trying Magdalenas in famous magdalenas shop is a must!

Beautiful little town

Must see little town, pretty as a postcard, specially at night when the place is light up and one can stroll and have something to eat on a terrace.

A photographer's delight.
Sep 2020
We visited Peratallada on a weekday in September and there were surprisingly few people about.We spoke to a local resident who told us that the population of the village year round is only 50 .
Parking was free and there was plenty of space.
I much prefered Peratallada to the more famous nearby village of Pals which,in my opinion , is too exploited.
If you are in the area it is well worth a visit.There is no shortage of bars and restaurants.It is also a photographer's delight.

Picture postcard village now more famous for its eating establishments than anything else, which spoil you for choice.
The locals have picked up on this as there is no longer any free parking available.

Deceiving, a waste of time
Jul 2020 • Family
Small village just oriented to tourists. Just arrive in car, you must pay a fee for the parking, it doesn't matter how much time you'll spend in the town. Yes, streets are nice, stone buildings, medieval wall an d so on, but that's all. Everything is closed like the church, of course with the exception of the restaurants and the souvenir shops, you can find a lot, I would say the highest rate of restaurants per square meter in a Catalonian town. It was fun, at 19:15, impossible to find any restaurant to serve just a couple of beers and cokes (we were 4 people), they just wanted to serve dinners to tourists, fun because the covid, practically no tourists at all visiting the village. Very deceiving, a waste of time visiting it, better to visit another town like Castell d'Aro or Santa Cristina d'Aro

If you are going to be anywhere in the area this a must see. Would love to see inside of the homes. They can not change exterior but believe they can do what they want in the interior. Built between 1300 & 1500 it it amazing it is in great condition.

Medieval
Aug 2019 • Family
One of the most beautiful villages in the north of the country. Its narrow medieval streets and alleys and its walls and towers make it an unmisding place to visit.
there are plenty of good restaurants to taste local food but it's better to book before you get there, especially at the weekends.

Not unique..but very close to it
Aug 2019
Peratellada..suck a wonderful place. The name comes from Pedra Tallada, “Carved stone” ..simply because this is what this town is, a village cut in stone.

A few interesting facts about this incredible medieval town. 1991's Robin Hood movie was filmed in here. The Castle, now privately owned, was build even before 1065 on traces of a Bronze Age settlement.

Not far from Girona and the smaller version, Pals, Peratellada is a must see in Catalonia. If you are into history and old culture and this will not enchant you …I don’t know what else will. A few pictures attached.

Paid but cheap parking and a beautiful terrace restaurant La Roca with excellent Catalan food.
