Begur isn’t all sun, sea and sightseeing. You can get some serious shopping done here, too, whether you’re looking for high street bargains or traditional trinkets.
To sample authentic Catalan shopping culture, head to the elegant streets of Old Town Palamos. You’ll find quaint boutiques selling local crafts, clothing and gourmet gifts, as well as the bustling Municipal Market. What should you look out for? Traditional woven baskets are a safe bet, as are foodie gifts such as anchovies packed in oil.
Just a stone’s throw from your Begur villa is Centre Commercial Cavallers. Hop on the bus and spend the afternoon browsing discount designer gear and electronics. To stock up on famous Catalan pottery head to La Bisbal Ceramics. It houses bespoke, eye-catching works, crafted by some of the leading ceramic artists in Catalonia.
