Among the towns and villages on the Costa Brava, Cadaqués outstands for its genuineness and singularity. The name of Cadaqués could result from the evolution of “Cap de Quers” ( Rocks Cape) due to the large amount of rocks, especially in the area of Cap de Creus. Another option is that Cadaqués derived from "cadaquer" or "cadaquers" (forest of càdecs: shrub of this coastal area). A third possibility is that Cadaqués is the combination of two words of Greek origin, kata-kairus, occasional port (as the Greeks used this port in its trade routes when bad weather forced them to interrupt the passage).
Located at the oriental part of the peninsula of Cap de Creus, the town, which is considered as the jewel of the Costa Brava, has a history of thousands of years, dating back to the Iberians’ period.
