El Port de la Selva (Alt Empordà)

In the heart of the Cap de Creus in the region of Alt Empordà, very close to the magic of Cadaqués and the march of Roses, is the town of Port de la Selva. This small fishing village has managed to stay away from the tourists so characteristic of the Costa Brava. The turquoise waters bathe this secret spot of one of the most beautiful areas of Catalonia.The first references to the place date back to 974 when the portus quod discunt Armi-rodas is named as a donation of Gausfred I of Empuries-Rosselló to the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes. The small town of Selva de Mar was in charge of providing service to the monastery and cultivated vineyards and olive trees. Fishing became increasingly important and some people went down to the bay to fish.
