A very well maintained village, well worth a visit..especially at night when it is all lit up. Plenty of shops to browse around and lots of cafes and restaurants which are reasonably priced.

Having visited many medieval villages in Europe, this one was especially charming. There are several cafes in the village and several small shops, we found the prices surprisingly low. Just ensure: don't wear any high heels, unless you want to get stuck between the cobble...More

It is beautiful. It's worth spending a little time here. We were not able to see the Jewish museum-check the hours. The architecture is of course beautiful. The guy at the information kiosk when we were there did not speak English which was a problem...More

Last day in costa Brava and decided to visit Pals. Not sure if it’s typically a sleepy town but there were minimal tourists which made for quiet peaceful strolls throughout. The buildings all seemed well maintained to its original structure. Not much to do here...More

These small towns are worth to be visited. Small streets, clock tower, old church and a few bars for espresso and a beer.

Beautiful place to visit, expensive in some ways compared to surrounding areas but very scenic location.

Pals is a small hilltop village just inland from the coast. The compact old town is excellent for souvenir shopping and getting those perfect vacation pictures.

Such a beautiful little town! We visited as part of a guided tour on our last day in Spain, such a special place! Most of the shopping here is junky stuff that you can find in the US but the pottery is very nice!

Well worth a visit to experience this walled city. The views are great and the architecture is special. It's small, so you can see it in an hour if you don't want to shop or eat.

We have not been to Pals for a couple of years, although we are visiting Costa Brava regularly. Since we had good memories about Pals we decided to go there again. It is still as beautiful as ever. The city has been kept in shape...More

If you want it to be quieter arrive early or late / avoid weekends. No need for a guide. There is some useful TI info available about the region. It's a good idea to visit the other villages in the area too eg Sa Tuna, Begur... More
