We visited Empuriabrava, also known as the Spanish Venice, in the winter season, what means there was almost no one else in the town except us.
The atmosphere around was truly magic but completely different than you can imagine if you think about one of the main touristic resorts with more than 40 km of canals. Despite the lack of snow and relatively high temperatures, we were the only tenants in the multi-story hotel. During long walks by the sea or through the mountain trails, the horses were almost the only companions we met.
The winter face of Empuriabrava was one of our unique discoveries in the northern coastline of Spain. On the one hand, we spent a few long days near the Mediterranean Sea with high waves flooding the shore and white gulls flying over our heads. On the contrary, we were separated from the rest of the area by the mountains covered with snow. From a distance, we could observe peaceful sunsets over the peaks of the Pyrenees.
Images of the Spanish winter in Empuriabrava: these are the streets without cars, empty facades of the stores, empty hotels, padlocked bars, and restaurants. There are neither traffic jams nor pedestrians. However, what you will find there, these are extraordinary mountain views, pleasant sounds of the sea, the fresh air and the sun gently warming the winter landscape. I hope to come back soon again.
