Photographer's Note

Palamós is situated at the northern end of a large bay, which is popular for swimming, sailing and windsurfing in central Costa Brava.

Palamos was founded and recognised as a village on 3 December 1279 by 'Pere el Gran', 'Comte de Barcelona'. He wanted to found a new port on the coast as the previous royal port in the region at Torroella de Montgrí on the River Ter had silted up.

The town is a major port with one of the last remaining fishing fleets on this part of the mediterranian coast. It is famous for the locally caught prawns (Gambes).
