Pals is a municipality located in the province of Girona, Spain.
Although there are no vestiges of Roman times, its name evokes that origin because the name "Pals" comes from the Latin "Palus", which means swampy place.
The municipality has a very old monumental complex formed by the castle, the town and the walls.
Within its medieval historic center stands out the Romanesque tower built between the eleventh and thirteenth centuries, known as the Tower of the Hours.
Within the Gothic Quarter of the villa there are cobbled streets and semicircular arches, facades with ogival windows and stone balconies.
The viewpoint of Josep Pla (from where you can see the fields of l'Empordà and the Medes Islands), the Plaza Mayor, the tombs in Calle Mayor and the church of Sant Pere are other tourist corners of the city.
The coastal landscape that we currently contemplate in Pals is not the same as in previous centuries. Where there are now rice and pine plantations, before there were vineyards and water.
