Llançà is a small village placed at the "Cabo Creus" Peninsula (northern Costa Brava). It has the classic structure of the seaside villages of the zone, with a main nucleus in the inside, hidden from possible pirate attacks (which were frequent at the Time), and a fisherman quarter on the seaside.
This quarter is the center from which the urbanizations have grown proportionately avoiding mass congregation, and always started from a beach-side. Llançá maintains part of its primitive economic structure: Agriculture, and most of all fishing. Fishing has grown a great degree due to the new harbour. For this reasons, tourist can daily degustate all the precious specimens from the Mediterranean waters.
Situated 15 km from the French border, Llançá is provided of a train station, and a sports harbour with 500 moorings. And by road, you can visit Figueras (20 km.) which is a good commercial and cultural center (Dalí Museum), a casino enclaved in an old castle (Peralada, 14 km.) or even play golf in the surroundings. Also you can visit many romanic monuments, either inside or outside Llançá. Inside Llançá we must stand out the main square and its church, and also the Castellar Peninsula in the harbour from where you have a fantastic sight to the French border at the Nort-West and down to "Cabo Creus" at the South-West.
