Figueres is set about 40 kilometres (25 miles) from L’Estartit. It is the most important of the cities bordering on France. The tourist vocation of the county makes Figueres the nerve-centre of the Costa Brava and one of Catalonia´s most important tourist zones. We recommend visiting the castle Castillo de Sant Ferran built during the reign of Fernando VI of Spain (1743), one of the most sophisticated fortresses in the world especially in respect of its outer fortifications as well as the parish church dedicated to Sant Pere. Please also take into consideration to visit some of the interesting museums such as the Museo del Joguet de Catalunya, the Museo de L’Empordà, Museo de la Técnica de L’Empordà, and the worldwide famous Dalí museum.
