In approximately 500 BC an old Iberian fortified town was built where Peralada lies today. During the Middle Ages, Peralada was one of the most important towns in this area of the Costa Brava and even had its own army to defend its inhabitants from attacks from Besalú and Empúries. Traces of this glorious era can be seen in some of the stunning buildings that can be visited today.
Only 15 kms. from Roses, Peralada is nowadays famous for its prestigious International Music Festival taking place every summer in the Peralada Castle.
