Vilaür is a small village of 5.6 km² and 150 inhabitants. It lies to the south of the River Fluvià, in the interior region of the Alt Empordà, between Bàscara and L’Escala, where you can find a wide range of cultural activities, entertainment, shops and restaurants. In medieval times, it was a fortified village surrounded by a great wall which today is still almost entirely preserved. Vilaür is located in an ideal place for walking. There is a large circuit of paths and trails for excursions on foot, bike or horseback etc, with different degrees of difficulty. Some of the routes are easy and can be done with children while others are more difficult having sections with steep inclines.
Being close to the river and the Mediterranean Sea, this village is a perfect destination for all types of activities.
