It is said “l’Empordà” is a land of a freedom, a freedom that can be found in its landscape and its people. Often it’s hard to describe the feelings we get from certain places, the light and aromas that surround it, slowly finding their way into our memories.
It’s far from random why we want Torroella de Montgrí to be the home of Traveling Light. It all began with a feeling and developed into a “we can’t be anywhere else” sensation the more we learned about it.
Torroella allows you to get lost between its walls and narrow streets, inviting you to discover every inch of its corners. You can feel the landscape in its food and the taste of a genuine hospitality in its people. The culture in the town is way broader than would expect with 3 main museums dedicated to photography, painting and the cultural history of the Mediterranean.
Nevertheless, it’s 5 minutes away from the seaside, l’Estartit, it’s sister town. It hosts hundreds of people during summer willing to hike the coast, relax by the sea or dive into the best natural reserve in the western Mediterranean.
