With its rocky creeks and their crystal waters, its narrow cobbled streets leading up to the castle, Begur is every inch the typical Catalan village. And yet its architecture, with its frescoes, louvered shutters and colourful façades, seems far more like a town in... Cuba! And for good reason, the town’s ancestors, the famous “Indians”, emigrated to the Caribbean a very long time ago and were inspired by the Cuban influence when returning home to build their villas. Today, the people of Begur pay tribute to this architectural and also cultural heritage during the now famous “Fira d’Indians”, celebrated each year.
On the programme for this grand traditional celebration: concerts that fill the streets with the sound of Cuban music, tastings of West Indian dishes washed down by that all-essential glass of rum, shows for all the family... The Begur Fira d’Indians is also an opportunity for the new generation to get to know the heritage of their town better, through historical re-enactments, documentaries and conferences. So come and travel to the heart of the Caribbean during your camping stay on the Costa Brava!
