... but I love the “little history” of my local area – Baix Empordà in the north of Catalunya. I have lived here for six and a half years and almost every day I find something of interest that I previously had no idea about.

Recently, I joined a U3A Costa Brava group on a tour of two small villages, Corçà and Monells, which are located between the coast and the lovely medieval city of Girona. Our guide was the excellent Nik Duserm, who always brings life to places that on the surface seem to have been asleep for centuries.

This tour was no different as we wandered the ancient streets of Corçà, which is set back from the main road and which most people pass without a second thought. I have actually been there a few times as there is an excellent butcher hidden in one of the streets who makes wonderful local sausages!
On our visit, we discovered the remains of the original defensive walls of this small enclave, and ancient houses with symbols above the door identifying the trade of the person who lived there – rather like in Pompeii or Ephesus where, in Roman times, trades were marked in doorways....
