Habaneras Recital

Address:Platja de Port Bo. Calella de Palafrugell

The Habaneras Recital of Calella de Palafrugell is a singing musical performance that is held every first Saturday of the month of July on the Port Bo beach, in this coastal village of Costa Brava center. Habanera is a musical style emerged from the migration of men from this area to the island of Cuba during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. On his return to Ampurdán region, migrants song wistfully to the Caribbean land, its landscapes, its women, its sea. This festival (without doubt, the most important of its kind) has been held since 1966 and attracts tens of thousands of people on the beach, on boats and even from the terraces, around the traditional drink on this occasion: the rom cremat (burned rhum).

    The Roman wine press was found in Coral Street, a few meters from the Llafranc beach in 1999, and has its origin in the first century after Christ. It is another evidence of the important Roman villa that was here at the time, taking advantage of the excellent port of Llafranc, protected from the north winds. In the village there was also a cellar (very near the Church of Santa Rosa) and a tombstone necropolis as shown next the press, with a touching inscription from Caesarea widow to her husband Carudo.

    Dolmen Can Mina dels Torrents is 1 km far away from Llafranc center, in the middle of the wood, so it is highly recommended a visit by a walk. It is an ancient tomb, with no corridor, built between 3400 and 3000 BC. The maximum length inside is 2.10 meters and height is 1.60 meters. It is believed that around it had a cromlech though, because of being on a former vineyard field, it was removed.
