Perelada is a small town in the vicinity of Figueras, famous for its beautiful castle of the XIII century. By the way, this castle houses one of only four casinos operating in Catalonia (other casinos are located in Barcelona, Tarragona and Lloret de Mar). The annual music festival is also held at the castle, with famous stars such as Montserrat Caballe, Paco de Lucía, Placido Domingo and many others taking part in it. Perelada is also very well known as a place of production of quality wine and cava (this is our Catalan champagne).
