About the Location
The 28th PATMOS 2018 will be located in Hotel Cap Roig, Costa Brava, Spain.
Hotel Cap Roig is built on the rocks of the Platja D’Aro coast, enjoying stunning sea views and giving access to a private beach.
The elevator from the hotel lobby brings the guests to the rocky seafront, where a 90 meter wood made path, traversing the rock formations, leads to a set of small sandy beaches, starting with the sublime setting of the CAP ROIG beach.
Platja d’Aro sits alongside the other two settlements of the municipality Castell-Platja d’Aro:
The elegant S’Agaro, and the old town Castell d’Aro, build around a medieval castle and fortified church bursting with medieval charm.
The seafront of Platja d’Aro is full of beaches and small coves, spanning from the two kilometers soft, golden sand, of the main beach, to several small corners where the water and the trees almost touch, leaving a narrow strip of sand.
Beyond the bustling seafront, and several artistic constructs there is a whole natural world to be discovered with delights like the Gavarres mountain range, and the Parc dels Estanys, a natural setting in the heart of the city, offering an educational route with several watchtowers to observe more 250 species of birds that inhabit the wetland.
There are also very nice game-parks like the PP’S Park at the heart of Platja D’Aro.
At 78 Kms from Platja d’Aro is situated the town of Figueres birthplace Salvador Dalí. It houses the Dalí Theatre-Museum (destination of our social event), designed Dali himself. Considered as the largest surrealistic object in the world, it contains the broadest range of works spanning the artistic career of Salvador Dalí, from his earliest artistic experiences — Impressionism, Futurism, Cubism, etc. — and his surrealist creations down to the works of the last years of his life.
