Palamós is a place born of the sea. The Mediterranean has written the town’s history, given it meaning, driven its traditional trades and shaped its cuisine, features that are apparent at any business meeting celebrated in this destination.

1. Carme Chapel

The church, built between 1768 and 1771 by master builder Miquel Basart, is a single nave. It has two side chapels and a rectangular apse and was home to the image of the Mare de Déu del Carme, owned by Father Miquel Costa. Bombing during the Civil War demolished the hospital but left the chapel intact. The chapel became town property in 1999. Renovation of the chapel began in 2008 and today serves as the headquarters of the Ezequiel Torroella Art Space and Local Heritage Interpretation Centre. It can seat seventy people and a stage is available
