Empordà public transport guide
Plan your arrival and travel
In the extreme northeast of Catalonia, the Alt Empordà region is connected by public transport services to the rest of the country. To facilitate your arrival and travel between municipalities, we have compiled the information of all of them in this small guide:
From Europe: crossing the French border on the AP7 motorway or the N-II road. The motorway exit is nº3. The two roads cross the region from north to south. You can also enter the coast from France to Cerbère by the N-260, which from Llançà crosses the region from east to west and allows you to continue towards the Pyrenean regions. From Barcelona or Girona: on the AP7 motorway or on the N-II road. The motorway exit is nº4. Baix Empordà and Costa Brava: The C-31 allows you to move towards the south eastern coast of Alt Empordà, and continue towards Baix Empordà.
With entry from the south (from Barcelona) or from the north (from France and passing through Portbou), the train is one of the most comfortable means of reaching Alt Empordà. In addition, distributed throughout the region, there are eight municipalities that have a railway station: Portbou, Colera, Llançà, Vilajuïga, Figueres, Vilamalla, Sant Miquel de Fluvià and Camallera.
You can check the schedules on the RENFE website.
