Flaça train station is approximately 6km from Púbol, the walk through rolling farmland takes just over an hour.
From Flaça to La Pera the route follows a gravel cycle path.
From La Pera to Pubol, You walk on the GV-6426 which is a quiet country road with little traffic.
If you will be walking in the summer months you should carry water and wear a hat since there is little shade.
If it has rained recently you may need to cross a small brook which forms just after the start of the track. There is a stepping stone so you shouldn’t get your feet wet. Alternatively, you can avoid the brook entirely by walking alongside the C-66 for the first section.
You don’t need walking boots, trainers or other casual footwear are sufficient.
If you only want to walk one way, I recommend taking a taxi to Puból and then walking back. Puból is slightly higher than Flaça so the return journey is slightly downhill.
How to walk from Flaça train station to Dali & Gala’s castle in Púbol
As you leave the train station, walk straight ahead along the rectangular plaza Plaça de l’Estacio del Carrilet (see photo above).
At the end of the plaza, turn left and follow the road out of town (C-225z).
As it leaves the town the C-225z joins the C-66, signposted La Bisbal.
At the junction, on the other side of the road, you will see an abandoned stone farmhouse and a small red sign indicating the cycle track.
Take care as you cross the road here, it’s a secondary highway there’s not much traffic but it does travel quite fast.
After crossing the road, walk down the slope in front of the farmhouse and follow the dirt track to the left.
The track follows along beside the road for about 200 m and crosses a small brook (probably dry if visiting during the summer). If it’s been raining and you want to avoid the brook, you could also walk alongside the C-66 for this first section.
The photos in this post were taken in springtime and it had rained heavily the night before. As you can see, even after heavy rain, the brook is very small.
100m after the brook, the track is replaced by a gravel road/cycle path that continues past what looks like an old abandoned water mill on the right.
Follow the cycle path for the next 3km through the countryside to La Pera.
Just before arriving at La Pera, the cycle track joins a country road that skirts around the right-hand side of the village.
From here we follow the CV-6426 for 20 minutes to Puból. This is a quiet country road with very little traffic.
Take care because there is no pavement or footpath for most of this section so you should keep an eye out for cars.
Púbol is a tiny village with a church, a castle, a bar, one restaurant 2 souvenir shops and a car park.
The entrance to the castle/museum is next to the church.
