Llanca lies between Colera to the north and La Selva.  Extensive history: pre-, Iberic, Roman, medieval.  Beautiful beaches, lots of sun, wine, quiet streets, and the Parc Natural de Cap de Creus make this area well worth a visit.

The Festa Major de Sant Vicenc is celebrated in January with dancing, food and a blessing of the animals.  In June, they celebrate the Jornades Gastronomiques (food tours) de l’Escamarla (longline trawlers), featuring seafood.  Then there is the festa Sant Joan the last week of June.  The Festa del Carme is in Mid-July, as well as the Empordalia, a celebration of the products of the area.  There are several art fairs and markets in the summer in town.  Then in mid August, you have the Festa d’Estiu, and the Festa Major is the last weekend of August.

Esquers, Llop and Tifell have also been included in the Colera post because they are reachable from either side of the Serra and can be included in itineraries from each direction.
