There was a time when rail passengers had to change trains in Portbou because of the different track gauges in France and Spain. Many of them would take the chance to discover the town with its beaches and coves, peaceful streets and beautiful surroundings, where the Albera mountain range meets the Mediterranean. Although the town has since grown, becoming a magnet for tourists and shoppers, it has preserved its essence as a border town that lives off the sea.
