Verges is set atop a small hill on the Empordà plain, bathed by the Ter river. Its mediaeval past is evident in the ruins of the ancient castle, the old town walls and the narrow streets. This is the setting for the popular Verges procession, declared a festival of National Interest, which takes place every year on Maundy Thursday at night. The magic of this festival and its traditional dance of death will captivate you. The next day, get your breath back with a stroll among the groves alongside the Ter river.
