There is a Walter Benjamin route but there's little information, so better read up a little before visiting. Suffice to say, Benjamin died in the Hotel in Portbou while fleeing France at the beginning of the War. He was trying to cross Spain to get to Portugal but his party was held up at the border. The hotel is still standing.
We had lunch in town, but it being New Year's Eve, the choice was limited.
On the way back we stopped at the Platja (beach) de Garbet.
Then a visit to the 10th-12th Century Sant Eulalia Church In Vilanova de la Muga (just outside Figueres). The painted apse is 13th century. It's a beautiful Romanesque church.
Here there is a 'Ruta dels Estanys', an attractive walk, taking in both sides of the Muga river.
