The Costa Brava
The Costa Brava is the sum of amazing sensations from Blanes to Portbou. Nature plays a starring role in the form of three natural parks (Cap de Creus, Aiguamolls de l’Empordà and Montgrí, the Medes Islands and the Baix Ter area): three distinctive settings, three areas of great biological importance.
Our coastline will also captivate you with the beauty of its beaches – of great tourist quality – and coves, some of them authentic paradises hidden between cliffs. Not forgetting the Mediterranean character of towns such as Cadaqués or Calella de Palafrugell.
You should also take note of such singular places as the bay of Roses, the lake of Banyoles or the botanical gardens of Santa Clotilde, Pinya de Rosa, Marimurtra and Cap Roig.
The Costa Brava also boasts an array of cultural assets: sites that display the wonderful legacy of Salvador Dalí in Empordà; the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes or the castle of Peratallada; mediaeval towns such as Tossa de Mar, Púbol or Pals; the ruins of Empúries, a major archaeological site providing a fascinating insight into how the ancient Greeks and Romans lived; the traditional ceramics of La Bisbal; and Girona’s old quarter, featuring a superb historical gem, the call (Jewish quarter).
