The Costa Brava: much more than sun and sand

The Costa Brava including Girona, the capital of the region, is one of the most admired parts of Catalonia. On the coast, the beaches offer crystalline transparent water, and inland there are gentle mountains where walking and outdoor sports are a pleasure.

Girona stands out for its gastronomy, with fresh fish as the star ingredient and products such as the Palamós prawn or l’Escala anchovies.

The Costa Brava is also a byword for culture, history and art: from the legacy of the painter Salvador Dalí to medieval towns like Pals or Peratallada and the ancient ruins at Empúries and Ullastret.

Popular and cultural festivals complete the offer of a place that will not leave you unmoved. The Costa Brava is the venue for many music, theatre, magic and circus festivals, not forgetting the local festivals in summer that are held in all of the towns and villages along the coast.
