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. 

Culture and festivalsDiscover local culture and museums

The Costa Brava enjoys a wealth of cultural heritage, with many museums all through the province of Girona. Museums and interpretation centres for different disciplines (such as painting, sculpture, photography, religious icons, etc.) and periods (in particular the Middle Ages, the Romanesque, and modernism from the early twentieth century).

The Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres and the Carmen Thyssen Museum in Sant Feliu de Guíxols are especially noteworthy. 

Culture and festivalsA journey through history

On the Costa Brava, you can explore all of the region’s history in a very small area. Follow in the footsteps of ancient civilizations such as the Greeks and the Romans, immerse yourself in the middle ages with Romanesque art, discover the Jewish legacy in numerous streets in the province of Girona, and marvel at modernist architecture. 

Culture and festivalsCulture and festivals on the Costa Brava

Unique settings such as historical monuments and botanical gardens, internationally renowned artists, and a setting and climate that invite you to stay. The selection of festivals with music and other performing arts of some of the towns and villages of Girona are a great reason to visit the Costa Brava.

If you want to delve into the culture of a people, it is best not just to have a short stay in the main places of interest; take advantage of the days when people go out to celebrate the local festival and the most deeply rooted traditions.
