The Costa Brava
Given its name just a century ago because of its rugged but magnificent, welcoming coastline, the Costa Brava covers nearly all of the coastline of the province of Girona.
Since the emergence of the tourist phenomenon, from Blanes to Port-Bou legendary resorts like Lloret de Mar, Platja d’Aro, Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc, Roses or Cadaqués have grown up, earning worldwide renown thanks to the natural attractions of their setting, the friendliness of their people and their cultural and gastronomic richness.
The fact is that the Costa Brava has been and still is a top holiday destination for visitors from all over the world, seduced by the attractions of a deep blue see, smooth sandy beaches, a glorious climate and marvellous residential areas with houses and flats. It also boasts modern sports and leisure facilities and excellent connections by land, sea and air.
Moreover, within a radius of a hundred kilometres there are some stunning towns and cities, including Girona, Figueres, Perpignan and Barcelona itself.
