This marvellous coast in the province of Girona runs from the mouth of the Tordera river to the French border. It was first baptised with this name by Ferran Agulló, a journalist from Girona, in an article published in 1908 in the “La veu de Catalunya” newspaper in Barcelona. This name couldn’t by more ideal as it accurately highlights the principal quality of this abrupt coast, full of cliffs, wild vegetation where nature almost submerges into the blue sea and infinite coves and inlets covered in golden sand. In this route through the incredibly unique natural surroundings we can find some of the most charming villages in Catalonia. Small fishing villages with great maritime traditions that, little by little, have received mass arrivals of tourists from all over the world in the search for their best-kept secrets.
A welcoming land, these beaches have sheltered many famous characters, writers, painters, etc. who have found the most desired source of inspiration in the landscapes of the Costa Brava. Salvador Dalí himself, the genius of surrealism and native of Figueres, settled his residence for downtime between the Castle of Púbol and Cadaqués.
We cannot forget to mention the great gastronomic wealth offered by this part of the coast of Catalonia. It is not just the origin of the most prized products from our land, such as prawns from Palamós, curd from Fonteta or rice from Pals, but can also boast being the home of the best restaurant in the world: El Celler de Can Roca, run by the Roca brothers in Taialá, Girona.
Without a doubt, the Costa Brava has a great contrast of sensations, landscapes and emotions within the framework of an exclusive environment that has an impact on everyone that visits it.
