There are others, like the Espai Thyssen, the Josep Pla Foundation at Palafrugell, the Sant Sebastià Lighthouse, just to name a few.

 

The Costa Brava

The Costa Brava is a sum of feelings that will pleasantly surprise you, from Blanes to Portbou. Nature has a prominent role in these parts, with the Cap de Creus’ Natural Park, the Emporda’s Natural Park of the Aiguamolls, the Montgrí’s Natural Park, the Medes Islands and the Baix Ter, –these last three brimming with biologic value.

Our coasts will also fascinate you for the beauty of its beaches –of great touristic value– and coves, some of them true paradises hidden between cliffs. There are also picturesque coastal villages like Cadaqués or Calella de Palafrugell, the Castell beach, the Estreta cove or the Alguer’s cove.

Beyond the sightseeing-beauty of coves and beaches, you will also find special retreats such as Roses bay, Banyoles pond, or the multiple botanic gardens located in Pinya de Rosa i Marimurtra (Blanes), Santa Clotilde (Lloret de Mar) and Cap Roig (Calella de Palafrugell).

The Costa Brava also offers you a wide selection of cultural propositions: the great footprint of Salvador Dalí in l’Empordà; the Sant Pere de Rodes’ monastery or Peralada castle. Medieval towns such as Tossa de Mar, Púbol, Pals or Peratallada. The Greek and Roman ruins in Empúries, ; the exceptional testament of the first Iberian settlers in Ullastret; the potter tradition of Bisbal, and the old city of Girona, with a first-class historical jewel in the shape of the Jewish quarter.
