Area Guide: The Costa Brava

The Costa Brava

The coastal zone of the Costa Brava begins 4kms North of Barcelona and extends to the French border. It is well known for its beaches and resorts, with a scenic and rugged coastline: a succession of coves, cliffs, and mountaintop lookouts dotted along.

Some its areas have been massively dedicated to tourism, but others, such as Tossa de Mar, still retain their original size and fishing village charm.

Other picturesque towns and villages can be foundall along the Costa Brava, as well as the Greek and Roman ruins of Empúries.

Two inland towns make for good day-trips if you're vacationing on the coast. The riverside town of Girona (Gerona in Spanish) features an 13th-century cathedral, an old Jewish quarter, and museums. The Salvador Dalí Museum is a must for lovers of surrealism.
