Despite their modest size on the map, there’s a world of experiences to discover in the vibrant Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees. Starting with an array of breathtaking natural environments, no less than a third of the land is protected, boasting a total of eight unique natural parks, which, among many other stunning landscapes, include volcanic areas, coves, beaches and cliffs, wetlands, valleys and high mountain peaks. Nature in all its glory.
The picturesque fishing villages and small mountain towns exude an air of authentic charm and contain numerous reminders of days gone by, ranging from prehistoric remains, to Iberian villages, Graeco-Roman ruins, medieval towns and Romanesque monasteries and churches.
Highlights of an important cultural legacy include art from the Olot school of painting and the work of surrealist genius, Salvador Dalí, together with a vibrant tradition of local festivals, fairs and markets, as well as the extensive calendar of arts festivals spanning music, theatre, magic and many other disciplines.
And all of this, blended with a local cuisine that fuses innovation and tradition, tastes of the sea and the mountains and has firmly placed the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees on the gastronomic map.
