COSTA BRAVA | @FRECKLESNUR

by Vanna Villa

The¬†Costa Brava¬†is the sum of amazing sensations from Blanes to Portbou. Nature plays a starring role in the form of three natural parks (Cap de Creus, Aiguamolls de l’Empord√†¬†and¬†Montgr√≠, the¬†Medes¬†Islands¬†and the¬†Baix Ter¬†area): three distinctive settings, three areas of great biological importance. The coastline will also take your breath away with the beauty of its superb¬†beaches¬†and heavenly¬†coves¬†nestled among cliffs, not to mention typical Mediterranean towns such as¬†Cadaqu√©s¬†or¬†Calella de Palafrugell, and unique beauty spots such as the¬†bay¬†of Roses,¬†Banyoles lake, and the¬†botanical gardens¬†of Santa Clotilde, Pinya de Rosa, Marimurtra and Cap Roig.

 

The¬†Costa Brava¬†also boasts an array of cultural assets: sites that display the wonderful legacy of¬†Salvador Dal√≠¬†in Empord√†; the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes or the castle of Peratallada;¬†mediaeval towns¬†such as Tossa de Mar, P√ļbol or Pals; the¬†ruins of Emp√ļries, a major archaeological site providing a fascinating insight into how the ancient Greeks and Romans lived; the traditional¬†ceramics¬†of La Bisbal; and¬†Girona’s¬†old quarter, featuring a superb historical gem, the¬†call(Jewish quarter).
