COSTA BRAVA

The coastline of Girona province

Costa Brava coast is 256 kilometres long.

As the name “fierce coast” implies, it’s rocky but with superb beaches and coves.

The Costa Brava is formed by old fishermen’s villages that still preserve the traditional architecture.

Enjoy beautiful nature, crystal-clear water beaches and coves.

And discover the coastal paths known as “camins de ronda” that communicate with many villages. It’s the best way to get to hidden coves and see amazing cliffs.

Some of the stunning villages we can visit are:

CALELLA DE PALAFRUGELL

Located on a rocky shore full of small coves.

It is one of the most picturesque places on the Costa Brava.

The traditional coastal architecture is presented with beautiful white houses.

The “vaults” or arcades stand out in the seafront.

TOSSA DE MAR

With its medieval towers and walls it is one of the most beautiful villages on the Costa Brava.

Tossa is the only example of a fortified medieval village on the Catalan coast

A visit to the old town is essential to enjoy its Historical-Artistic Monuments, cobbled streets, the votive chapel of Virgin of Sorrows, the Municipal Museum, the church of Saint Vicens and the ruins of the old church.

CADAQUÉS

Beautiful and charming village which was the source of inspiration for many artists, such as Picasso and Dalí.

It preserves the traditional architecture of an ancient fishermen‘s village.

Cadaqués is made up of small white houses and slate coves.

The main highlights you cannot miss are:

  • the alley of the Call
  • the portal of the wall
  • Santa Maria church and its magnificient baroque altarpiece

MEDIEVAL VILLAGES

I highly recommend to discover these 3 stunning medieval towns:

PALS

The best preserved Gothic town in Catalonia with cobbled streets and hidden  corners.

Let yourserlf be captivated by:

  • the hommage tour or “Clock tower”
  • the medieval walls and the towers
  • the main square
  • Saint Peter parish church
  • the viewpoint Josep Pla

PERATALLADA

It is magical to walk through its streets: it takes you back to medieval times.

This small fortified town has a rich heritage like:

  • the moat up to 7 meters deep
  • the medieval castle
  • the “voltes” square with arches
  • the Virgin’s portal
  • bridge-houses

And much more!

BESALÚ

The heritage jewel of la Garrotxa region with stories of counts and abbots.

It is a village with special charm. Not only for the craft shops, but because the beautiful alleys with cobbled streets.

The fortified bridge is the symbol of the small town. It mesures 105 meters long and it was directly built on the river rocks.

Besalú showcasts a rich Jewish heritage: the only medieval synagogue of Catalonia; the Jewish square and portal; the yeshiva; and the mikve – the Jewish purification bath dating back to XII C, that constitutes the oldest mikve outside of Israel. The mikve can be visited only with a reservation.

For the lovers of old buildings, you might visit the two Romanesque churches located in town: Saint Peter and Saint Vicenç. Both are opened daily and the entrance fee is 1€ per person.

Information

 
 We need transportation to visit these villages
 
 
My tours suggestions:
 
> visit PALS + PERATALLADA the same day
due to the fact both medieval villages are located close each other, about 15 minutes drive
 
> BESALÚ could be visit along with Girona or the Dali Museum
