Day trips to The Costa Brava from Barcelona
The beautiful Costa Brava coast stretches for 160km north-east of Barcelona including important touristic destinations as Roses, Lloret de Mar, L'Estartit, Tossa de Mar and Blanes.
The coast is filled with high-rise buildings and resorts for tourists as well as green hillsides, wild cliffs and natural caves.
The area has a rich history of fishing villages with ancient castles and fortifications, untouched nature and crystalline waters. The gastronomic pleasures you will find in seafood are a treat. Traditional Catalan cuisine consisting of game, boar, duck and rabbit, washed down with wines produced in the vineyards of this sunny Mediterranean coast is offered in this area.
Some of the many things to see and do worth highlighting include: Salvaldor Dali’s former house, now converted into a museum in Port Lligat, the Dali theatre and museum in Figueres, Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery, Cabo de Creus and the Medes Islands, Perelada International Music Festival, Blanes firework contest, Corpus Christi in Tossa del Mar and Habaneras recitals in Calella de Palafrugell.
