The Costa Brava
The Costa Brava basically means “Wild Coast” it starts at the French border and runs down over 130 miles to Blanes, that’s the North of Barcerlona. Near the French border the coast is more rugged with its cliffs and coves where further down the land becomes less rugged and the coast takes on a gentler curve with sandy bays.
The Costa Brava has a total of 3 National Parks and the inland areas are home to some beautifully preserved medieval towns, the area is steeped in history. The Capitol of the Costa Brava and home to the international airport is Girona, its a mixture of old and new buildings with along with old churches and Cathedrals, the Jewish quarter has plenty of trendy shops and fashionable cafe bars.
Many areas of the Costa Brava are popular tourist haunts and there are lots of resorts with apartment complexes in the coastal towns, Blanes, Tossa de Mar and Lloret de Mar to name a few.
