Girona & Costa Brava
The province of Girona is home to the Costa Brava, a 214-kilometre stretch of coastline comprising the regions of Al Empordà, Baix Empordà and La Selva. This coastal area begins at the mouth of the river La Tordera in Blanes and ends in Portbrou, on the border between Spain and France. It is one of the most attractive areas of the Spanish Mediterranean coast.
Without a doubt, the Costa Brava area has a wide variety of attractions that have made it what it is today. In this post we are going to talk about some remarkable areas among the many areas you should visit in this area. We start with a place where you can take a refreshing bath in a unique landscape, the beaches and coves of Bergur and Palafrugell. In addition, if you prefer to see its steep cliffs and transparent waters from a panoramic view, you can climb up to the Sant Sebastià lighthouse, 167 metres above the sea.
If you want to relive history, there are areas on Girona's Costa Brava that have maintained their essence over time. We are talking about the medieval towns of Pals and Peratallada. In them we can find from Romanesque towers to fortifications. But if you want to go even further back in time, the Iberian site of Ullastret is what you are looking for. In this village you can see Iberian archaeological remains from the 7th century. There you will also find the Museum of Archaeology of Catalonia in Ullastret.
We finish with another spectacular place, the Núria Valley. Located in the Pyrenees of Girona, this landscape is shaped like a pot, formed by mountains of three thousand meters that protect a landscape of great beauty. In it we find a sanctuary, located in front of a lake, which has been a place of pilgrimage since the 12th century.
In the town of Cistella you will find our hotel Can Clotas, surrounded by the exuberant nature of the Alt Empordà - Garrotxa. In this Catalan farmhouse converted into a boutique hotel you can enjoy a pleasant stay while you relax and rest after a long day of discovering the attractions of the Costa Brava.
