One of the most famous Spanish coasts, The Costa Brava, geographically bound by the Mediterranean Sea and the Pyrenees, is a name, which has become classical and refers to the coast of the Province of Girona including the regions of Alt Emporda, Baix Emporda and Selva of Catalonia.
The Mediterranean, has sculpted a landscape of great character along the Costa Brava, where a steeply rising shoreline is indented with superbly scenic coves and lovely beaches stretching from the north of Barcelona over the province of Girona. It is of great natural beauty, with steep cliffs and romantic small coves.
Nature, climate and history seem to be rivals in the creation of this strangely attractive environment, there is the exuberant contrast of the vegetation, which reaches down to the very edge of the sea or sometimes climbs the steep cliffs, The main role of the scenery is supported by an annual mean temperature of 16°C with moderate rainfall and 2,500 hours of sunshine a year illuminating the traces of history and art. All this together with a modern infrastructure for tourism the area turns the Costa Brava into one of the foremost tourist destinations in Spain.
