Essential Costa Brava
The Costa Brava and its charming villages
The towns of the Costa Brava, its landscapes, its coves and beaches of sand and stones, among many other corners, assure us a spectacular environment worthy of the enjoyment of nature. Towns like Tossa de Mar, a town not too far from Lloret de Mar, has special attraction.
Tossa de Mar is located in the middle of the Costa Brava; There we find the village with its outstanding old quarter, where stands the medieval castle. A medieval castle that is situated just above a cliff that touches the beach of Tossa de Mar; In fact if we are approaching Tossa de Mar by the road of Sant Feliu de Guíxols, we will also quickly distinguish the turret of the castle of Tossa de Mar; All this without paying attention to the beautiful beach of Tossa, where we can bathe or start swimming to other beautiful beaches and coves of Tossa to be able to dive and enjoy its seabed.
We follow the visit of corners of the Costa Brava, and we find Calella de Palafrugell, one of the most beautiful corners of the coast of the Costa Brava. Calella de Palafrugell is an old fishing village; This town is one of the few centers of the Costa Brava where the charm that was breathed in all the villages of the Costa Brava is preserved, before the arrival of tourism everywhere. Most of the houses are white, thus respecting the origin of the town; On the other hand, if you have the privilege of being able to see Calella de Palafrugell from the sea, you will be able to enjoy the spectacle that is to see the sea and the beach melt into the town, and that this is fading into the mountains.
We can conclude that most of the towns of the Costa Brava have their charm; For that reason we are ready to introduce you to other corners that are sure to not disappoint you.
Cap de Creus Natural Park
We start with the Natural Park of Cap de Creus, located to the north of the Costa Brava, and a little far from Lloret de Mar, although the excursion of a day will be worth it if you want to go to visit this space. In any case, a good visit to the Costa Brava should include a good walk along the Cap de Creus; Its extraordinary relief opens doors to the sea, thus offering spectacular views; At the same time it houses many fauna, which look for a quiet space to settle in the middle of nature.
The Cap de Creus will take us to Cadaqués, one of the most famous villages on the Costa Brava; Cadaqués is located on the coast of Cap de Creus, and as you may well imagine, was a fishing village. In this nucleus we find the white color in most houses of the town, and the white houses paint the landscape of sea and mountain, and from there is born in part the great charm of this heritage of the Costa Brava. Painters like Salvador Dalí, Picasso or Miró passed through this town and were inspired by the monumentality of the maritime environment.
The Gulf of Roses
Finally, within the Gulf of Roses, a very beautiful space, we find the Aigüamolls de l'Empordà, a spectacle of nature; The space of the Aigüamolls de l'Emporda is highly valued by natural factors, but it is rarely appreciated that there we can find the magic of nature in vivo, colors, water, plants, birds, different sounds ... all this allows us to know And enjoy a space on the Costa Brava very different from what we have seen so far; Tranquility, silence, solitude, pure nature, ... all this will be what we can find in this protected space.
