The Costa Brava and Costa Dorada

Visit our beautiful Catalonia regions

Catalonia

The Costa Brava is a 160 kilometer stretch of beautiful, rugged coastline in the region of Catalonia in the North East corner of Spain. Natural beauty, endless miles of sandy beaches and summer

sunshine. You'll find modern, international tourist resorts with high-rise hotels alongside unspoilt fishing villages, sheltered rocky coves and medieval towns with ancient castles.

 

Check out our Costa Brava Tours

 

 

The Costa Dorada or Costa Daurada (The Golden Coast) The color of gold - soft, warm and bright - is predominant along the marine littoral in the southern part of Catalonia and has rightly given it the name of Costa Dorada (Golden Coast). The 20 towns that make up the Costa Dorada cover a marine littoral 216 kilometers long, 786 hectares of spacious beaches with clean fine sand and transparent shallow water. Between the sea and the mountain range there are wide areas filled with peaceful towns and farmlands, where vineyards, olive groves, carobs, hazel trees and almond trees grow, and occasionally even vegetable gardens.

  1. Barcellona - Sandro Capece (15 Dec 2011 - 09:00)

    Sono circa 4 anni che mi reco, con una certa assiduità, a Barcellona. Da quando, cioè, le mie due figlie Chiara e Gaia, hanno deciso di trasferirvisi per lavoro e si sono così bene inserite nel tessuto cittadino, che quando Gaia ha deciso di fare un figlio, non è tornata a Roma, sua città natale, ma ha preferito far nascere la sua splendida Beatrix a Barcellona, sua città di adozione. Barcellona è una città meravigliosa, come i suoi abitanti. Col tempo, mi sono anch'io innamorato di questa città e della Catalunya in generale, tanto che l'anno prossimo mi trasferirò anch'io da quelle parti. Credo alla foce dell'Ebro. Spero di essere accettato con benevolenza dai cittadini di questa bellissima Regione, come è già avvenuto con le mie ragazze. A proposito, sono già tifoso, da diverso tempo, della squadra di calcio più forte del mondo: il BARCELLONA. A presto...........
