The Costa Brava “wild coast” is the coastal region of northeastern Catalonia in the province of Girona in Spain. The Costa Brava stretches from Blanes only 60 km from Barcelona) to French border.
This concept was introduced by a local journalist at the beginning of the 20th century to describe the rugged landscape characteristic of this coastal region. In the 50’s, the tourism phenomenon widespread in the Costa Brava and it was exploited by the construction of large numbers of hotels and apartments in several seaside resorts.
Tourism rapidly took over from fishing as the principal business of the area.
While part of the Costa Brava coastline lent itself to tourist developments on a very large scale, other parts have retained a more traditional look. This wonderful part of the Catalonian coast inspired great artists such as Picasso, Klein and Marc Chagall, but it was surely Dalí who brought international fame to this corner of the Mediterranean.
Barcelona city is only 60 km away of main venue of our tournaments in Costa Brava. Located on the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona is perhaps the most dynamic and innovative of Mediterranean cities.
Few Mediterranean cities can boast of such architectural richness, such urban organization, such culture, such transformations and such modernity as can offer Barcelona. Barcelona have a great cultural offer, with several interesting museums like Fundación Joan Miró or the Museo Picasso, but where you really can appreciate the art of this city is walking around its charming streets. The well known Sagrada Familia or the Parc Güell are only some examples of the marks who left Antonio Gaudí on Barcelona as to transform it. But Barcelona is not only art and culture, it offer also sunny beaches combined with an attractive gastronomic offer.
For football fans, a visit to the spectacular “Camp Nou” Stadium of the FC Barcelona is mandatory.
Located between see and mountains, Girona have a privileged location. The old town “barri vell” is one of the best historic centers of Catalonia, with genuine elements unique in Europe like the caroling wall or the Jewish quarter, one of the better conserved and the grandiosity of the Cathedral’s gothic nave, the widest in the world.
Girona is a great city for amusement in different aspects: the streets, local festivities, cultural offer, restaurants, touristic services, events, festivals
The visit of this fantastic city can be a perfect combination with a visit to the Dali Theatre and Museum in Figueres, one of the most important and visited museums in Catalonia.
