Art & Culture

The Costa Brava, named by Ferran Agulló in the early twentieth century, is a region of the NE of Catalonia, known for its rugged landscape, as its name implies.

While most towns on the Costa Brava have been devoted to the development of large-scale tourism, others have retained their traditional looks, captivating intellectuals and artists of all time, leaving their footprints.
