Art and Culture

While most towns on the Costa Brava have devoted themselves exclusively to developing their tourist attractions on a large scale, others have sought to preserve their essence and promote it for visitors looking for “something more” than sun and beach.

The preservation of traditions has captivated intellectuals and artists of all ages who have ended up leaving their mark on the territory. The Costa Brava is named after Ferran Agulló i Vidal, writer and journalist who first used this term in 1908 in one of his texts.

Roses is strategically located right in the middle of the so-called Dalí Triangle, formed by the Dalí Theater-Museum in Figueras, the Castle of Púbol in La Pera (where his wife, Gala, is buried) and the painter's house-museum in Portlligat near Cadaqués. History lovers will appreciate visiting the archaeological remains in Empúries, the small Romanesque churches in the region and the megalithic monuments scattered throughout the region.
