The former playground of artists, the Costa Brava’s beauty lies not just in its breathtaking coastline, but in the charm of its many towns and hidden gems. While the coast is a must-see, the region is packed with intimate and enchanting experiences you won’t find on a postcard.
In the centre of Costa Brava lies the Montgri massif, along with the Gavaves and Guilleries mountain ranges. The Montgri massif, near to the mouth of the River Ter, separates the Alt Empordà from the Baix Empordà and juts out into the sea as far as the Medes Islands. Many unspoiled villages such as Cadaqués remain in the Costa Brava region and have managed to avoid the over-development that has plagued this area in recent decades. Costa Brava is one of the world’s premier cork-growing regions, supplying wine producers with a precious supply of corks. The cork oak tree is endemic to southwestern Europe and northern Africa. About 22 per cent of the world’s cork production comes from Spain. No wonder it`s the costa with the most.
