Description
On this tour we will discover the coastal area of Girona, titled a 100 years ago as Costa Brava. The name is as a consequence of its exclusive rocky, rugged and cut shape coastline, comprised of little coves encompassed by pine forests and lapped by crystal water. We will discover the southern part of the Costa Brava visiting two villages that represent the essence of that coast. They are completely opposed but, at the same time, both complement each other perfectly. Consequently, we will go back to Barcelona with a complete idea of what Costa Brava is.

We will take the motorway to reach our first destination, Lloret de Mar, the main touristic village of Costa Brava. As soon as we get there we will experience its hustle and bustle. The city welcomes site visitors from across the world who are willing to enjoy its beaches, hotels, shops, fun-based activities and especially its lively nightlife. We will have about an hour to uncover this colorful and dynamic village with intense personality. Along its distinctive beach promenade we will have the ability to enjoy great views of its beaches, from the magnificent beach of Lloret to the hidden Sa Caleta. In addition, two small hills on both edges of the beach promenade are privileged view points throughout of the place and surroundings. Walking through its narrow streets, which still have reminiscence of its recent maritime past, we will find plenty of shops to suit all preferences: from the latest brands to the typical beach bazaars. In the middle of its most famous shopping street we will also be able to admire architectural jewels of great value such as Saint Roma, a church of an exquisite modernism style and inside the church, a 16th century altarpiece which is still very well preserved.

Next we will go on board the boat Dofijets, which will lead us to the neighboring village of Tossa de Mar. While sailing marvel the unique and characteristic landscape of Costa Brava: a display of different huge cliffs which have been shaped in fanciful forms over the centuries by the strength of sea and wind.

At about 12:00 p.m. we will get to the emblematic village of Tossa de Mar, regarded as “the pearl of Costa Brava” because in this small area we can find almost all of those landscape and historic elements which have given its well-deserved fame. Its breathtaking sceneries; from its shores, beaches and caves in the cliffs to its lush vegetation, turn it into certainly one of the locations that has best preserved its natural environment, in perfect harmony with the tourism industry. Nowadays it is the only existing model of a medieval fortification on the Catalan coast. Built at the beginning of the XIII century, it has been object of numerous refurbishments that have given it its current structure. Outside its walls we can find the traditional fishing neighborhood known as Sa Roqueta, which still keeps the sailor atmosphere of these typical villages on Costa Brava.

Once we arrive in Tossa de Mar, we will begin a walking tour from the beach, following the fortified perimeter up to the lighthouse on the top, for those who are interested. From there, you will appreciate stunning views of the coastline. When descending, we will walk past through the narrow streets and stony houses of Vila Vella until we get to the fishing district. From there on, you will have free time to have lunch. Doubtlessly, this village has the greatest gastronomic offer from all Costa Brava. Conclude this amazing Costa Brava tour by heading back towards Barcelona.
