Who wants to go to the seaside? Welcome to the Mediterranean-vibed laid back Costa Brava, the most inspiring section of coastline in Catalonia, and definitely one of the most relevant in Spain. Here, neverending pine tree forests meet the deep blue ocean (or sea, in this case), touched by tiny fishing villages with white houses, and rocky cliffs hide hardly accessible small beaches and sea caves. This landscape has inspired so many artists in the past, and Dalí was probably the most renowned of them. One last thing makes the equation perfect to us: wine. The region is home to one of the Catalan Denominations of Origin we find in Spain, DO Empordà, nowadays in real rise. What else do you need? Allow the embracing sea breeze in your journey by visiting this region in a full day tour from Barcelona!
Let your English-speaking local guide take you up north to Barcelona, in a journey that will take you to this fascinating and popular region in Catalonia. An equally long and satisfying day lies ahead of you, in which you are going to visit three different spots, if not arranged in a different way.
No visit to this area is complete without learning about one of the most important Spanish artists in the Dalí Museum, in Figueres. This beautiful town is the capital of the Alt Empordà region, and it is home to many Catalan cultural and artistic landmarks. Discover here the particular world this genius created and enjoy walking around the charming streets of this town, the artist’s hometown and an important historical city in Catalonia.
Costa Brava is home to many beautiful fishing villages touched by the Mediterranean breeze and its unbeatable gastronomy, famous worldwide. Let us take you to one of this inspiring little corners of our coastline, where you will enjoy a three-course local lunch and some free time strolling down the streets.
Yes, we are leaving the best for the last. No tour of ours is up to the task without dropping by a boutique, family owned winery with the richest flavours to discover. Grab that glass of wine and let the experts talk to you about their soils, their local grape varieties and the warm and pleasant climate thanks to which they obtain their precious wines. Enjoy a wine tasting of their best wines before going back to Barcelona as you look through the window and try to keep hold of every memory you lived today.
