COSTA BRAVA

In the middle of natural tranquillity and just minutes away from the vivid vibe of city life and popular beaches, Mas Torroella offers you a wide variety of recreational and cultural activities available in the region.

The Costa Brava goes from the French border to the mouth of the Tordera River near Barcelona is much more than a string of beaches, coves and cliffs which form a rugged but friendly coastline.

A transit point for different cultures and a gateway to the Iberian Peninsula first for the Greeks and then for the Romans, the land of the Costa Brava is steeped in history and tradition, apart from its spectacular landscape of lush Mediterranean vegetation.

Its tourism dates back to the early 20th Century when the writer Ferran Agulló baptized it with its name by which it has now become internationally renowned.

It has a wide range of natural areas inland and on the coast that comprise an unsurpassable landscape: the Montgrí nature reserve, the Illes Medes and el Baix Ter, the Cap de Creus nature reserve and that of the marshlands of l´Empordà.

It has towns and cities with a great tradition of tourism, such as Roses, Begur, Palafrugell, Palamós, Platja d`Aro, Sant Feliu de Guíxols or Lloret de Mar; and sea-faring towns such as Llançà, Cadaqués, L`Escala, Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc or Tamariu.

In terms of heritage, it has archaeological areas of great interest such as Empúries or Ullastret, legacies or Roman settlers such as Sant Pere de Rodes, or mediaeval towns like Peralada, Pals or Peratallada.

In the main cities inland, such as Girona, we find the Gothic cathedral, the Jewish quarters and the old district; in Figueres, the Dalí and Toy Museums.
