Costa Brava holidays

Picture of Begur, Costa Brava, Spain

A stretch of spectacular pine-clad rocky coastline interspersed with fine sandy bays is a guide book description of Spain's Costa Brava. The Costa Brava, I hear you say? The home of such busy holiday resorts as highly developed Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar? The description is correct and proof that there is much yet for the holidaymakers to discover on Spain's most northerly sunshine coast, one of the most popular Spanish destinations for British holidaymakers.

The Costa Brava, meaning Wild Coast, stretches 65 kilometres north east of Barcelona to the French border. The pine-clad and rocky coastline gives it that wild look but a family equipped with a car can seek out the many wide beaches or small sandy coves among the many resorts of which Rosas, San Pedro Pescador and S'Agaro are just a sample.

Barcelona is not only the Catalonian region's capital but also Spain's second city. The port city has a long history and thus many interesting sights to explore. As well as an aerial tramway up a local mountain for panoramic views of the city, there are also the quirky spires of Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia church. The old city comprises of historic, baroque-style buildings and the long promenade, the Ramblas, has cafes, restaurants and bird and flower markets. The historic waterfront boasts not only the biggest monument in the world to Christopher Columbus, but also a maritime museum.

Gerona city is the main populated area at the heart of the province that shares its name with many historical buildings - one being the cathedral in the main square and a Jewish Quarter of narrow streets and interesting shops. The Quart District is the place for buying local crafts, particularly the traditional and locally created black and green ceramics. The city has an art museum and history seekers can find the Roman baths and the ancient Sant Pere de Galligants church.

When in this northern part of Spain, families can pop inland to the Pyrenees mountain range that separates France and Spain, and even in the summer months they can go skiing. Facilities and ski systems around the main mountain town of Lleida are the best in Spain, and just a few miles away is the mini-state of Andorra. Perched high in the Pyrenees it has a number of attractions, tax-free shopping and skiing among them.
