The Costa Brava remains one of the most beautiful seaside destinations in the Mediterranean, and one to which people never fail to return. It has turquoise coves framed by hills of pine trees and rocks, fishing villages combining authenticity and trendy addresses, Dalinian eccentricities and Catalan traditions.
The Costa Brava will forever be associated with the epic of the great master of surrealism, Salvador Dalí. The Catalan genius was born in 1904 and died in 1989 in Figueres. If you want to get acquainted with his whimsical world, don't miss the famous "Dalinian triangle", the artist's three mythical places in the region.
