Detailed description Also in other languages:

Costa Brava is a coastal region of northeastern Spain, stretching from Barcelona to the French border, in the province of Girona (the autonomous community of Catalonia). Costa is the Spanish and Catalan word for 'coast' and "Brava" means "Rugged".

In the 1950s the Costa Brava was identified by Spain’s Franco government as being suitable for substantial development as a holiday destination, mainly for tourists from Northern Europe and especially the United Kingdom. The combination of a very good summer climate and excellent beaches was exploited by the construction of large numbers of hotels and apartments in such seaside resorts as Tossa de Mar, Lloret de Mar and Estartit. Tourism rapidly took over from fishing as the principal business of the area
