A proud nation within a nation
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, a region with its own language, character, and history. The city itself could keep you occupied for weeks as it as an energetic work of art in progress, much the same as Gaudi's Sagrada Familia, but just outside it are fantastic sandy beaches, groovy and trendy Sitges or the relaxing scenery of the Montserrat mountain range. Catalonia hosts an impressive abundance of natural wonders, from the Pyrenean peaks to endless plains, meadows and fertile vineyards, and rocky coves punctuating sandy beaches with transparent and mild Mediterranean waters.
Costa Brava rugged coast is without a doubt one of the less known treasures of Spain and is considered by beach lovers as Spain's prettiest coast. A scene which surpasses all expectations: here you find everything, from green mountains, wide sandy beaches, unspoiled coves, charming seaside villages and designer shops, to Greek and Roman ruins, excellent vineyards, and wineries, and both Michelin starred restaurants and traditional local delights.
A modern city, a pioneer in innovation where creativity, art, and design is visible in every corner

An intricate historical city with cobbled streets and imposing medieval walls.
Girona, a labyrinthine city with a long 2000 years history, believed to be founded around 76 bc. The city provides a refreshing medieval scenery to the more hedonist nearby Costa Brava. Girona features an outstanding walled medieval quarter, the Barri Vell, which spreads along a hill above the city centre. Its narrow cobbled alleyways, shady squares and colorful balconied houses are a delight to explore. Clinging to the banks of the Ríu Onyar, which divides the city in two as it meanders through the centre of town, you will find a long row of picturesque colorful houses known as the Cases de l’Onyar. We personally love to wander the narrow streets of the old town, considered the best preserved medieval Jewish quarter in Spain, to soak up the historical atmosphere.
A hidden popular secret famous for its bleaming white washed traditional houses and picturesque scenery.
COBALT BLUE AND BLEAMING WHITE
The light and vivid colours of Cadaqués also attracted Picasso and Miró but the town was the bedrock of Dalí’s Catalan soul. It was in almost all his pictures. Only here he dared remove his trademark clown’s mask. He was born in Figueres but his father owned a Cadaqués villa. The infant surrealist said he knew every rock on Cadaqués beach. This is the archetypal landscape of Dalí’s surreal world.
