Discover the best of Costa Brava in just 48 hours


Whether you are coming from Barcelona or Girona you'll have to visit one of the most beautiful places in the Mediterranean.

In just 48 hours (even though it's not long) you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty, artistic heritage, and medieval history that this region proudly showcases. Here’s how you can make the most of your extension from Girona into the wild, untamed beauty of Costa Brava.

Day 1: From Surrealist Escapes to the Jewel of the Mediterranean

Morning: The Surreal World of Dalí in Portlligat

Begin your journey with a departure from the familiar cobblestone streets of Girona to the small, enchanting town of Portlligat. Here, the Salvador Dalí House-Museum awaits, an essential pilgrimage for any admirer of art or the surreal. This labyrinth of fishermen’s huts turned surrealist masterpiece offers a window into Dalí's genius. Explore the whimsical rooms, eccentric sculptures, and the artist’s studio, all set against the backdrop of breathtaking Mediterranean views.

Afternoon: The Charms of Cadaqués

A short journey from Portlligat brings you to Cadaqués known to be the prettiest town in Costa Brava , where once home to artists and pirates alike. Wander through the old town’s narrow lanes, lined with whitewashed houses and blooming bougainvillea. The church of Santa Maria, with its stunning baroque altar, offers a tranquil sanctuary. Take your time to savor a leisurely lunch at one of the seaside restaurants, indulging in fresh, local seafood and the renowned Empordà wines.

Evening: Cap de Creus Natural Park

As the afternoon sun begins to soften, make your way to the Cap de Creus Natural Park. This is the land of wind-sculpted rocks and hidden coves, where the Pyrenees meet the sea. Hiking route no. 17 reveals the park’s geological wonders and secret beaches, perfect for an evening swim or simply to revel in the sunset’s golden hues. The Cap de Creus Lighthouse, standing sentinel over the Mediterranean, provides a picturesque end to your day’s explorations.

Day 2: Coastal Paths and Medieval Time Capsules

Morning: Coastal Wonders from Calella de Palafrugell to Llafranc

Greet the new day with a journey south to Calella de Palafrugell, where the Camí de Ronda awaits to guide you on a coastal adventure to Llafranc. This ancient path, once trodden by fishermen and smugglers, now serves as a scenic route linking charming seaside towns. The walk, offering stunning vistas of the rugged coastline and azure waters, encapsulates the essence of Costa Brava's natural beauty.

The route is not challenging although you will come across several sets of winding steps along the way and it takes about 20 minutes to conclude it. The views of the rocky coastline are stunning and even if you are not a walking person, this path will be the exception.

Afternoon: Stepping Back in Time in Pals and Peratallada

After a refreshing morning by the sea, step back in time with visits to the medieval towns of Pals and Peratallada.

While you could easily visit both on the same day, we would recommend opting for one or the other to experience the charming town to the fullest.

Each town, with its fortified walls, gothic courtyards, and ancient streets, tells its own story of centuries past. Whether you choose to delve into the artisan shops of Pals or wander the moat-surrounded streets of Peratallada, you’ll find yourself captivated by the history and charm that permeate every stone and shadow.

Concluding Your Journey

As your 48-hour sojourn from Girona to Costa Brava draws to a close, reflect on the myriad experiences that have marked your journey. From the surreal to the sublime, the ancient to the natural, this brief escape has likely only deepened your appreciation for the diverse tapestry of landscapes and cultures that define this corner of Catalonia.
