Costa Brava

Costa Brava is a coastal region in northeastern of Iberian Peninsula, consisting of the comarques (counties) of Alt EmpordàBaix Empordà and Selva in the province of Girona. Costa Brava stretches from the town of Blanes, 60 km (37 mi) northeast of Barcelona, to the French border. In the 1950s, the Costa Brava was identified as being suitable for substantial development as a holiday destination, mainly for tourists from Europe. The combination of a very good summer climate, nature, excellent beaches and a favourable foreign exchange rate (before the creation of the single European currency), which made Costa Brava an attractive tourist destination, was exploited by the construction of large numbers of hotels and apartments in such seaside resorts as BlanesTossa de Mar and Lloret de Mar. Tourism rapidly took over from fishing as the principal business of the area.
