A distinct identity & a creative spirit

Tucked between the golden beaches of the Mediterranean and the dramatic peaks of the Pyrenees, Catalonia is an ancient and fiercely independent region. The Catalan language emphasises the distinct and proud identity of its citizens and despite its compact size, the area is full of contrasts. The hills and vineyards of the splendid natural landscapes drop to idyllic sands along the Costa Brava, its ancient towns shine with immaculately preserved historic architecture and flamboyantly designed buildings. The creative playground of Dalí and Gaudí, inspirational Catalonia is rich with a quirky and unique aesthetic.

Tossa de Mar

Tossa de Mar has developed from a pretty fishing village, with a network of narrow streets around its magnificent medieval castle. Accompanying the ancient alleyways is a bustling beach resort, with long stretches of golden sand.


This historic beauty has a beautiful walled old quarter, a labyrinth of narrow streets and a colourful riverbank, making it one of the most picturesque towns in Catalonia. Its compact and ancient centre is a joy to wander, with plenty of places to stop for a coffee or an ice cream.


Medieval Besalú is a hidden gem with a remarkably intact old town. Quaint and cobbled alleys spiral out from the centre, and the star of the town is its fortified 11th century bridge, which reflects in the glassy waters of the Riu Fluvià below.

Santa Pau

The distinctive little village of Santa Pau is a characterful place packed with medieval buildings. As well as having a charming centre of alleyways and arcades dating back to the 13th century, it enjoys a wonderful location on the Olot Plain, surrounded by the scenic dormant volcanoes of the Baixa Garrotxa Volcanic National Reserve.


Figueres is one of Catalonia’s most well-known towns, thanks to its famous son: Salvador Dalí. Dalí was born here and it is also the location of the surreal Dalí Museum-Theatre, the town’s star attraction. However, there is more to Figueres than Dalí. It has interesting museums, restaurants, an 18th century fortress and a graceful Rambla lined with cafés, which gives an authentic sense of a Catalan town.


Cadaqués is a dreamy little village strung with cobbled lanes, gleaming whitewashed houses and bursts of bright bougainvillea. This idyllic setting has drawn artists and intellectuals since the 1920s – Picasso, Dalí, Buñuel, Einstein, Man Ray, and Thomas Mann all spent time here, inspired by the wild coast and pebbled beaches. The bohemian feel of this picturesque town is complemented by a charming selection of galleries, restaurants and boutiques.

Team Comments:

“I was amazed by how compact and charming the resort of Tossa de Mar was. It was so easy to get around on foot, yet with its lovely old castle, historic quarter and sandy beaches there is plenty to see and do.”



The enchanting city of Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and an extravaganza of architectural exuberance, from the whimsical and magical creations of Gaudí to the spires of the Gothic Quarter. It is a cultural heavyweight, however this buzzing city offers much more than the arts. Vibrant and avant-garde in all aspects, it has a thriving gastronomic scene, leafy parks and it basks in its glorious position by the golden beaches of the Mediterranean.

Dalí Theatre-Museum

This unique spectacle with interactive exhibits displays a fascinating selection of paintings and sculptures by Dalí, and is also the artist’s final resting place. Designed by Dalí himself, the building is no less flamboyant on the outside, adorned with giant eggs and incorporating a geodesic dome.

Castle Perelada

Once the home of a medieval dynasty of viscounts, this dramatic location has been producing wine for centuries. At a wine tasting, sample the cava that acquires a rich and unique taste thanks to the surrounding landscapes where the grapes grow.

H·Top Amika, Calella

The welcoming and traditionally styled H·Top Amaika is a 4-star hotel in Calella, just a 5-minute walk away from the beach and resort centre. The hotel has an elegant dining room, spacious bar, and lounge, as well as leisure facilities which include an outdoor swimming pool, sauna, Jacuzzi and gym.
