Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is a cosmopolitan Mediterranean city that incorporates in its urban street pattern Roman remains, medieval districts and the most beautiful examples of Modernism and 20th century avant-garde art. Not for nothing were the emblematic buildings of Catalan architects Antoni Gaudí and Luis Doménech I Montaner declared to be World Heritage Sites by UNESCO
The Costa Brava stretches for about 206 km from Portbou up at the French border right down the seaside town of Blanes. The rugged, jagged shoreline starts in the north with the Albera Mountains and the Cap de Creus, where the Pyrenees crash down to the sea, and ends with long sandy beaches in the south.
The Costa Brava is one of the most beautiful areas of Catalonia and probably the whole of Spain. The crystal waters of the Mediterranean and its interior are overlooked by the spectacular and mighty Pyrenees. Golf in the Costa Brava is second to none and it has received the distinction of being the world's best emerging golf destination.
The Costa Del Sol welcomes more than two million people a year who arrive at Malaga international airport and head to one of the many resorts located along this stretch of coastline from Gibraltar in the west to Nerja in the east.
The most well-known resorts lie west of Malaga beginning with Torremolinos, Benalmadena, Fuengirola and Mijas Costa. Further along the coast lies Marbella with its famous marina at Puerto Banus, Estepona, Sotogrande and finally Gibraltar.
There are around 70 Costa del Sol golf courses on the "Costa del Golf" which can be played all year round as well as a whole range of other activities available such as sailing, scuba diving, horse riding, dolphin safaris, etc. The list is endless.
