The Costa Brava is the northeastern part of the Spanish Mediterranean coast which belongs to the province of Girona. It extends over a length of 214 kilometers from the French border to the Costa del Maresme, which already belongs to Barcelona. The name "Costa Brava" (Wild Coast) probably derives from the rocky parts of the coastline. There are however also beautiful bays, in which the best known holiday resorts are located.

The scenic beauty of the region attracted many artists such as Marc Chagall, Picasso, Rusiñol, Salvador Dali and Hollywood film stars.
