Airport
“Stretching north east from the coves and beaches of Blanes to Catalonia's border with France, the Costa Brava is Spain's most beautiful coastline. This 1,240-mile coast of ragged cliffs and idyllic beaches is one of Europe's favorite seaside playgrounds, and its pretty little whitewashed towns have lured artists that include Dali, Picasso, and Marc Chagall. Sandy beaches, like the one at the colorful old fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell, are tucked into coves beneath the cliffs, and other towns, such as Santa Susanna, have a choice of several beaches, from busy strands filled with sunbathers and kiosks to quiet coves and beaches equipped for watersports and sailing. ”

History Museum
“This house, a surviving example of the traces of the indianos −those who left for Cuba or the West Indies and came back once they had made their fortune− is one of the few remaining ones in Lloret, together with Casa Font or Can Comadran, right in the heart of the old part of the town.”
