Costa Brava was named by Ferran Agulló in an article published in a Catalan newspaper in September 1908. The journalist referred to the rugged landscape of the Girona Mediterranean coast. Costa is the Catalan and Spanish word for 'coast', while Brava means 'rugged' or 'wild'. This term was officially recognized and promoted in the 1960s as it was deemed suitable to promote tourism.
