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.

Blanes is known as the "Gateway to the Costa Brava". Blanes is a popular tourist town for Catalan and Spanish. It is known for the Concurs de Focs d'Artifici during the Santa Anna festival; this event includes a lot of fireworks. Other places of interest include a botanical gardens, coves, such as the Cala Bona, and beaches which are surrounded by mountains.

In the 1950's Hollywood came to Tossa de Mar!. James Mason and Ava Gardner filmed "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman", making the village a tourist attraction. It was then she began her love affair with Spain (and matadors). . . moving to Madrid and staying for 8 years.

A Recent Review of this tour

We spent another great day with Francisco going to Pals, seeing the countryside This is what we requested but we did not realize that Pals is so far but not worth the 2 hour drive (not Francisco's choosing). We did spend time at Tosso Del Mar, swam and toured the medieval area which was fabulous. Francisco was terrific and drove very well. We can once again recommend his services which were always excellent.
