The first stop of our trip is the old town on Costa Brava - Blanes, a famous resort with rich history and cleanest beaches. Here you can see the medieval observation tower, walk along ancient streets, but the really unique sight of the town is the botanical garden Mar i Murtra. It was founded in early 20th century by the botanical enthusiast Carl Faust and it is a spacious park holding a collection of over 3000 plants and an unbelievably beautiful landscape.
Then we go to Tossa de Mar – a wonderful town where luxurious modern beaches coexist with medieval architecture. The main attraction here is the fortress town Villa Vella built in the 12th century. Surrounded by a fortress wall with seven towers , this citadel adds special flavor to the town. Marc Chagall used to call Tossa de Mar "Azure Paradise" and frequently came here for inspiration; today his works are displayed in the local museum, where there are also ancient Roman exhibits.
After the walk in the town you will have free time for lunch and souvenir shopping, after which we will go to the next stop of our trip – Lloret de Mar, to walk along the embankment, admire the marine panorama and optionally visit the Cala Banys harbor.
Towards evening you can visit the wine palace and taste the famous Spanish wines, which will be a proper ending to the trip to Costa Brava.
