The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
This part of the region includes the whole area surrounding the city. One of its cultural gems is the most extensive museum to be dedicated to the work of Dali. The Teatro Museo De Salvador Dali is located in the artist's home town, Figueres.
Moving further north towards the Albera boundary of the region, we find interesting towns such as Espolla, Vilamalla, Cabanes, Navata, Darnius. Perelada particularly stands out with its medieval centre and castle, in which the well known and loved summer festivals are held.
As well as enjoying the natural and artistic beauty of this area, sporting visitors can also take advantage of some of the best golf courses in Europe, for example in Torremirona or Peralada.
The Barrio Gotico or Gothic Quarter is the heart of old town Barcelona and one of the best preserved medieval quarters in Europe, with various Roman remains to be found.
The area itself is a body of pedestrian, interconnecting, narrow cobble stoned streets where you can wander around aimlessly for hours, taking in all the wonderful bars and cafes, restaurants and shop as well as Barcelona’s very famous “La Catedral” (gothic cathedral) which is magnificent and a must see for all visitors.
There is another very distinguished - but less visited Gothic church in this area also, the Santa Maria del Pi. The quiet and attractive Plaça del Pi in front of the church is filled with bars and restaurants with outside seating where a cup of coffee goes down well while watching the quirky street performers which congregate to entertain the visitors most days. The Municipal government (Ajuntament) and Catalan regional government (Generalitat) are in this area standing opposite each other.
Plaça Reial is a well known spot, popular for its bars and restaurants and visitors can enjoy outdoor meals in one of the many eateries to be found, (beware of pickpockets!) Here we find the only work a young Gaudí designed for the city council, the Tres Gràcies fountain in the centre and lamp-posts around the plaza.
Although the Gotico is not as incredibly “cool” as the Born or as bohemian as the Raval, it is nonetheless an essential port of call.
