CULTURE ON THE COSTA BRAVA
The Spanish, Greeks, Romans, Muslims, Franks and Christians have all left their mark here. Some examples are the archaeological remains of the Greco-Roman city of Empúries, the Spanish town of Ullastret and the medieval towns of Pals, Peratallada and Monells. All areas embraced under the name of “Empordà”This was also home to the exceptional writer Josep Pla and one of our most widely known painters, Salvador Dalí. It is also the home to great gurus of Catalan cuisine like Ferrán Adrià and outstanding restaurants such as the Celler de Can Roca, managed and directed by the Roca brothers in Girona.
