Have you been to Costa Brava, Spain? If you are the typical American, the answer to that question is no. Costa Brava has long been a favorite vacation spot for Europeans but is relatively undiscovered by most Americans. Costa Brava is along the Mediterranean coast south of Barcelona. It is definitely one of the places to see before you die. The region has it all from wine country, to spectacular beaches, to fascinating museums, to abundant nightlife.
Costa Brava is a spectacular 135-mile stretch of the Mediterranean between Barcelona and the French border. Its picturesque beaches and laid-back but lively nightlife have long made it a popular vacation spot for Spaniards and for the French for decades.
Costa Brava offers a lesson in history every where you turn. Some good examples are the medieval villages of Pals, Besalu and Santa Pau. Stepping into the towns is like turning the clock back to another time.
