Costa Brava, Catalonia’s famous "rugged coast," is an interesting mixture of rocky cliffs and picture-perfect sandy beaches. One of the country’s three major coastline vacation destinations, Costa Brava has an incredibly diverse marine life and draws considerable tourism for some of the finest scuba diving spots in the country. But its biggest attractions may very well be its inland stone villages and towns, many of which feature well-preserved medieval structures and extremely narrow cobblestone streets. Here, see numerous sites associated with the life and work of Salvador Dalí, the country’s renowned surrealist artist.
