Catalonia is located in the northeastern corner of Spain and borders north to France. It is the richest region in Spain with more than 7 million inhabitants.
The capital Barcelona is a dynamic powerhouse for architecture, design and fashion and is considered to be one of the most exciting and progressive cities in Europe.
The region has its own flag and language, but everyone also speaks Spanish and many understand French or English.
The four red stripes in the Catalonian flag stand for the four provinces:
Barcelona, Girona, Lérida og Tarragona.
Platja d'Aro belongs to the province of Girona.
The climate at the coast is mild, the summer is long and the temperature does not reach the same unbearable heights as inland.
The season is from April through October. The Spaniards themselves holiday in August where there is a high season in Platja d'Aro.
Costa Brava - The wild coast - is the name of the line from Blanes and up to the French border. It is characterized by the rugged rugged cliffs, the almost endless series of small splendid idyllic beaches, and the azure Mediterranean, which sometimes rises and shows teeth. The stretch is considered one of the most beautiful in Spain.
A good way to experience the landscape is a boat trip with the little ferry crossing the coast, for example. from Platja d'Aro to Tossa de Mar.
Inside the hinterland are several well-preserved pleasant medieval towns, for example. Girona.
