Also known as the "Brave Coast", it is strewn with hidden coves and fascinating ports for fishing.

One such enthralment in Costa Brava is Begur, a town situated an hour away from north of Barcelona, not too far from the coves of Aiguablava, Aiguafreda and Tamariu, is a perfect concoction of traditional culture weaved perfectly with a modern vibe. Talk to any Barcelonan about a weekend getaway and you would hear Begur, being one of their finest holiday spot to unwind from their busy lives.

Standing at the top of the castle would give you bird's-eye view of the coastline spreading across in miles.
