2018, Year of Cultural Tourism

The Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board declares 2018 Year of Cultural Tourism in the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees.

The Council of Europe has designated 2018 Year of Cultural Heritage in a bid to highlight the continent’s artistic and historical heritage. To mark the occasion, the Catalan Government’s Catalan Tourist Board and the Costa Brava Girona Tourist Board have declared 2018 Year of Cultural Tourism in order to promote and publicise the wealth of culture to be found in the Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees through a plan of specific actions.

The Costa Brava and Girona Pyrenees are the ideal destination for visitors who want first-hand experience of a land with a strong sense of identity, and who also appreciate the chance to interact with the local people as they go about their daily lives.

The main reasons that attract cultural tourists to the province of Girona are the visits to monuments built by past civilisations and to see contemporary architecture, themed tours and participation in traditional festivities and festivals.
