blanes the costa brava's gateway
Blanes is known as the gateway of the Costa Brava, since it’s where it begins. It has a large rock in the sea called Sa Palomera which divides the city in two: the center and “Els Pins”. The town has more than 1.000 years of history, like its old castle that you will find going up the hill called Sant Joan. From up there you will enjoy the panoramic views of the bay and of the Costa Brava coastline, which is 256 km long, starting from the Delta del Tordera (Barcelona) and ending at Portbou, the closest town to the french border.
