“Costa Brava”

Route POI
Index card


A beautiful postcard image that gives the Costa Brava its name. The cliffs and the Cap de Mort peak are just ahead, with the Les Mestresses (the schoolteachers) lookout point above.

The fragmentation of the blocks of granite causes large blocks of rock to fall to the sea forming reefs. Below at the shore, under the largest rock, we see to the entry to one of the caves of this sector called "Els Esculls de les Coves". There's a cave that can only be seen from the sea, which they say used to be a resting place for bats.


Behind us, the first cove is the Cala dels Mussols (bat cove).
