The Costa Brava & Girona Pyrenees

The ideal territory for wine and food lovers

Just an hour’s drive from Barcelona, Girona is a unique foodie’s paradise. It is the region where Ferran Adrià, with his restaurant El Bulli, and the Roca brothers reinvented the world’s cuisine, and where culinary innovation continues on a stellar level at the sixteen restaurants boasting a total of twenty-one Michelin stars.

Come and discover our wines and time-honoured cuisine drawing on produce from the land and sea, which is the focus of any social occasion at restaurants, food and wine fairs and festivals throughout the region.

The Costa Brava & Girona Pyrenees is a land blessed by nature, where the mountains merge with the Mediterranean Sea and where the landscape provides a rich variety of produce all year round: DO Empordà wines and oils, rice from Pals, anchovies from L’Escala, red prawns, sea urchins, beans from Santa Pau, farmhouse cheeses and artisan charcuterie are the main protagonists at local markets and on our tables.

The DO Empordà Wine Route wineries and local farmers open their doors to welcome you with genuine experiences so that you can savour the full flavour of Girona at its most authentic.

These experiences are full of substance and identity. In Girona, gastronomy is not just a matter of eating and drinking but a whole way of life in itself that has become more and more popular with visitors to the point of becoming one of the region’s main tourist attractions thanks to the numerous food and wine experiences available.

We hope to see you soon! For further information:
