Creative tourism to the authentic heart of the Empordà region, in Costa Brava

In the most authentic part of the Empordà region, you will find the greatest concentration of craftspeople on the Costa Brava as well as a fair number of artists inspired by the north wind, known as the tramuntana. We suggest you make the most of the opportunity that some of these craftspeople and artists offer by opening the doors of their workshops to share their passion with you.

Listen to and appreciate the time and work there is behind each unique piece made with their hands or, if you’re bold enough, try and make one yourself, following their advice.
