The name Costa Brava referring to the coast of Girona first appeared on 12th September 1908. It was published in La Veu de Catalunya paper.
No longer could its creator, Ferran Agulló, imagine that this part of the Mediterranean coast would vertiginously grow and become an international tourist center and the place chosen by high public figures (politicians, show people…) or even used as a set for cinema productions.
A lot of events have been organized to commemorate the Centenary of the Costa Brava.
