From the southern tip of Catalonia to the French border, the Mediterranean will be the focal point of this multicoloured route bathed in the blues of the sea, the greens of the forest, the whites and browns of the towns and the innumerable colours of the beaches all along the route.

Leaving Ulldecona you will head towards the coast, which will lead you to the Ebro Delta, an international refuge for fauna and flora and a traditional rice growing and seafood area. The infinite beaches of the Costa Daurada are broken only by the silhouette of the PortAventura roller coasters until reaching Tarragona, the old Roman capital of Hispania.

Tamarit Castle marks the beginning of extensive beaches and successive towns and ports to the Garraf Massif, where Sitges, the cradle of “indianos” – the label by which Catalans who had made fortunes in the Americas during the colonial era were known – still retains the remains of an artistic past and a bohemian and festive life. The Llobregat Delta will add the natural and tranquil counterpoint to the hectic life of the city of Barcelona, the central point of this route.

The beaches continue all along the Maresme, dotted with seaside towns. The Tordera River crossing will mark the entrance to the Costa Brava, where mountain and sea embrace and the trees bathe in the most spectacular places. Tracing curves you will leave Palamós and the inlets of Begur to enter the Empordà plain and its medieval villages to skirt the Montgrí Massif.

In Empúries, one of the first Greek settlements on the Iberian Peninsula, you will once again meet the sea before crossing the Empordà marshes and heading towards Llançà, where again curves and more curves will take you to Portbou, for many years the gateway to Europe and the final point on this route.
