The Costa Brava – literally the 'rugged coast', in reference to the rocky, inhospitable nature of much of the shore – runs from the French border southwards towards Barcelona. Behind the coast lie the Serralada Litoral and Serralada Prelitoral.These ranges include such varied landscapes as the extraordinary conglomerate pinnacles of Montserrat, the dormant volcanoes of the Garrotxa and the subalpine heights of the Montseny. It is this very variety, coupled with its proximity to Barcelona and the coastal towns, that makes exploring the Costa Brava hinterland so attractive.As well as their favourite drives, the authors describe what they believe to be the best walks in this part of Catalonia – from the classic routes that form part of the repertoire of any self-respecting Catalan walker to some of their personal favourites well off the beaten track.
