VISUAL STORY

PALMTREES OF BARCELONA

Barcelona - one of the cities of the Mediterranean basin with the most street or roadside trees. These are a vital part of the city's green heritage with major environmental and social benefits for the area, such as the way in which they regulate solar radiation, reduce temperature and suspended particulates or act as a sound filter in public spaces.

Barcelona is a fountain of courtesy, shelter of strangers, hospice to the poor, land of the valiant, avenger of the offended, reciprocator of firm friendship, a city unique in its location and beauty.
— Don Quixote, 1605

What is the fatal charm of Italy? What do we find there that can be found nowhere else? I believe it is a certain permission to be human, which other places, other countries, lost long ago.
— Erica Jong, American novelist.

NATURAL SWIMMING POOL

The bay is a large and wonderful natural swimming pool. The sea bed is mostly sandy and water becomes soon deep, up to two metres and half and the mix of sand and rock makes water crystal clear, creating a corner of paradise with unforgettable colours.

THE CLIFFS

The cliffs, almost twenty metres high and dropping sheer into the turquoise sea, overlook the small tourist port.

MAGICAL ATMOSPHERE

In the north and in the south of the bay, the sea stacks, shaped by the water, come out of the crystal clear sea, creating a magical atmosphere. This part of the coast is also jagged, full of caves and small caves to visit.
