The Costa Brava offers a wide variety of festivals covering all types of music in the most suggestive settings.
Whether in botanical gardens overlooking the sea, public squares, beaches, monasteries, cloisters or historic sites, during the summer months the whole province is invaded by theatre, dance, opera, ballet and rock events of such quality that they have become world famous. These include the Cap Roig Gardens Festival in Palafrugell, the Castell de Peralada Festival, the Porta Ferrada Festival in Sant Feliu de Guíxols and the Torroella de Montgrí Festival, another leading European event for classical and lyrical music.
Classical music is also the focus of the festival held at the impressive Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, with stunning views of Cap de Creus, where piano and chamber music concerts are programmed in the church, with its exceptional acoustics.
Without forgetting the Schubertíada, a festival dedicated entirely to Franz Schubert, held in the medieval monastery of Santa Maria de Vilabertran. There are plenty of other festivals, including Sons del Món, Vi & Música in Roses-Castelló d’Empúries, Nits de Clàssica in Girona, Festival Portalblau in L’Escala, the Jazz Festival in L’Estartit-Torroella de Montgrí, the Begur Music Festival and Nits de Marimurtra, in the botanical garden of the same name in Blanes.
