Figueres if names mean anything at all, it means everything about Costa Brava. Often translated as "wild coast," Costa Brava is paradise not only for the wild-spirited and wild at heart, but also for those who are simply looking for something a little out of the ordinary. It has something to suit everyone: fun parties, exciting water adventures, along with peaceful villages and a quiet time sunbathing - all to satisfy the needs of couples, singles and families, of all ages. On top of such captivating scenery, Costa Brava holidays offer the best of modern amenities and nightlife. There's football, squash and tennis for the conservative, with parasailing, diving and surfing for those in search of action and adventure.

Figueres is located on a small hill called Puig Garrigal, 39 meters above sea level, although the highest point of the municipality is the Sant Ferran Castle, at 140 meters.
At its feet runs the Galligants torrent, which brings rainwater from the western commas to the manol. It is worth saying that this municipal area, which covers 18 km2, is located at the entrance to the Principality, and this gives it a cosmopolitan character. The service sector and trade are its economic base.

The Romans settled in these lands and crossed it with a road known as Via Dometiana and Via Augusta that passed through the lower part of the municipal area of ​​Figueres.
The news of medieval Figueres begins in the year 943 when the town had been urbanized around the hill of Sant Pere where there was a small Romanesque church dependent on the county of Besalú. In 1267, King Jaume, to weaken the power of the Count of Empúries, granted Figueres the Settlement Charter that turned it into a Royal Villa, which entailed a series of advantages that, little by little, brought it to the regional capital Like all medieval towns, Figueres was surrounded by walls built on the sides of the main streets. In this case, that of Besalú, Pujada del Castell, Canigó and La Jonquera. The present Plaza de l'Ajuntament was the cattle fair and was outside the walls.

It was granted the Fira de Santa Creu in the 15th century (1419), an engine of commercial expansion that favored all kinds of commercial transactions and the development of the city. On the occasion of the Treaty of the Pyrenees, the town of Figueres became the first important town to enter Catalan lands. In the 18th century between 1753 - 1766 it was decided to build the castle of Sant Ferrant, a large military fortification with capacity for a garrison of 6,000 men. The structure has a star shape that brings us back to the typical military construction of the Baroque.

Figueres History

In the 19th century (1875) the town of Figueres was granted the title of city and, perhaps for this reason, it took on the task of giving a great urban boost with the completion of the covering of the stream that formed Rambla. A municipal theater was built which, today, houses the Dalí Museum Theatre, recognized throughout the world as one of the most important spaces in surrealist artistic content as well as in terms of number of visitors. Another important event for the city was the arrival of the railway in 1877, which is why Plaça del Gra, a symbolic piece of the city, was covered.
