XVII Costa Brava Line Dance Festival

11-14 Maig/May, 2017. Palafrugell (Costa Brava, Spain)

THE TOWN

Our festival is held in Palafrugell (Girona, Spain). Palafrugell is located in privileged surroundings at the heart of the Costa Brava. With a population of around 23,000 inhabitants, this is the largest town in the region. The original town of Palafrugell is at the centre of the present municipality, which is shared with the rural centres of Santa Margarida, Ermedàs and Llofriu at the foot of the Gavarres Hills, along with the coastal villages of Calella, Llafranc, Tamariu and Aigua Xelida. This town today mainly lives of tourism and is ideally located between the sea and the hinterland.

The centre of Palafrugell brings together the cultural and commercial activity. Accessible only on foot, the area around the church and the old walls offer a peaceful stroll visiting the shops, bars, restaurants, museums and foundations just a few minutes away.

THE VENUE

The venue where the Festival is held is called "La Bòbila". It was built in 1916 and it used to be a warehouse of a very important Cork industry in town. Since 1993 it is owned by the municipality. It was restored in 2011 and it is now a great venue to celebrate lots of festivals.
