Concert Tours of Costa del Maresme
A relaxed and delightful concert tour destination offering wide beaches, small coves and ports and medieval hill-top towns
Between Barcelona and the Costa Brava is one of Europe’s hidden coasts. Do what the Barcelonians and the more savvy foreign tourists do and head to the Costa Maresme, which stretches north-east for 30 miles or so from just outside the city. Discover miles of wide, golden, sandy beaches. No wincingly painful pebbles or playing sardinas – the Maresme has a lot more space. The beaches are family-friendly, with many recreational areas and activities.
Still within reach of Barcelona you can enjoy smaller maritime towns like Malgrat de Mar, visit the Montserrat Monastery and step back in time at the historic walled city of Girona.
Reachable by coach overnight or a short flight and tour by Spanish coach, this area is a fantastic venue for those looking for music tour beyond the regular destinations.
There is a bounty of beautiful and original performance spaces to choose from on a concert tour to the region of Costa del Maresme. The region’s atmospheric venues welcome contented and appreciative audiences, as Spanish and visitors gather to enjoy evening concerts on warm summer nights.
