Why La Bisbal, and not Barcelona? Why Costa Brava for creative travel, you may ask?
“Well, Elena. Did you know that La Bisbal d’Empordà has the highest per capita percentage of artists after Barcelona?!”, Anna tells me enthusiastically, and smiles. Anna: She is the most warm-hearted, talented, and creative person you can imagine to meet, and you will want to meet her when you come!
A good hour north of Barcelona, and only a short drive east from Girona, the creative capital of La Bisbal d’Empordà has put forward an initiative called “VisitEmpordaNet“. It highlights “the most authentic Empordà”, such as making your own ceramics with local artists, meeting traditional cheese makers, tasting and cooking local delights, or riding your own pony through a poppy field ..!
“And this is exactly what we want you to enjoy”, Anna keeps telling me in her sweet local voice, talking to me in Catalan all along. “That La Bisbal, and the entire Baix Empordà region, is a country full of artists, most of them ceramic artists, for the excellent quality of the local clay soils found around here.”
