Portbou The Essential
Portbou, an important tourist centre, is also one of Spain's main border posts, especially for rail traffic. The coast here is particularly spectacular. Whichever way you approach the village, either along the N260 from Figueres, or along the magnificent Colera road, enjoy fine views of one of the most dramatic coastlines in Catalonia. Tall cliffs and unspoilt inlets are among the main attractions along this rugged section of the Costa Brava.
