In the province of Girona there are some localities (Banyoles, Lloret de Mar and Castelló d'mpúries) who received the title of Sports Tourism Destination. This category awards the Catalan Tourism Agency, which means that these places have high quality infrastructure and services for sports.
In the case, Banyoles opened the Tourism Office in 2006 (www.banyoles.cat / tourism) in the remodeled fishery Sarquella. This is the main arrival point for most tourists in Banyoles. This construction had a purely practical function to be able to fish. But then evolved increasing surface so that it could store a boat, a sign of wealth and social class.
Most of the activities organized in Banyoles revolve around water sports: rowing, canoeing, swimming, triathlon and jogging.
In Castelló d'Empúries (www.castelloempuriabrava.com) also we can find water activities and water sports: sailing, kayaking, etc.
With the advantage of its location in the Emporda, Castelló d'Empúries located in the Bay of Roses, surrounded by the natural park of the Empordà. So the activities are multiplied: skydiving, wind tunnel, cycling routes, golf and hiking paths.
Lloret de Mar (www.lloretdemar.org) also received the award for multisport destination as it offers a range of sports and concentrated in a single multi sports center, surrounded by shopping, hotels and 800 meters from the beach. In Lloret de Mar you can practice a wide variety of sports, including football, basketball, athletics, handball, hockey and cycling, among others.
