Spanish singer Enrique Bunbury performs at the 2012 Cap Roig on August 17th
With Mother Nature as their backdrop, the Cap Roig Gardens and Castell Peralada are the locations for two of the biggest music and dance festivals in the region.
The first makes the most of the Costa Brava landscape with an outdoor setting that can host up to 2,000 people. Over 20 national and international artists will be performing this year at Cap Roig and while you may have missed Tony Bennett and Bob Dylan, there is still a range of world-class artists to look forward to. These include Alejandro Sanz, Joaquín Cortés and James Morrison, to name but a few.
Further away from Barcelona but worth the extra mileage thanks to the spectacular castle setting, Peralada will this month welcome the Deutsche Oper de Berlin performing Don Giovanni, Sara Baras paying homage to the Spanish constitution of 1812, La Pepa, and Harry Connick, Jr.
