Alquiler de vacaciones
La basílica de Santa María de Castellón de Ampurias, de estilo gótico, presenta la estructura y las dimensiones de una catedral. Por cierto, los condes de Ampurias intentaron en varias ocasiones, sin éxito, que se le otorgara dicho título a la basílica.
La basílica de Santa María, que constituye uno de los más bellos ejemplos de la arquitectura gótica de Cataluña, se erigió a partir del siglo XIII y su construcción continuó durante todo el siglo XVI, hasta los albores del siglo XV.
En su interior, descubra particularmente un muy bello retablo mayor de alabastro del siglo XV, dos sarcófagos condales, el retablo Dels Dolors del siglo XVIII, así como un órgano del siglo XIX.
Discoveries and creations.
A major autumn event, the Dance Festival, created by the city of Cannes, under the chairmanship of Rosella Hightower, has been one of the most important dance events in France for many years.
Every two years, a new artistic director is chosen. This person is given carte blanche to create an eclectic and contemporary programme.
In its programme the artistically adventurous festival brings together new talent, international companies, exciting discoveries, new works and bold new shows. Everything to do with dance is celebrated and Cannes demonstrates that it is not just about the film world!
Very critical Cannes…
The first fringe section of the Cannes Film Festival, the Semaine internationale de la critique is devoted to scouting out new talent.
Since its creation, it aims to honour the first and second works of film makers from all over the world.
The high school competition to choose a young film critic is also launched during the Semaine de la critique in Cannes.
Mimosa, source of light.
Dates to be confirmed.
Ever since 1931, Mandelieu has brightened up the winter with the yellow glow of mimosa blossoms. A festival queen will be elected for this year's festival. Evening parades feature floats decorated by local associations with a different theme every year, gliding past in clouds of mimosa petals to enthusiastic cheering from the crowds.
The essential film festival.
The Cannes Film Festival is one of the key annual events for the film industry, attended by prestigious directors and actors as well as up-and-coming film professionals who have yet to make their mark. One of the most famous festivals in the world, Cannes was first held after the Second World War, in 1946.
Memorable moments from the Festival in years gone by include Roberto Benigni's exuberant display of joy after winning the Palme d'Or for Life is Beautiful in 1998, the crazy presidency of Quentin Tarantino in 2004 or the presentation of best actor award to Jean Dujardin by President Robert De Niro in 2011.
Each year, the city of Cannes rolls out the red carpet to welcome the great and good to its film festival. Once again the festival will sweep us up in a wave of emotions thanks to the work of the year's most brilliant directors.
