THE SPIRIT OF THE COSTA BRAVA

  • GASTRONOMY

Our gastronomy is undoubtedly one of the most important ingredients to highlight, due to its quality, tradition and worldwide recognition. Culture and gastronomy go hand in hand and you will be able to enjoy these as you have never done before. In the Costa Brava you will delight in tasting unique and regional products. You will also experience exquisite tasting menus prepared by the most prestigious Michelin-starred chefs of the area. Not forgetting the tasting of local wines, with visits to vineyards and wineries or local product workshops.

  • ACCOMODATION

The accommodations we offer are all high-quality hotels renowned for their comfort and service, without forgetting their excellent location and surroundings. In charming medieval villages or on the seafront, most of the hotels have a long family tradition or located in rural farmhouses with an epic history in every single stone of their walls. All hotels are acclaimed on the Costa Brava for receiving the best reviews.

  • CULTURE

The rich, local culture is another ingredient to highlight. All our tours include guided visits to internationally renowned museums, historical castles, ancient Roman ruins and medieval villages. Apart from that, we will discover vineyards and wineries famous both for their elaborate wine collections and for their facilities, some of which have been awarded the European Union’s Contemporary Architecture prize.

  • LANDSCAPE AND ENVIRONMENT

Our landscape and surroundings make us feel as if we live in paradise. Those of us who live on the Costa Brava recognise that we are very fortunate, as we have the Mediterranean sea, the mountains of the Pyrenees, forests and meandering rivers, right on our doorstep. At OCB we want to share these special places with you, that’s why our tours run along very safe routes. We ride on quiet back roads as well as country roads.

Thanks to our mountain bikes, we can access places where the asphalt does not reach and discover the most breath-taking corners of the Costa Brava.

During these years of uninterrupted operation, more than 900 patients were treated and more than 7,000 treatment and staff training sessions were carried out.

The current chamber was built in Germany by the company Haux-LIFE-SUPPORT and has two compartments, a diameter of 2.5 metres and a total length of 5.8 metres. This allows a maximum treatment capacity of 8 seated persons. However, it can be configured in various ways: 2 patients can be treated on a stretcher, 1 patient on a stretcher and 4 seated or 8 seated. It also has an innovative air supply system and is equipped with the most modern safety mechanisms available. The maximum working pressure is 5 bar.

The Hyperbaric Medicine Unit at Palamós Hospital currently has 6 medical professionals, 21 nursing professionals and 4 chamber operators. There is a permanent on-call team of 3 people (a doctor, nurse and chamber operator) that are able to respond immediately to any emergency 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

This unit also carries out the medical examinations required for sport and professional scuba diving, as well as various teaching activities.
