In Photos of La Vanguardia Readers We can see how the north wind marks the sunrise at Alt Empordà, in L’Escala, where this cold and turbulent wind appears to be lifting the clouds.
tramontana (from Latin transmontanusmeaning “beyond the mountain”) is a northeast or northerly wind, which is very characteristic of this region of the Costa Brava.
It uses the north of the Pyrenees and the south-west of the Massif Central (France) as an acceleration zone to enter the Mediterranean Sea. It can last for several days with winds in excess of 200 km/h.
L’Escala is one of the most popular destinations on the Costa Brava in summer, as it has a large number of coves and beaches.
But, being able to walk along L’Escala’s promenade and take sunrise photos, as with this report, is a pleasure that can be enjoyed all year round, despite the north wind.
