Catalunya

Catalunya is an autonomous region in eastern Spain. Its capital is Barcelona, one of the largest cities of the country. The entire region has 7.5 million inhabitants. Catalunya has a coastline of 580 kilometers which consists of the Costa Brava, Costa del Maresme, Costa del Garraf and Costa Dorada. The region has three official languages: Catalan, Spanish and Aranese. The region has highly developed its own identity and the use of the Catalan language is strongly promoted by the state government.

Barcelona has a lively atmosphere. At the Rambla, the boulevard that runs from the harbor to the Plaza Catalunya, you will find terraces, flower stalls, kiosks, street artists, museums and theaters. Furthermore, the city is influenced by Gaudi. You can visit the Park Guëll, a municipal park in the Gràcia district with woodland and avenues of palms. In the park you will find the Casa Museu Gaudi. The famous Sagrada Familia is designed by Gaudi. The construction of the church began in 1882 and is still continuing. The Museu Picasso is one of the most visited attractions of the city. The museum has three floors and there are thirty-five rooms with works of Picasso from the period 1890-1957. The museum also hosts temporary exhibitions with varying themes about the life and work of Picasso.

Girona has many historic houses and churches that are located on the steep hill Caputxins. There are still some remains of the ancient walls that once protected the city. A characteristic image of Girona is the "hanging" buildings on the river Onyar and the bridges that cross this river. Another highlight of Girona is the original Arab baths, which were built in the year 1194.

Tarragona has its Roman walls, dating from the 2nd century, the amphitheater, the arches of the Roman aqueduct and the remains of the forum. The cathedral Santa Maria from the 12th century is one of the most important monuments in the Gothic Quarter.

At the coast are the famous beaches that attract many tourists. Especially Salou and Lloret de Mar are popular with their miles of beaches, water sports and an entertaining nightlife. The Catalan Pyrenees are the perfect place for winter sports and the national parks of Aigüestortes en Estany de Sant Maurici are the exact sports for hiking.
