Catalonia Travel Guide

Catalan food, Catalan language and some distinct features of Catalonia is strewn across different parts of Spain. Catalan towns and villages are extremely prosperous, and this prosperity and confidence date back to the fourteenth-century Golden Age. However, today Catalonia is a semi-autonomous community, rich in natural splendours and luxuries of life. Its landscape is varied; from towering peaks of the Pyrenees to the glittering blue waters of the Mediterranean, it encompasses all. The flashy luxurious resorts of Costa Brava get alluringly mingled with the quaint parish churches, situated in the small hamlets interiors! Besides its diversity and uniqueness, this part of Spain is comparatively intact and close to its roots.
