Catalunya or Catalonia as it's known in English, is a place of contrasts. From the sprawling metropolis of Barcelona to the mountainous Pyrenees and the calm water of the Mediterranean.

To be Catalan is to be fiercely proud of your culture and identity. This area of Spain has its own dialect, which you'll see taking precedence over Castillian on signage throughout the region and the sense of history here is something completely different to what you might experience anywhere else in Spain.

Enjoy the hustle and bustle of Barcelona, the medieval city of Girona, ski in the Catalan Pyrenees or sunbathe on the beaches of the Costa Brava and the Costa Dorada. Explore ancient inland villages, lush countryside, take a vineyard tour and enjoy delicious Catalan tapas. Whatever you could possibly want from your holiday, you'll find it in Catalonia.
