Catalonia is an autonomous community of Spain comprising of 4 counties: Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona.  The capital, and largest, city is Barcelona, 2nd largest city in Spain behind Madrid.  Catalonia is a complete destination with sea and mountains so, whether you fancy a lounge on the beach or a ski down the slopes, city visits or country strolls, fine Michelin star dining or a picnic in the vineyards, this land has it all.

What is the secret ingredient? A little bit of everything! History, culture, patrimonial richness, a unique gastronomy, an enviable environment with long coast paths, rolling hills, outdoor activities, countless medieval villages, Mediterranean nature, majestic cities and friendly inviting natives.
