Catalonia

Catalonia

Catalonia is a Spanish autonomous community. Its strategic location has made for a very intense relationship with the Mediterranean and with continental Europe. Catalonia is formed by the provinces of Barcelona, Gerona, Lleida, and Tarragona, of which only three are by the sea (Barcelona, Gerona, y Tarragona) and these provinces are where you’ll find the beaches described on this site. Catalonia’s capital is the city of Barcelona.

The official languages of Catalonia are Spanish and Catalan.

Catalan sportsmen such as Marc Marquez, Dani Pedrosa, and Xavi Hernández are known worldwide.

In Catalonia, the Mediterranean climate predominates, and although there are large variations in temperature along the coastline, it’s generally mild. The weather is warm in winter and very hot in summer, while the interior has a continental climate with cold winters and hot summers. In areas close to the Pyrenees, there’s a high mountain climate with a minimum that’s below zero, and heavy snow in winter.

The Catalan restaurant El Bulli is known worldwide for being named the best restaurant in the world for several years.
