Catalonia with Barcelona is Spain's number one region. In addition to crowded cities, there are quiet towns and villages here, and the golden sands of the Mediterranean Sea compete with the mountain landscapes of the Pyrenees. A trip to Catalonia is a dream come true for those who love relaxation by the sea and in the mountains, in beautiful scenery and with a large dose of sun.
The main tourist destinations of Catalonia are Barcelona, Costa Brava and Pyrenees – a campsite with a view of the mountains can be found in the vicinity of places such as Berga, Ribes de Freser or Sant Llorenç de la Muga. Another interesting form of exploring this region of Spain is culinary tourism. Catalonia is known, among other things, for its wine traditions – grapevines are grown in several different wine regions, and the most famous local type of wine is Cava del Panadés. Catalonia also offers a wide selection of restaurants with traditional Spanish, regional and international cuisine, including prestigious places awarded with Michelin stars.
A convenient place for camping in Catalonia is the Costa Brava coast with beautiful beaches and extensive tourist facilities, numerous attractions in the form of water parks, tropical gardens or excursion routes and the fabulous towns of Tossa de Mar, Peratallada, Girona or the native city of Salvador Dali – Figueres.
Barcelona is the largest city in Catalonia and enjoys unflagging popularity. Barcelona's attractions will satisfy everyone – both those focused on sightseeing and walking around the city, as well as seasoned connoisseurs of art and architecture, party-goers or families with children. One thing is for sure – Barcelona is the real pride of Catalonia.
