Spain and Catalonia are rich in breath-taking architecture, deep ancient history and diverse culture. Spain is the third largest country in Europe by area with a population of 47.77 million (2014). Each region of Spain provides you with a different feel and ambience, especially Catalonia.

The government system is a parliamentary monarchy which enables Spain to have an elected government body. Yet, each of the nineteen autonomous regions have their own private administrative sectors.

As a tourist destination, Spain is currently the third most popular destination in the world with 60,5 million tourist arriving in 2013. The popularoty comes from the wide variety of gastronomy, fresh climate, and rich culture just to name a few. The most popular and developed tourist regions include Catalonia, Andalucia and Valencia.



Catalonia has a very marked culture of its own, most evidently of Mediterranean tradition, and the region is different from most other Spanish regions in several aspects – especially in terms of its language, Catalonian (although everybody speaks and understands Castilian Spanish perfectly). The region is certainly one of the most cosmopolitan places in Spain, thanks to its long tradition of international commerce.

The coast offers ideal facilities for all sorts of water sports, but everywhere you will realize about that special talent to combine the beauty of nature or monuments with modern attractions, a main reason why Catalonia is one of the preferred tourist destinations.

Its excellent gastronomy is known for seafood, rice dishes, wines of great international reputation and traditional desserts like the famous “Catalonian Cream”. The capital Barcelona, which is located at the Mediterranean Sea, offers the structures of a true metropolis.
