The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
In the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, on the Mediterranean side, and occupying a relatively small area of 32,000 square kilometres, lies Catalonia, one of Spain's most fascinating and diverse regions.
Geographically and culturally, the splendour of Catalonia is so unique. It has a vast diversity of landscapes ranging from rocky coastlines to long flat beaches, from mountains to plains, and from marshlands to forest. It has great cosmopolitan cities such as the amazing Barcelona with its fantastic art nouveau buildings, or the historical Girona and its great old Jewish quarter. It has small medieval mountain villages sitting at the foot of the Pyrenees and elegant coastal resorts in the sandy shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Catalonia has a distinct regional identity that borrows little form the rest of Spain. Catalans have their own language, and are intensely proud of their unique art, cuisine, folklore and long history. Ask the Catalans themselves and many will tell you that Catalonia is not a region but a nation. Not surprisingly, rivalry between the Catalans and the rest of Spain is an ongoing part of this country's history.
Catalonia is home of great artistic achievements, ranging from grand Greek and Roman monuments, or exquisitely simple Romanesque works, to some of the most exciting art of the twentieth century such as the great Gaudí's avant garde buildings, the surrealism of the painters Salvador Dalí or Miró, or the cubism of Picasso, all of whom spent their formative years in Catalonia.
Catalans pride themselves on good eating too, and you will find some of Spain's finest restaurants here. Catalan food is typically Mediterranean, featuring olive oil as its staple component. As the region is so geographically diverse, it provides a variety of fresh high quality meat, poultry, game, seafood, fruit and vegetables and a great variety of wild mushrooms.
Fine red and white wines are produced here, and Catalan sparkling wines (cavas) are favourite celebratory wines around the world.
Finally Catalonia offers a wide range of activities to suit all ages and levels of fitness: Skiing (in winter), swimming, horse back riding, cycling, hiking, golfing, ... there are endless possibilities.
All in all Catalonia offers no end of opportunities for day trips and adventures, that together with its excellent communications, makes of Catalonia a top-class tourist destination in Europe.
Catalonia, Spain is a region rich with world-class architectural achievements and experiences left behind by geniuses like Gaudi and Jujol. There is the spectacular and unfinished Cathedral, La Sagrada Familia ,and the marvellous architectural parks where architecture and nature intertwines. The extraordinary resident buildings like la casa Batlló, where the intense mosaics and rather strange lines invoke pictures of skeletons, dinosaurs and dragons in our minds. Among these architectural masterpieces in the city of Barcelona there is a modern shopping environment, where you will find the latest trends in fashion and design. All the major cities in Catalonia are lively and stylish cities. Come check it out...

With more than 300 sunny days, Catalonia has deserved its surname "the sunny side of the Pyrenees". The climate, however, varies depending on which part of the region you visit.
By the coast there is Mediterranean climate with mild winthers and hot summers with temperatures 30-35 degrees. Due to the closeness to the sea, the heath is more humid than centrally in Catalonia. Barcelona has its own climate. The city is surrounded by mountains on three sides, and on the fourth side the sea and therefore it has a high humidity in July and August. In these months, a ride in the airconditioned metro and buses can be a relief. The best months to visit Barcelona is September-November and March-May, but Barcelona can easily be visited all year around, as the sun almost always shines. Even in December and January it is possible to find a sunny spot with a nice temperature.
Inland there is continental climate which means that there is generally a big flucturation in the temperatures and that it is colder in the winther-time, not at least in the mountains. In the Pyrenees, there are several skisport resorts.
In the summer, the heath is dry and therefore pleasant even on very hot days, if you stay in the shadow in the mid-day sun. There is usually beautiful weather from Marc to October. The Catalans would never enter the swimming pool before in the middle of June, but our guests from more northern countries have jumped in April as well as September.
