Catalonia holidays come complete with the Costa Brava’s golden beaches, the high-rising peaks of the Pyrenees, and Barcelona’s Gaudi architecture.
Natural beauty in the north
You’ll find Catalonia in a north-eastern pocket of Spain. It’s got quite a distinct feel compared to the rest of the country. The region’s got its own language, plus eye-widening landscapes of vineyards, peaks and coves. The beaches are famous, too, especially the sandy sweeps along the family-friendly stretch of the Costa Brava.
The Sagrada Familia in Barcelona
One of the mains draws of Catalonia is Barcelona, the region’s capital. It’s one of the Mediterranean’s most famous cities, and lays claim to architectural wonders like Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia. This largely unfinished Medieval cathedral is the most visited landmark in Spain, and its Gothic turrets are guaranteed to have your jaw on the floor.
Holidays in Catalonia wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the Pyrenees mountain range, especially if you’re a fan of hiking. This chain of snow-dusted peaks between France and Spain is littered with national parks, and walking trails of all lengths. There are also quaint alpine villages and hilltop castles waiting to be explored.
