Girona dates back to Roman times

The autonomous community of Catalonia can be found to the north of Spain bordering the Pyrenees Mountains [url=]Cheap Jonathan Toews Jersey[/url] , and the Spanish provinces of Huesca, Teruel, Zaragoza and Valencia. During its history, Catalonia has gained and lost varying degrees of autonomy [url=]Cheap Duncan Keith Jersey[/url] , and none more so than during the Franco years (1939 - 1075) when its independence was squashed. After Franco's death, Catalonia regained its cultural independence and is now a dynamic and vibrant region with its capital city Barcelona second only to Madrid.

The Mediterranean coastline of Catalonia is known as the Costa Brava. There are plenty of wonderful beaches to be found the whole length of the Costa and with such a mild climate; Catalonia has been a favourite tourist destination for many years. The coastline is of great natural beauty being characterised by many small coves, bays and beaches. Inland, picturesque wooded cliffs; lush vegetation and varied wildlife make it ideal for both walkers and hikers alike.

Travelling around Catalonia should be fairly easy as the region has an excellent road network [url=]Patrick Kane Blackhawks Jersey[/url] , with the main coastal highway stretching from the Pyrenees Mountains, all the way down to Almeria. Main roads are good throughout the region and reach all of the main regional towns. Catalonia's main airport is found at Barcelona but charter flights can also be obtained to Girona and Reus.

Catalonia has a deep-rooted appreciation of culture, cuisine, sport and art. Even though the region is fiercely proud of its independence and history [url=]Corey Crawford Blackhawks Jersey[/url] , it is openhearted and open-minded to new ideas and people from the international world. Catalan cuisine is considered healthy and tasty similar to a Mediterranean diet, with beef and seafood forming the main part of many dishes. What with great olive oils and fine wines, Catalan cuisine is imaginative and creative.

Barcelona Holiday Attractions
