tumblr_nbr24w0bXG1t9xzcpo6_1280The rivalry between Madrid and Barcelona is famous in Spain, but it goes much further than modern day football. Oh yes, Catalan pride is a powerful force that has shaped Spain into the country it is today. The region of Catalunya is located in the north eastern coast of Spain and is made of 4 provinces – Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona.

Catalonia and its proud people often consider themselves as a separate nation from the rest of the country. Since the fall of the Roman Empire, the people of Catalonia have been fighting to become an independent region of Spain – which was granted in part, in the late 19th century. It is now self-governed and raises it’s own provincial flag, rather than that of Spain. The region even has it’s own language – a unique combination of Spanish and the french language that was left behind and recently attempted to gain full Catalan independence.

vineyardsCatalunya is one of the most populated regions of the country, both by Spaniards and by tourists. With people flocking from all over the world to visit the beautiful coastline and the famous city of Barcelona. Barcelona is one of the largest cities in Spain and is flourshing with culture, art and an amazing nightlife scene. The region also offers amazing landscapes, as its nothern border is lined with the gorgeous french Pyrenees mountains and the Mediterranean coast to the east. Due to the salty ocean air and the fresh wind from the mountains, Catalonia produces some of the finest crops in the county. The countryside is covered in rolling hills with endless olive groves, vineyards and farms

Can I simply just say what a relief to discover a person that truly knows what they are discussing online.
You actually realize how to bring an issue to light and make it
important. A lot more people must look at this and understand this side of the story.

It’s surprising you’re not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
