A prosperous and fiercely proud region, Catalonia’s distinct history, language and cuisine have led to a strong individual identity and a belief in its rightful place as an independent nation. Barcelona is the heart of the region, a city of medieval lanes and Antoni Gaudí’s own brand of Art Nouveau architecture. It gives way to the wild scenery of the Costa Brava, the peaks of the Pyrenees, and the fields and medieval villages of the interior. There’s an array of attractions, from the mountaintop monastery of Montserrat to the Penedès wine region responsible for Spain’s sparkling cava wine, and our specialists can help you plan your trip. They’ll use their first-hand knowledge of Catalonia to guide you on where to visit and what to do.
Whether you want to discover the creative works of Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona, explore Romanesque churches and Gothic cathedrals, trace Salvador Dalí’s footsteps in Figueres, relax on the beach or hike through the mountains, our experts can guide you along the way. Our specialists have explored the main sights and the lesser-known ones, and they’ll carefully plan your holiday to Catalonia as an individual tailor-made trip to match your preferences.
