Its historic wealth offers everywhere, towns with magnificent monuments and sites, that remind the numerous people and cultures that settled in the area, from the Greeks, the Romans, the Visigoths, the Arabs and the Christians.Well defined language and a cultural tradition inspire the personality of the region and its people. Catalonian culture presents universally recognised modern artists, such as Gaudi, Miró, Dalí, etc… influenced by the landscapes, the weather, the light… that will accompany us during the journey. As the perfect complement on this immersion on the heart of Catalonia, we recommend to spend a couple of days or more in Barcelona. It is a cosmopolitan capital that offers a very dynamic cultural and commercial lifestyle, as well as sportive activities. That’s why it is appreciated by tourists as one of the most attractive spots every year.
