Catalonia offers a great scenic variety:
360 miles (580 km) of Mediterranean coastline cover Costa Brava, Costa Barcelona, Barcelona, Costa Daurada and Terres de l’Ebre.
The Catalan Pyrenees with their 1,864 mile-high peaks (3000 meters) dominate the northern area of the country. Specially interesting is Val d’Aran, a valley draining into the Atlantic Ocean that has preserved its own culture, language (Aranese) and government bodies.
Both the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona, and the three province seats, Girona,Tarragona and Lleida, feature a great variety of sights. In the rest of Catalonia, numerous towns with a distinct character boast some noteworthy heritage: handsome old quarters, buildings from Romanesque to Art Nouveau and a wide range of museums are worth a visit.
