Catalonia: a blank page

Book



We are giving you a challenge: let your imagination soar and pretend to be a travel writer. You could choose to be Ulysses, Jules Verne or Stevenson. With a notepad under your arm, your destination will be Catalonia. Shall we begin?




What landscapes do you want to explore?
When you arrive, the first thing you'll notice is the diverse landscape. The Mediterranean shows up in the story. This sea bathes the entire coast, which affects the character of the people here. It has been an entry point for many civilisations and cultures who have together woven the history of Catalonia and formed the Catalan culture: with its own language, Catalan, and multiple expressions.
But the sea is not all. To the north, the Catalan  Pyrenees  rise imposingly as the second natural border, where the rural world coexists with the new visitors, and also the  18 Natural Parks  around the country.



Barcelona's magnetism
As well as the natural surroundings, we must not forget the urban, and in this category  Barcelona is the star. The Catalan capital is modern and cosmopolitan, a vibrant city that begs to be explored on foot to discover its daily nature, its   modernist architecture, the culture and the gastronomy. In Barcelona you want to be in the street because the sun shines most of the year  and the temperatures are mild. Look, now your notebook is almost full and your journey has just begun. 




The ages of culture
Culture will fill a few more pages of your travel book. Did you know that in the  Vall de Boí there is the largest set of Romanesque churches in Europe, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site? In Tarragona the cultural legacy goes even further back in time to the splendour of the Roman Empire. A stroll around the ancient walls or the amphitheatre will be very inspiring for you. Are you sure about the historical references of your story? The modernists can give you the omnipresent figure of the genius  Salvador Dalí on the Costa Brava or the architectural hallmark of   Gaudí in Barcelona with its modernist buildings.




Gastronomic passion
Any worthy travel book must include a few touches of gastronomy, don't you think?  The  Catalan cuisine is one of the most prestigious in the world. Internationally famous chefs such as Ferran Adrià,  Carme Ruscalleda and the  Roca brothers come from here. All have been fundamentally influenced by the country's traditional gastronomy based on fresh and local products. Seeing this gastronomic intensity, maybe it would be best to devote a whole chapter of your book to it, rather than a few mentions, don't you think? The choice is in your hands.




Land easy to explore
A trip around Catalonia is full of surprises. Although it is almost impossible to discover them all, you can have many. How? The explanation is simple. This is a small region that you can travel easily. By car, you can travel from north to south in three hours, combining   the beach  and mountains, city and  countryside, two cities, the combinations are infinite and will give the story colour.




At this time, your imagination  has already soared to Catalonia. When will you go?

Casa Milà. La Pedrera
Casa Milà is a modernist building by Antoni Gaudí dating from 1905-1911, which totally broke the mould. Next to the stone structure, we can highlight the wrought iron balconies. The building is the perfect example of curved lines in Gaudí’s work.

Monumental ensemble of La Seu Vella
This monumental ensemble is formed by the Seu Vella (old cathedral) and La Suda castle, which offer the best panoramic views of the capital of Lleida. The Seu Vella has a basilican layout and was built in the 13th century on the site of a mosque.

Art for dinner. The flavours that inspired Dalí
Dalí used to say that cooking and painting were closely related art forms, as with both you must continue to add ingredients in order to achieve the desired result. L'Empordà's cuisine reflects the magnanimity of a land bathed in sea and sheltered by mountains.

Cadaqués
Limited in the north by the cape of Creus and the cape of Norfeu in the south, Cadaqués is one of the most emblematic locations of the landscape and of the fishing tradition of the Costa Brava. The town, white and plain, is located in the middle of the bay of the same name.

Close to prominent spaces such as Portlligat or the monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, its profile is dotted with many coves where you can enjoy the unbeatable quality of the waters of the Costa Brava.

In turn, the inside boasts fascinating architecture, combining medieval remains of the old town with moving modernist features such as la Casa Serinyana.

During the second half of the 20t century, Cadaqués filled with artists and bohemians. The most well-known were the couple formed by the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí and his wife, Gala. But what can more clearly bring us closer to the spirit of Cadaqués is the pen of the great writer from Empordá, Josep Pla.

The municipality of Begur is located at 200 metres above sea level, on the massif of the same name, located between Gavarres and the coast. Here, on the coast, are some of the most admired coves and beaches of the Costa Brava.

The town extends around the impressive Medieval castle, dating back to the 11th century, surrounded by narrow, winding streets that lead up to the fortresses ruins, through a rough and capricious orography. The town's defence towers are its referential historic elements.

Bisbal d'Empordà, la / Costa Brava
   

La Bisbal d’Empordà, capital of Baix Empordà, is a town known in particular because of its excellent popular and decorative ceramics, an activity that is clearly evident in the municipality due to the industrial chimney stacks and the many specialised shops.

It is located on the plain of Empordá, at the last northern buttresses of Gavarres, and the Daró river runs through it. The castle-palace of la Bisbal and the Terracotta Museum are the municipality's main attractions, without forgetting the ceramicists' workshops and shops.

Blanes is currently one of the main tourist destinations of the Costa Brava, though for years it was a small and calm fishing village.

Its four kilometres of beaches, strong business activity and wide-ranging accommodation and restaurants make it one of the most important towns in the district.

This town has been awarded the certificate of Destino de Turismo Familiar/Family Tourism Destination, given by the Catalan Tourism Board. During the holidays, family-friendly accommodation and hospitality is available alongside appropriate entertainment and leisure.

Calafell stands out thanks to its beaches, typical of the Costa Daurada. In addition to the main urban centre, which is not at the seafront, the municipality has grown significantly in recent decades in the coastal districts of Platja de Calafell and Segur de Calafell, thanks to increased tourisd second residencies.

However, apart from the tourist attraction of its beaches, Calafell offers other places of interest related to different stages in its history, such as the Iberian citadel or Santa Creu castle.

This municipality has been awarded the specialised DTF (Destino de Turismo Familiar/Family Tourism Destination) seal, given by the Catalan Tourist Board. During the holidays, family-friendly accommodation and hospitality is available alongside appropriate entertainment and leisure.
