Salvador Dalí’s brushes put color to the world of dreams, Pau Casals stood out for his musical compositions, some of them as a symbol of peace. Pablo Picasso had his role especially remarkable in his cubist era. Joan Miró integrated part of his work in the landscape and Antoni Gaudí stood out for his architecture faithfully reflected in the Gaudí Experience tourism program

In the Catalan cultural universe, museums, galleries, literature, architecture orbit around the universal geniuses. They were sublime in different disciplines and shared the fact of having been born or lived in Catalonia, and above all of having left the footprint of their creation forever.

Salvador Dalí’s brushstrokes, the musical compositions of Pau Casals, some turned into references of peace. Picasso stands out for his a Cubist cry. Joan Miró combines his work with daily objects. He developed a plastic expression not ascribed to any particular movement. Josep Pla, on the other hand, explored the limits of adjectives. In a very different field, though guided by the same concerns of discovery, Antoni Gaudí stood out with his organic architecture.

The different territories that have a historical heritage become a differential element that allows greater tourist attraction. Heritage and cultural wealth are essential for the differentiation of these tourist destinations that are endowed with added value.

In the Barcelona of the late nineteenth century, the architecture lived a remarkable moment and became a sign of social status of the prosperous bourgeoisie of the time. One of the places where the urban landscape is most exceptional is the Eixample area, where the modernist phenomenon has its highest expression.

The Route of Modernism is especially attractive, highlighting from the ARC DE TRIOMF, on the Paseo de Lluís Companys, built according to the design of Josep Vilaseca and presiding over the entrance of the 1888 Universal Exhibition site.
Also noteworthy is the PARC DE LA CIUTADELLA. Before becoming a park, however, the grounds were the seat of the Universal Exhibition of 1888. The Exhibition, although certainly less important than other similar exhibitions, such as Paris or London, also intended to make known the wonders of the new technologies of the incipient capitalist industry and to make Barcelona known worldwide.

To all the cultural offer, you can add unique traditions such as “els castellers”, some human towers that appear in the Unesco Decalogue as Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Film festivals such as Girona, the Fantastic Sitges or unique events such as the Montsec Astronomy Festival and the International Movement Festival in Reus complement a differentiated cultural offer as a tourist destination that promotes cultural diversity and highlights the economic contribution of your heritage.
