Tourism for all in the Iberian Peninsula
Tourist experiences. Barcelona is much more
Catalonia has a selection of destinations which offer a comprehensive range of adapted tourist amenities so that everyone has the chance to enjoy Catalonia’s extraordinary cultural heritage, its magnificent landscapes, its rich gastronomy, and even the broad spectrum of culture and sporting activities it has to offer.
Catalonia is privileged to have swelled the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites with architectural works by Antoni Gaudí and Domènech i Montaner, the archaeological site of Tarragona, Santa Maria de Poblet monastery and the Romanesque churches in Vall de Boí, among others.
Catalonia’s architectural heritage covers thousands of years of history. Its jewels include Iberian settlements, the remains of the first Greek city in the Iberian peninsula, the Roman legacy, Romanesque churches, Gothic cathedrals and Jewish quarters. With regard to artistic movements, Catalan modernism, which was at its height in the early 20th century with Gaudí as its greatest exponent, offers buildings that are unique in the world, such as La Pedrera, the Sagrada Familia and Güell Park.
Catalonia’s museums strive to live up to all this material, and the National Museum of Catalan Art (MNAC), as well as Gothic and Baroque art, exhibits the largest collection of Romanesque art in the world, a must for culture lovers.
The port of Barcelona receives more and more cruisers with passengers and in terms of gastronomy, Catalonia has the highest number of restaurants with prestigious Michelin stars, scattered all over the region, such as Celler de Can Roca in Girona and Sant Pau in Sant Pol de Mar.
City tourism. Wine tourism. Sun and beach tourism
Catalonia is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions in all of Spain. Between its coastal towns and historical cities, it’s easy to see why this area is one of the most popular destinations among travelers visiting Spain.
Also known as Catalunya, this autonomous community showcases the scenic Costa Brava as well as part of the Pyrenees.
Catalonia is a Mediterranean destination with an age-old history, a deep-rooted linguistic heritage and a great cultural and natural heritage.
In its four regional capitals – Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona – you will find a combination of historic areas, medieval buildings, modernist architecture and a great variety of museums.
Inland cities, such as Tortosa, Vic or Vilafranca del Penedès, have succeeded in preserving the heritage of their monuments extremely well. With its 580 kms of coastline, the Catalan Pyrenees, many natural parks and protected areas, Catalonia offers a touristic destination full of variety, for all tastes and ages, all year round: family tourism, culture, adventure, nature, business trips, and over 300 wineries open to visitors to delight in the pleasures of wine tourism.
In the Iberian Peninsula, Wine tours in La Rioja and Rioja Alavesa stand out as other important points of Enotourism

Spain is spoiled for having some of the best Beaches in Europe
Spain has more than 5,000 miles of beautiful coastline; most of this is adorned by equally beautiful beaches. Some of these rank among the greatest in the world.
By definition, a great beach is one that gets you hooked and makes you hate the idea of leaving when your holiday is over, the kind of beach that elicits constant dreams and makes you plan to revisit even before the holiday tan is gone.
Family beach holidays are where some of the best moments and memories are made of and should be enjoyed to the max when holidaying with your family.
