Catalonia is an autonomous region of north-east Spain. It borders France and Andorra along the Pyrenees to the north, the Costa Brava and Costa Durada along the Mediterranean Sea to the east. To the south is Valencia and to the west Aragon. The capital of the Catalonia region is the famous city of Barcelona.
Being autonomous to Spain many Catalan's are divided between those who support independence and those who support union with Spain, this is most noticeable when talking to the local people, many will refuse to speak Spanish and will choose not to understand, others will answer in Spanish when spoken to in Catalan. Apart from along the coastal area or large hotels and Airports, English may not be understood, or spoken.
With the exception of the capital, Barcelona, it is the Mediterranean coastal areas of the Costa Brava and Costa Dorada, that draw the attention of most visitors to this part of Spain, well known for it's sandy beaches and mild climate.
Most major coastal resort areas provide first rate tourist facilities, with good quality tourist information services, a large number of reasonably priced hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs.
