It is a land rich in wines and fresh products from the sea, market garden and mountains. Thanks to this and to a culinary tradition going back a long way, Catalan food is now among the most highly rated in the world.

It is truly amazing how a small territory like Catalonia can contain so many contrasts. From the snow-capped peaks of the Pyrenees to the crystal-clear beaches of the Costa Brava, stone cliffs or the architecture of a unique city like Barcelona. Catalonia is inspiration, emotion and feeling in each and every one of the possibilities in its territory.
That Catalonia is good enough to eat is not just a catchphrase from some glossy catalogue. New and old flavours created by the most prestigious chefs have their origins in this region. Local producers and grandma’s recipes, the gastronomic DNA of Catalonia is innovative and cutting edge, an ode to the amazing Mediterranean diet, declared an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.
Colour, aroma, flavour and even texture. Wine is emotion. Feel an explosion of nuances on your palate after visiting vineyards and discovering first-hand the grape varieties with which some of the best wines in Europe are made.
It was during the late 19th century that Catalan architecture became a symbol of power and social status. Today, more than a matter of economics, Catalan Art Nouveau, or Modernisme, is a question of emotion.
ART & HISTORY
There are more than enough reasons to claim that art, in particular, and the desire to take on the world, in general, of the Catalan capital experienced a remarkable period in the late 19th century, and there are many examples that prove it. During those years, architecture became a sign of social status of the flourishing bourgeoisie at the time.
Barcelona at its most fashionable can be found in streets such as Passeig de Gràcia, filled as it is with trends, major brands, a host of dining options and a great deal of beauty indeed.
Showrooms, fashion events… Barcelona and fashion have never formed a better tandem, and thanks to this, you can buy the latest fashion before anyone else or take a front row seat at the best celebrations.
Few experiences are more luxurious than feeling the sea breeze while sailing around the Mediterranean discovering unexplored nooks and crannies accompanied by the gentle swaying of the waves.
FC BARCELONA, LEISURE & GOLF
Passion, devotion, tradition and, of course, fun. The world’s best football team is about to make a magical pass. Applause. Exciting attractions at one of the most exciting theme parks. Is there even more? Of course there is. Improve your handicap on any of Catalonia’s golf courses, some with stunning views of the sea or endless vineyards.
