The northern Mediterranean coastline of Spain is appealing for all kinds of vacations. The frivolity of the beach and the gravity of history are within the grasp of any traveler to Northern Spain, while the city of Barcelona is among the most exotic and alive places on the planet.
Catalunya on the east coast retains a ribbon of French influence throughout the culture due to its place on the border. Travelers to the Pyrenees enjoy skiing, hiking and other winter sports, while the coastal resort areas of Costa Brava and Costa Dorada offer sun and surf. The Mediterranean climate and beautiful scenery make Catalunya an international holiday destination.
Barcelona, the largest city in the region, is an extraordinary city with a vibrant nightlife as well as unforgettable fountains, monuments and architecture. There's a gothic quarter with buildings dating to the 15th century, while Las Ramblas is the central avenue of shopping and social activity. Discover an abundance of gleaming modern architecture in the Art Deco style in the Eixample, while natural scenery is on display for those who travel to the city's heights – by rail or cable car – at Montjuic and Tibidabo. Finally, enjoy access to museums of various styles saluting Picasso, Catalan culture and art, and other native passions, and the famed monastery of Montserrat shortly outside the city limits.
The spacious Spanish cottages, parks and lodges, campsites, and luxurious apartments await you when your energy levels are down and it's time to relax.
