The historic principality of Catalonia sits on the north east of the Iberian Peninsula, reaching over the Pyrenees and along the Mediterranean coast into the old county of Roussillon in France. With hills peppered with the ruins of Cathar castles, a rugged coastline and lush plains dotted with old towns, this beautiful region offers an air of the romantic. Today, the Catalan territories are still immensely proud of their heritage, its influence still palpable through landscape, culture, literature and art.
Highlights include ancient Girona, 'city of a thousand sieges', draped along the backbone of the mountains, and a visit to Figueres to the wonderful Teatre-Museu Dali.
