As you can see from the included map, the autonomous community of Catalonia has four providences that are, Lleida, Girona, Barcelona, and Tarragona. As designated by the map, each one of theses providences has its own capital. In addition to these four capital cities that each providence has, like the 17 other autonomous communities, the entirety of the autonomous community of Catalonia also has a single capital. This single capital city is Barcelona.
Speaking of the capital city of Barcelona, in my introductory Spanish culture and civilization class, we learned that this city is the home of a breathtaking cathedral called La Sagrada Familia, or The Sacred Family in English. A modern creation from the mind of Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí, this cathedral is truly a spectacle! Take a look!
In addition to La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona is also home to another one of Gaudí's spectacular creations. This building called Casa Mila is a definite tourist attraction for anyone wanting to see something very modern and interesting! Take a look!
In addition to the fabulous architecture that Barcelona boasts, since it's located on the Mediterranean Sea's coast, it also has fabulous beaches! Take a look at this popular one!
In addition to Cataonia's beautiful beaches, as I have previously stated, Catalonia is an autonomous community that is also home to its own language. This unique language of Catalonia is called Catalán and is closely related to French.
Well I believe I have made it to the end of my Spanish cultural blog! I hope you have not only enjoyed just now learning a bit about the autonomous community of Catalonia but also about all of my experiences I had while on my study abroad journey! I hope one day you are given the opportunity to explore this beautiful country! ¡Viva España!
