The Catalonia area of Spain can be one of the most exciting and architecturally pleasing locations to visit in Spain. Here is a list of five things to see and do in the region.

 

Barcelona has some of the most stunning architecture from prominent architects, like the well-known Antoni Gaudi, and it elevates the appeal of the city. The buildings are colorful with mosaic designs. The city’s octagonal-shaped blocks are specific to Barcelona.

 

Running of the Bulls in Pamplona is an event that requires event-goers to run in front of a small herd of cattle let loose in a section of the town. It is a major tourism event and can be dangerous. Even though there is no official dress code, people usually dress in white with a red handkerchief around their neck or waist.

 

Tarragona will take you on a trip to the past of the gladiators and emperors. There is an amphitheater next to the sea that hosted gladiator fights in the past. There is an archaeological museum for more history, and the city center has places for people to shop and eat as they please.

 

Try to visit a few restaurants where you can enjoy Catalan cuisine and a flamenco show. The area makes great tapas and sangrias, and the Spanish are well-known for paellas. If you can get a package that comes with a flamenco show, it will make the experience much better.

 

Festivals are a prominent structure in the Catalan way of life. Music lovers will enjoy the Barcelona Beach Festival, and the Sonar Festival. Sant Joan is the Catalan Festival of Fire on the 23rd of June, which is around the longest day of the year and official mark of summer.
