Tales of Catalonia and Spain - TARRAGONA, VALENCIA and BARCELONA

A trip to the east coast of Spain along with three stations in Barcelona, Tarragona (both in Catalonia) and Valencia.

We begin our gallery in the Catalan province city of Tarragona. The city has existed since ancient times; the Romans conquered Tarraco in 218 BC and fortified the walls. Today, the city has about 130.00 inhabitants and a small university called Rovira i Virgili. Catalan seems to be the main language, which is a little closer to French in my opinion. Culturally, people like to be a little bit more independent from the rest of Spain.







Brevity is the soul of wit, hence no more than ca. 20 images per city.
