Catalunya is an autonomous region of Spain that is home to its own unique culture and language. In fact, the Catalan people tend to be extremely proud of their heritage, and to this day there is a debate as to whether the region should constitute its own unique state. In fact, within Catalunya, it's possible to hear both Spanish and Catalan, a language unique to the region which is similar to Spanish, given that they both share Romantic roots. Its culture is also distinct, as it features, for example, unique dances like the sardana and exclusive musical styles like Catalan rock, as well as castells, which is the practice of assembling human towers that has been a part of the culture since the 18th century. The region is also home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like Gaudi's famous Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. In addition to this unique culture, a number of unique and beautiful Catalunya vacation rentals can also be rented in order to help you better appreciate this proud region of Spain.
Catalunya vacation rentals can be found all along the region, though most travelers automatically assume that most are simply Barcelona vacation rentals. Of course, while Barcelona is the region's capital and a must-see destination in its own right, rentals can also be found in the area around it. For example, Tossa de Mar, in the Costa Brava, is famous for its Tossa Beach, which is anchored by a medieval castle. Travelers can also venture further inland to municipalities like Viladrau, where prices are not only lower, but travelers are also afforded the opportunity to experience a more pure version of Catalan culture, as often only Catalan is spoken in these regions.
Catalunya is home to six airports, as well as two commercial ports and two publicly-owned railway services. Reaching Catalunya vacation rentals is therefore not necessarily difficult, although this depends in large part on where the rental is located. Obviously, a rental in Barcelona is going to be a lot easier to reach than a rental in Catalunya's more rural areas, with a car rental also being more beneficial if one is looking to stay in the countryside and tour its surroundings as well.
