The Patriot of Catalunya

Former Catalonia Kingdom, Now Barcelona and it’s vicinity – has been on Catalan self-determination referendum campain to be an independent country apart from Spain for years.
Catalonia has a very unique, beautiful and strong culture.

 

The twins of Barcelona

Founded in 1401 when six small medieval hospitals merged with tunnels to transport patients underground – which is fascinating quality of medical care for that era and was used as hospital untill 2009. Now it’s a museum – very breathtaking one. I was there with no expectation but it turned out one of the most charming place in Barcelona.

 

The aloja of Montserrat

Mount Montserrat is famous for it’s Monastery on the mountain and the unique mountain shape.

Every country have a tale about young beautiful girl living in the woods. Spain is not an exception

 

 

 

The nymph of Pyrenees

After 3 days in Barcelona. We drove almost 400 km to the tiny country of Andorra. With only 60,000 population and landlocked between France and Spain. Situated in the middle of Pyrenees.

It used to belong to the Occitania – known for it’s Cathar religion that cherished peacefulness, meditation, non-self- absorption and vegan. Later Occitania was
massacred to extinction by the Christian

In the women’s hand is the Cathar Cross.

The Siren of Girona

We took the Pyrenees path on the way to France but drove back on the Mediterranean path. The coast we drove through was called ‘Costa Brava’ or ‘The Brave Cost’. Situated there is a city of Cadaques. The quited beach town with crystal clear blue water and vivid sky used to be home for Salvador Dali, the famous surrealist painter
