Catalonian Cultural Tourism

Catalonian Cultural Tourism | Geography Education | Scoop.it

I introduce this topic when teaching about Europe (regionally) or devolution (thematically).  The tourism board bills them as "a European Mediterranean country," distinctly separate from Spanish cultural identity.  Implied also is a political distinction as well with their NATIONAL history museum (select language to view in English).  A google image search for "Catalonia is not Spain" will yield excellent visual materials to support the political will for greater autonomy.

Catalonia is not Spain. A region that can draw tourism on its own merits that is distinctly Catalonian and not Spanish. These people have strong cultural ties to Catalonia that makes it distinguishable from Spain.
