A Spanish region, ubicated
in the Iberian peninsula and that belongs to the Hispanic
culture. Rich in its culture and variety thanks to the Spanish democracy, which promoted plans to revive the catalonian culture as it did with other
emblematic regions. Its historical capital
is Barcelona, famous for one of its football (soccer for americans) team.
Catalonia or Catalunya formed part of the Kingdom of Aragón, one of the two kingdoms that originated Spain in the XVth
Century. The other
is the Kingdom of Castille. Although different
united thanks to the fusion of their crowns, and gave the identity of the idea of modern spanish (different people
same roots and similar
ways of life who love the idea of a country that means all of it and represents all the hispanics culture).
There also exists
some Extremist Independent movements grounded in pseudo-theories who represent a small
minority, whose supporters are in most people with little
education. In any case the situation can't be compared to other
movements as the Scotish, Belgian or even Welsh.
Nowadays people critized all the money
spent in the revival of the catalonian
culture. But any real spanish
that considered as itself as one, know that it was a necesary spent to keep safe
Identity. A country proud of its origins.
