Cheap flights to Catalonia

Catalonia is an autonomous community of Spain comprised of four provinces, namely Barcelona, Girona, Lleida, and Tarragona, in northeast Spain. Catalonia is also designated a "nationality" by its Statute of Autonomy. It is bordered by France and Andorra to the north, the Mediterranean Sea to the east, and the Spanish regions of Aragon and the Valencian Community to the west and south. The capital and largest city in the region is the city of Barcelona, located in the province of the same name. Catalonia has a lot to offer tourists, with stunning cove beaches, hilltop villages, medieval monasteries, Roman and Greek ruins of Tarragona and Empuriés, and more. The region is, in many ways, different from the rest of Spain, considered to be one of the most independent-minded regions in the country.
