Key Facts, International Travel, and Things to Do

    Background

    Catalunya is a autonomous community of Spain, situated in the north-east of the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Andorra and France. The stunning Costa Brava runs down one side of Catalunya, culminating at the regional capital of Barcelona. To the north of the region, you can find the beautiful Pyrenean mountain range.

    Barcelona is the capital city of Catalunya, and the nearest city to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. With a population of 1.6 million inhabitants, it is also the second most populated city in Spain (after Madrid). The city spreads from the coast out to the surrounding hills, and boasts stunning architecture, great weather and beautiful parks. We would recommend you to take the time to visit two of the most beautiful icons of the city that are the work of the Modernist architect Antoni Gaudí: Sagrada Familia and Park Güell. It is also worth having a walk through Las Ramblas boulevard, where you will find the famous La Boqueria food market, as well as making your way up to Montjuic to enjoy awe-inspiring views over Barcelona this hill offers.
