Nature and landscapes :
Northwestern Spain has countless natural attractions: a steep coastline and rocky beaches, secluded coves and steep cliffs; rugged terrain with high peaks of over 2,500 m and charming valleys. Subject to different climatic influences, this mountainous country, where the sea is never far away, has also been occupied by man for thousands of years. Over time, man has shaped this space into a fantastic mosaic of different environments and ecosystems.

History :
The history of Spain offers a succession of moments of glory interspersed with dark periods: a brilliant culture in the Paleolithic; a mythical kingdom assimilated to Atlantis; a series of invasions : Carthaginian, Roman, Visigothic, Arab; a Muslim golden age, nibbled away slowly by the Reconquest; the Inquisition and religious persecutions; the conquest of the New World and the colonial apogee; social decline and unrest; the Popular Front and Francoism; the advent of democracy and the modernization of the country...
Over time, the North has developed a complex national identity, long marked by territorial and religious conflicts.

Art and Architecture :
Northern Spain has been enriched throughout the centuries by a heritage of splendid works of art: beautiful Romanesque churches, impressive Gothic cathedrals, exuberant Baroque sanctuaries, magnificent manor houses, sumptuous paintings and sculptures... In the 20th century, its provinces will, like Catalonia, play an essential role in the modernization of Spanish art.

Culture :
Wandering knights, rascals, mystics, Don Juans and bandits of the great roads ride proudly through Spanish letters. The literature of the north of the country, however, has a strong singularity compared to Castilian letters. The history of this region, fiercely attached to its independence and which has three languages in addition to the official Castilian, has forged original works.

Arts and popular traditions :
Spain is a country where traditions are still alive and where people participate intensely in the festivals, often highly theatrical, celebrated throughout the year.
These celebrations, different and varied according to the region, are a testimony to the richness and diversity of the country.
