Catalunya launches the Grand Tour of Catalonia

New self-drive adventure encourages discovery of Northeastern Spain

Spanish tourism bureau Catalan Tourist Board (Catalunya) has developed a new self-drive route designed to entice visitors to “know, discover, live, taste and enjoy” the Northeastern part of Spain.

Dubbed the ‘Grand Tour of Catalonia’, the circular route traverses more than 2,000kms of roadway setting out from Barcelona, to Tarragona, Lleida, La Seu and Figueres. The course is ideally covered as either a 13-day adventure or in five sections of either 5 or 7 stages.

Developed in collaboration with the tourism boards of the different councils in Catalonia, and with the backing of the private sector, the Grand Tour of Catalonia climbs from the sea to the mountains, through cities to small towns, highlighting the region’s 60+ Michelin-starred to home-cooked delicacies, and everything in between.
