The autonomous community of Catalonia (in catalan: Catalunya), considered a historical nationality, it occupies the northeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula. It forms a triangle that limits to the north with France and Andorra, to the east with the Mediterranean Sea and to the west with Aragon and the Valencian Community.
Catalonia has established itself as one of the most prosperous and developed regions of Spain and Europe, being the industry, tourism and services the main economic sectors.
The relief is largely mountainous, with an average height of 700 m. We distinguish three general units: the Pyrenees and the Pre-Pyrenees in the north, the Catalan Pre-Coastal Mountain Range (Serralada Prelitoral) and the Catalan Coastal Range (Serralada Litoral), that form the Catalan Mediterranean System, and the Catalan Central Depression, a plain located in the center.
Catalonia enjoys a Mediterranean climate on the coast, tempered in winter and very hot in summer. In the interior, which has a continental Mediterranean climate, the winters are cold and the summers are very hot. In the Pyrenean areas, which have a high mountain climate, the winters are very cold, with snowfall, and the summers are less hot.
