What awaits travelers in Catalonia – another journey

There are places that everyone knows, even if they have never set foot in them. Barcelona is such a place, if only thanks to its football team, which has so many Israeli fans that it sometimes seems like a local team. But Barcelona is much more than exciting football, and beyond the exciting sites in the city itself, the whole of Catalonia, of which Barcelona is the capital, is one of the most beautiful travel destinations in Europe.

In honor of the IMTM International Tourism Fair in Tel Aviv, after a two-year hiatus due to the Corona, representatives from the Ministry of Tourism of Catalonia and Barcelona came to Israel to remind Israelis why they should travel there during 2022.
