Where is Catalonia

Catalonia is an autonomous region in northeastern Spain. Because Catalonia is home to more than six million Spanish Catalans, who have their own language and culture, many in the region would like the territory to become an independent nation.

Catalonia’s capital is Barcelona, the host city of the 1992 Summer Olympics.
