Spain has fifty provinces, and one of them is Catalonia, and the municipality of Barcelona is its capital. Catalonia is an autonomous community, and it has its own distinct culture, language, and social activities. Catalonians speak a language that is not traditional Spanish. They speak Catalan, and most of the people in this province are bilingual, so they also speak Spanish. During governmental proceedings, Catalan is spoken to reinforce their independence; however, if you would visit this area, you would be able to discern the two different languages. Madrid is the capital of Spain, where architecture and culture are quite different.

Madrid has a more modern style as opposed to Catalonia's more traditional flair. In Spain, there is an overall notion that it is the struggle for power that keeps them alive, kicking, and fighting. Bullfighting is their most popular pastime. In Catalonia, it is the importance of teamwork, which keeps them thriving, which is evident through the human building of castles. Catalonians are very hard workers, while the Spaniards are thrill and entertainment seekers. In Spain, the food is also much different from Catalonia. Spain and Madrid are known for paella and chorizo sausage, whereas Catalonian food is influenced by French cuisine, and because it is near the ocean, they pair meat and seafood together. Whichever area you choose to visit, there will be many beautiful and exciting things to experience.
