Where Should I go: Aragon or Catalonia?

Aragon

If you want to head off the beaten track or simply get away from it all, head over to Aragon, Spain, where you won't have any trouble finding peace and quiet or uncovering ancient history in a region yet to be inundated with tourists. The population of Aragon does not exceed 1.5 million and less than a third resides outside of Zaragoza, which will make for the perfect adventure away from the crowds.

Catalonia

Catalonia is a famous autonomous community in Spain. It is situated in the northeastern part of the country and consists of four provinces. The provinces consist of Barcelona, Girona, Lleida and Tarragona. Barcelona is not only the capital of Catalonia, but is also the biggest city in the region. Because Barcelona is such a large city and Catalonia’s long history of international trade, the area is a very popular tourist destination. Another reason for Catalonia’s success is its temperate climate. Two other reasons that make Catalonia different from other areas in Spain are, people speak Catalan, Spanish and Aranese, and its climate has both beaches and mountain ranges.
