(By Katie/liligo) Too many tourists plan and book flights to Barcelona, without even thinking about the beautiful surrounding Catalan region, including the gorgeous coast alongside it. Get inspired by these videos, taking us from Barcelona to Catalan’s coasts.
We likey like what the Catalan Tourist Board is doing with their newest campaign to lure travellers from sparkly and cultural Barcelona to the region’s incredible and unique coastline. The tourism board commissioned five international filmmakers to capture the five regions of Catalonia. Each using a different technique.
Each of these 2-4 minute videos will take us on a fast-paced trip across beaches, over cities, to the tops of hills and crashing through waves and town streets, inside caves and even to a football match or two. Elena Roig, head of digital marketing at the Catalan tourism board explains,
“Our main aim is projecting – in a cool way – the Catalan way of life, it’s people, traditions, landscapes by giving the filmmakers freedom to their artistic work.”
Our Own South
Nothing can better define a country that its people, its culture and history, framed by its characteristic landscape.”Our Own South” is an imaginary trip through the south of Catalonia, our land. It is difficult to convey with images, the character of a working people, honored and proud of their culture, people who have managed to maintain their identity through the years.
It is an attempt to show some of the most authentic and endearing aspects of this wonderful and uncharted territory.

Lleida: Soul of Catalunya
When you hear the word ¨Catalunya¨ the image of wonderful Barcelona appears in your mind, with its unique rhythm of life and amazing feel. However, you will be pleasantly surprised going only 100 kilometers from the city and getting into the world of the north-western Catalunya, the province of Lleida that boasts its hospitable people with their ancient traditions and splendid nature in its grandeur and diversity! Lleida is the Soul of Catalunya!

In few other cities is it possible to walk from spectacular location to spectacular location. I had a fantastic time adventuring around Barcelona’s winding streets making this film.
