LIVING IT means mingling with Catalans and experiencing their own traditions. Going to local events, festivals and other important festivities of our calendar. Living singular customs wherever in Catalonia the event is on, instead of only visiting the country.

We believe that living the tradition the same way a local does and surrounded by locals, makes the event a unique, real and unforgettable experience for the traveler. Travelers will feel welcome in Catalonia and will return home with far more than photos and beautiful postcards, but great experiences to explain.
