NO BORDER PLEASE...

The Treaty of the Pyrenees (1659) severed Catalonia from a part of its territory creating the French-Spanish border.


The geographic and cultural boundary of

the country to the north was and still is

the line of the Corbieres hills.


The Pyrenees never constitued a natural border but -on the contrary- a refuge and

a dynamic area for economic activities.

 SOUTH CATALONIA

 The Spanish side of the country

 stretches from the Pyrenees to

 Delta de l'Ebre. Andorra and the

 Balear Islands do not belong to Catalonia

 but share the same language and culture.
