It was called the Roman Mare Nostrum owing to the fact that all the land on its shores had been conquered by Rome. Before then, it had played an important role in history, with Phoenicians, Greeks and Carthaginians as protagonists, since its waters bathed the three peninsulas of Southern Europe (Iberia, Italy and the Balkans) and one of Asia (Anatolia). And it will continue to play an important role. Because speaking about the Mediterranean is the same as referring to a gentle climate that has always favoured human occupation; a cuisine that is rich in products from the sea and vegetables; in short, a culture.
The Spanish Mediterranean stretches of along Catalonia, Valencia, Murcia and the Balearic Islands and part of East Andalusia. A territory that offers many tourist attractions: beaches, historical-artistic heritage, natural reserves, popular festivals, traditions, gastronomy, sports activities… The options are many and varied.
