  • Catalunya Guide | Spain Travel | Rough Guides
    1930s anarchist communist and socialist parties all established major power bases in Catalunya The Civil War to the present day In 1931 after the fall of the dictator General Primo de Rivera a Catalan Republic was proclaimed and its autonomous powers guaranteed by the new Republican government Any incipient separatism collapsed however with the outbreak of the Civil War during which Catalunya was a bastion of the Republican cause Barcelona holding out until January 1939 In revenge Franco pursued a policy of harsh suppression attempting to wipe out all evidence of Catalan cultural and economic primacy Among his more subtle methods was the encouragement of immigration from other parts of Spain in order to dilute regional identity Even so Catalunya remained obstinate the scene of protests and demonstrations throughout the dictatorship and after Franco s death a Catalan government was formally reinstated in 1979 This the semi autonomous Generalitat enjoys a high profile and is gradually extending its power and the local police or Mossos d Esquadra continue to replace the national forces Read More More about Spain Itineraries Features Where Next Check out Barcelona Book a hostel in Spain Travel Offers Travel insurance Hotels Hostels Car hire Tours Explore The Costa Brava Girona and around Figueres La Garrotxa Vic The Catalan Pyrenees The south Find out more Català Català Your main problem throughout Catalunya is likely to be the language Català Catalan Català has more or less taken over from Castilian a phenomenon known as the venganza revenge though few visitors realize how ingrained and widespread the language is and sometimes commit the error of calling it a dialect On paper Català looks like a cross between French and Spanish and is generally easy to understand if you know those two but spoken it has a distinct rounded sound and is far harder to come to grips with especially away from Barcelona where accents are stronger When Franco came to power publishing houses bookshops and libraries were raided and Català books destroyed While this was followed by a let up in the mid 1940s the language was still banned from the radio TV daily press and most importantly schools which is why many older people today cannot necessarily write Català even if they speak it all the time As for Castilian in Barcelona virtually everyone can speak it while in country areas many people can sometimes only understand not speak it Català is spoken in Catalunya proper part of Aragón much of Valencia the Balearic Islands the Principality of Andorra and in parts of the French Pyrenees albeit with variations of dialect it is thus much more widely spoken than several better known languages such as Danish Finnish and Norwegian It is a Romance language stemming from Latin and more directly from medieval Provençal and lemosi the literary French of Occitania Spaniards in the rest of the country tend to belittle it by saying that to get a Català word you just cut a Castilian one in half In
