2 Population Right now there are about 7.2 million people living in Catalans. 70% of the people there are living in Barcelona. Its imperial force is usually spread across the Mediterranean.

3 Location Catalans is about the size of Maryland. It is located in the northeastern corner of Spain. This part of Spain is mostly dominated by the Pyrenees. Their highest point is called Pico de Aneto.

4 Location (continued) Catalans is divided into four parts. These four parts are Lleida, Girona, Barcelona, and Tarragona. In 2006 Catalans population made up 15% of Spain. Their birth rate is relatively low.

5 Language Catalans language is a Romance language like French or Italian. The language is also spoken with regional varieties. The road signs on the streets are written in Catalan and in national language, Castilian.

6 Language (continued) The Catalan language is very similar to the Provencal language which is spoken in southern France. In the 1930 to the mid-1970 s the Catalan language was suppressed and not heard by the French. Now you can hear it on television and on the radio.

7 Language (continued) Every year the number of people speaking Catalan is rising by 20,000. But still only half of the population can speak Catalan. Even if they do not speak the language some of the people say that they can understand some of what people are saying.

8 Folklore Their tradition is very rich and distinctive. A lot of their religious festivals has a lot of folkloric component. Also it is common to have a civic processions like gegants and capgrossos are paraded. Also it is common to have competitions of colles (teams) of costellers.

9 Folklore (continued) In Catalonia a castell is a human built structure that is made during festivals. Most of their members come from town of Valls. The town is in the southern part of the country.

10 Folklore (continued) In their festivals fires play a big role in their celebrations. In the celebrations the correfocs are the most striking of them. The word correfocs comes from men dressed in devil costumes and throws firecrackers and small rockets in the streets.

11 Religion In Catalans most of the people there are Roman Catholic. As time went on and things became more modern the religion in Catalans decreased. Even though the people in Catalans still go to church for baptisms and weddings with the right rituals most of the people do not attend church regularly.

12 Religion (continued) Recently in the 1990 s up to now there has been a lot of immigration that has occurred. That has lead to a lot of Muslims in this area and all around Spain. After all of that Islam has became the second largest religion next to Roman Catholics.
