The autonomous region of Catalonia borders France and Andorra in the north, the Mediterranean sea in the east, the region of Valencia in the south, and Aragon in the west.

The north Catalan coast is full of cliffs and deep coves where the mountains close in on the coast. One of the most beautiful and residentially developed areas along the coast with regards to tourism is the Costa Brava, that stretches along the beaches of Girona, from cape Creus, in the north, to the mouth of the river Tordera, in the south.

The region has a diverse mountain terrain, including fertile mountain valleys and wide fast-flowing rivers. The mountainous terrain of Catalonia can be divided into three main systems: The Pyrenees, the Mediterranean and the Central depression.

The Pyrenees border the region in the north from west to east. This can further be divided into two parts: The Main Pyrenees (with its central axis) and the pre-Pyrenees, with its parallel spurs. The highest peaks include Puig Pedros (2,911 m), Puigmal (2,913 m), Els Encantats (2.982) and Pica d'Estats (3,143 m). At right angles from the Pyrenees axis, there are numerous lush valleys that open up southwards.
