The stones of Catalunya speak of the region’s long history, as a Roman colony, as an independent state (with influence throughout the Mediterranean), as a country opposed by the French, and of its renaissance (of culture, rights, and commerce) and its then-current state of autonomy under Francesc Mariá and Companys (following the collapse of Primo de Rivera’s dictatorship).
