Sports tourist destinations in Catalonia

Since 2003, the Catalan Tourism Agency has recognized several municipalities with the distinction of Sports Tourism Destinations (DTE). These destinations are recognized for their specialization and services dedicated to elite athletes, fans and tourists interested in various sports disciplines. Spread throughout Catalonia, each of these cities or towns focuses on certain sporting activities.

Since 2012, the Sports Tourism distinction in Catalonia has expanded, grouping certified destinations not only for their geographical proximity, but also for the similarity in the sports specialties they offer. These destinations must meet specific criteria, such as having adequate infrastructure, being venues for disciplines with a notable international presence, and promoting sports modalities that, at the same time, highlight the unique natural environments of Catalonia. This approach has led to many destinations being recently re-recognized as Sports Tourism Destinations (SDT).

In addition, the populations can also be classified, simultaneously, in pulse of excellence, which make it possible to practice high-level sports in calm and whitewater, high mountains and in the sea; multisport destinations, which, due to their characteristics, can carry out more than four sports activities; and the European Reference Centers, which usually host international championships.

In all these destinations you will find a high degree of specialization, quality services, specialized accommodation, medical centers, commercial activity and a clear vocation to receive visitors. You will feel comfortable enjoying your favorite sport.
