Spain and Catalonia stood neutral during World War I. Nevertheless, our industry took advantage of the sale of arms to both opponents
Although Spain was officially non-belligerent in World War II, we took part in the conflict:

1. Spanish fascists supported the German and Italian armies in the battle of Stalingrad.

2. The Republican refugees from the Spanish Civil war joined the French army. Thousands of them were imprisoned in concentration camps, especially in Mauthausen
It was a conflict between the Nationalists (fascist party) and Republicans (democrats).
The fascists won the war and established a dictatorship that lasted 35 years.
After 35 years without freedom and without rights, the dictator Francisco Franco died in 1975 and the government established a Democracy.
Spain became a Parliamentary Monarchy.
In 1986 Spain joined EU

Special Dates
On 12th October 1492, Christopher Columbus first reached the American continent

11th September
On 11th September 1714 Catalonia lost all its autonomic rights and became part of the Spanish Crown. On this date, we pay homage to those who died defending our history, identity and culture.
The Mysterious Light of Manresa
This is a deeply-rooted tradition in Manresa. According to the legend, on 21st February 1345 a mysterious light came from the top of the Montserrat mountain and reached the altar of one of the local churches. Thanks to this miracle, Manresa was granted permission to built an irrigation system which allowed the city to prosper

Catalonia is living an important part of its history. Most of the Catalan population has been considering the possibility of becoming an independent state but still being part of the EU.
Until now, the Spanish government has been refusing the demands of the Catalan society including a referendum. That's why there have been several demonstrations supporting our right to express our opinion (the last one, the Catalan Way).
