The Landscape Observatory and the Cartographic and Geologic Institute of Catalonia (Observatori del Paisatge i Institut Cartogràfic i Geològic de Catalunya) have published the Map of the Landscapes of Catalonia that covers 134 landscapes that have been catalogued and described by the Observatory in the landscape catalogues. The map shows the great diversity and wealth of the landscapes of Catalonia, which is amongst the highest in the European continent. Each landscape (technically called a "landscape unit") is a portion of the territory that has its own character differentiated from the rest. The map also includes the peculiarities and distinctive elements and identifies more than 500 miradors in the landscape catalogues of Catalonia.
