La Garriga
De Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre
http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Garriga

La Garriga es un municipio español, situado en la provincia de Barcelona, dentro la comarca del Vallés Oriental.

La Garriga es conocida en toda Cataluña por su industria más importante, la del mueble, por sus aguas termales, por sus edificios

modernistas y por las alfombras que se realizan durante la fiesta del Corpus Christi.
Su situación cercana a Barcelona, su clima, y la presencia de aguas termales convirtieron a La Garriga en uno de los lugares de veraneo

preferidos de la burguesía catalana de comienzos del siglo XX, hecho que propició la construcción de edificios modernistas en la

población.
La Garriga fue una de las poblaciones catalanas bombardeadas por la aviación franquista durante la Guerra Civil. De hecho, hoy en día

aún se conserva un refugio antiaéreo, al que se pueden realizar visitas guiadas.
La villa romana de Can Terrés se encuentra ubicada al sur del término municipal y fue construida en el siglo I a. C. Se trataba de un

edificio de unos 200 m2, y por su buen estado de conservación, se considera uno de los asentamientos rurales de época romana más

relevantes del patrimonio cultural catalán.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
