It's spoken in the east and northeast regions of Spain, mostly in the
territories known as Catalonia (Catalunya), Valencian Country (País
Valencià) and Balear Islands. The South East departments of France also
have Catalan speakers, and it is the official language of the tiny
country of Andorra, in the Pyrenees. It is also spoken in the small town
of L'Alguer, in Sardinia (Italy).

In all, there must be around 7-9M users of the Catalan language in these

Bona vesprada! ;)
