As Spain's northeastern region of Catalonia rallies for a 400-kilometre (250-mile) human chain on Spetember 11, 2013 to protest for independence, one sleepy town says it is proudly leading the way to self-rule. Nestled in the valleys of central Catalonia, the town of Sant Pere de Torello symbolically declared itself 'free Catalan territory' on September 3, 2012, the first of dozens of towns and villages to do so across the region.
