Protesters distributed food to drivers stuck on the road on Tuesday after they blocked the main highway between Spain and France in Girona.
Footage shows volunteer protesters forming a human chain to carry food items before distributing it to drivers stuck on the AP7 motorway.
On Monday, hundreds of Catalan protesters blocked the highway between Spain and France as they lined both sides of the AP7 highway at the La Jonquera border point.
The direct action was reportedly organised by the Tsunami Democratic activist group, which campaigns for Catalan independence.
The autonomous region has been in the grip of mass protests since mid-October after a court handed lengthy prison sentences to Catalan politicians.
