We are pretty much hated by everybody, propaganda did it's job.
Greeks perhaps, they are the only nation that supports us almost 100%. They supported us even during the wars.
Historically it would be England. However in the last 150 years it's been a relationship in which we really didn't benefit much, if anything at all, and the general perception we have today is that England views Portugal as being inferior and just a place to go to the beach.
Ironically, our oldest enemy is now our best friend, as it should, considering they are our only neighbours.

I'll have to ask my Swedish friends if this is a signature or not.
A guess, Ireland & Netherlands

Norway, Denmark and Finland. I like Denmark the most, but the opinion of who we're closest to differs a lot depending on the person you ask.
Germany, even if there are some rivalries esp. in terms
of sport, but in important matters they stick together.

Propaganda did its job but you helped a lot too.

Catalonia has no friends.
With England we share a common patron saint and an old parliamentary tradition, and the English supported us in the beginning, as they did with Portugal, yet they eventually betrayed us (How England betrayed the Catalans).
Occitania is our traditional brother stateless nation and there has always been a certain brotherhood, at some times only in educated circles. After all, Occitan is the third official language in Catalonia (while it is not official in Occitania).
For obvious reasons, there has traditionally been some good relationship with a few close stateless nations of Europe (Basqueland, Scotland, Sardinia...), specially Ireland.
Outside Europe, maybe Quebec and some other, but that's only at a politician/institucional level. Obviously there are associations in all countries where there is some Catalan diaspora (mainly in Europe, the Americas, North Africa and Australia).
