Dark, Gothic façades of the Barrio Gotico, innovative and coloured buildings of the Modernistas, skyline-piercing surreal towers of Sagrada Familia and marvelous majestic constructions of Jean Nouvel or Herzog and de Meuron – this city has millions of faces and a proud sense of identity....
Situated in the northeast of Spain on the Iberian coast, Barcelona enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and cooler winters but no extremes of temperature or weather. The city itself is protected from cold winds that often blow from the Pyrenees across Catalonia by the mountains near Barcelona. This makes it an ideal year round destination.
You will never find anything similar in the whole world. You will never forget the streets of Barcelona lined with breathtaking works of architecture and its gorgeous sun-drenched beaches and panoramic views of the city. One of the ways to discover the city is to go on foot. Without a doubt, the most popular attraction for tourists is the city's modernista architecture and the works of Antoni Gaudi in particular. These include: Sagrada Familia, impressive both outside and in, Park Guell and La Pedrera. Then, you are advised to follow the footsteps of the artistic genius of Pablo Picasso as you visit the musems and the landmarks that shaped his youth. The best option for your evening break will be sampling the seafood and vine, for which Barcelona has a certain status.
The most authentic visitor experience - is the trip along Barcelona's beautiful coast line on a boat. You'll have a lot of fun as you sail out of the old harbour, the Port Vell and various other locations, and enjoy unusual, attractive views with a Mediterranean flavour with the sea breeze in your hair.
