The best Cosmopolitan City
sited between the Sea (Mediterranean) and the Mountains, has found a formidable balance. A city with Roman remains, medieval quarters and the most beautiful examples of 20th century Modernism and avant-garde. Barcelona has the reputation of being the most cosmopolitan, modern city, with emblematic constructions by the Catalan architects Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Doménech i Montaner declared World Heritage Sites by the UNESCO.
A wide cultural programme will take visitors to museums, exhibitions, open-air sculptures, thematic restaurants and many concerts, plays and dances.
Strolling around the streets of Barcelona will bring surprises at every turn. Pedestrian streets in the old quarter, green spaces, and a splendid seafront with a range of modern facilities are a reflection of its multi-faceted character. Barcelona has cleverly succeeded in embracing its past without forgetting its commitment to the future.
