Barcelona

About the city

La Vanguardia is the name of one of the city’s newspaper, and the vanguard is exactly where Barcelonans are used to finding themselves, for they are residents of Spain’s most progressive city. Beautiful, sprawling Barcelona, filling a great basin ringed with hills on the western end of the Mediterranean, is the embodiment of Catalonia’s artistic genius and commercial inventiveness. Divided into 10 districts each with its own character, the Gothic Quarter is a splendid medieval quarter and the old part of town, which stretches from the seafront to La Rambla. It is here that you’ll find the city’s oldest buildings, narrow streets, churches and the cathedral, La Seu. It also has a good selection of bars, cafes and some quirky independent stores. La Rambla, the most famous street in the city, runs through the heart of the city and provides outdoor theatre on a grand scale. The famous Eixample holds many of Antoni Gaudi’s famous modernist buildings. By far the most famous and extravagant site in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia. If he building is ever completed, it will lokk like a model in the crypt, in the meantime, don’t pass up the opportunity to climb or be lifted to the towers, and wander amid the bridges, steps and crannies of the façade. Barcelona is a great city for arts from opera to architecture, and the meeting point between Spain and the rest of Europe.
