Barcelona, the second city of Spain after Madrid, is a bilingual metropolis (Catalan and Spanish) and an ancient and ever changing city. It is at the same time both rebellious and traditionalist, both elegant and proletarian, it is the Spanish city which has most renewed itself in the last few years.
Art, architecture, good food and nightlife are just some of the attractions of this splendid city. The overlap of different architectural styles in the last three centuries has made the city an authentic open air museum in perfect balance between tradition and modernity.
Barcelona is famous for the architectural works of Gaudì, the eccentric and genial architect: one must visit his Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, La Pedrera (Casa Milà) and Casa Battlò.
A walk in its streets is like going over the different artistic and urban planning concepts in the history of architecture. The extraordinary cultural offer and the infinite possibilities for shopping have turned it into one of the most emerging European destinations, especially in the last 10 years. It’s not by chance, therefore, that in the last five years visits for tourism have surpassed those for business.
Barcelona is one of the most cosmopolitan cities of Spain. Most of the neighbourhoods are melting pots of different ethnicities, even though a clear regional enclave continues to prevail. Another factor to consider is bilingualism. In fact, in Barcelona two official languages coexist: Spanish and Catalan. The latter appears in most road signs, whilst in museums and other tourist sites most information is in several languages.
