Barcelona…the city marked by Gaudi with his bewildering yet exquisite structures and by a slew of surrealist landmarks has many different faces. Barcelona FC has put Barcelona on the top of the world football map and camp Nobu is now one of the top visited attractions of Catalonia. The Royal Gold Medal of Architecture has been exclusively awarded to Barcelona for its fantasy inspired cityscape so know that this is no ordinary city.
While in Barcelona you should collect experiences like inhaling the scent of fresh fruit and Spanish cheese at Boqueria in Raval or wandering through an ancient Spanish village in Poble Espanyol. Or you can hang out in areas like Port Olimpic and Passeig El Born which are best known for their profusion of restaurants and bars…the best showcase of urban Barcelona life.
Near Passeig El Born is the La Rambla area (arguably Europe’s most famous street) which is a haven of landmarks and street performers …just 15 minutes away from the beach. Now that you are here in Barcelona, revel in its beaches (all of them are manmade) or dive into one of the casinos or restaurants that form an unbroken chain from the Hotel Arts to the sea and admire the fabulous view.
When you feel like shopping, stuff your bags at the Portal de l Angel that’s Spain’s most expensive and busy street or when you feel like dancing head off to Razzmatazz where giant speakers are suspended from the ceilings.
