Barcelona Accommodation

Barcelona embraces two thousand years of history. It’s a diverse city located on the Northeastern Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is also the second largest city in Spain in terms of size and population.

More than being Catalonia’s capital and enterprising hub, Barcelona has managed to preserve its historic Gothic center in an almost intact state. A fusion of the old and new is evident in this multi-faceted city. Diverse cultures and influences meet in Barcelona because it is open to innovation. Culture and arts flourish in this city and this is unmistakable on the grid-like layout of Eixample, the urban planning project of the 19th century. This maze of narrow streets attracts tourists from around the world.

Some must-see destinations in Barcelona include La Rambla, five separate streets cojoined from one end to another. This bustling area is tree-lined and suitable for strolling during the afternoons. Mime artists and peddlers line the boulevard. A few blocks northeast of La Rambla is the nucleus of ancient Barcelona.

The Barri Gotic area boasts a myriad of medieval Gothic buildings, interconnecting walkways, cafes, bars and very affordable accommodation. The Museo Picasso, Barcelona’s most visited museum, is also a must-visit because it is housed in three magnificent stone mansions on the Carrer de Montcada. Lastly, every Barcelona visitor should view La Sagrada Familia, which is truly a sight to behold. The unfinished cathedral, the life’s work of Antoni Gaudi, is an imposing figure on the Barcelona skyline. Numerous sculptures deck the stone-made sanctuary.

With its seaside location and Olympic village, Barcelona is a melting pot of cultures, influence and experience. There is more to it than meets the eye. Truly, it a city worth indulging in.
