Barcelona is the symbol par excellence of the best entertainment and leisure activities that Spain offers in the third millennium. Located on the northeast coast and washed by the Mediterranean Sea, it is an ongoing meeting of young people from all over Europe who want to live to the end of the Spanish "movida". At sunset, in fact, Barcelona offers all sorts of fun until dawn.
Barcelona is part of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia and the largest city in Spain after Madrid. It offers unbridled fun in number of places, the main reason of tourism of younger generations, and the wealth of both centuries of history and the Catalan culture, well identified in the spoken language in Catalonia which is different from Spanish.
When the Romans occupied Spain, they already found a settlement which they extended for commercial purposes. The grandeur of the Catalan city continued after the arrival of the Aragonese in the twelfth century. In recent decades it is experiencing another golden moment for the continuous arrival of tourists fascinated by the architectural beauty of the old town.
Each district, or Barrio in Spanish, is an interesting place with unique features. Just walking down the streets you may discover evidence of the glorious past. The Cathedral of Santa Eulalia is located in Ciutat Vella, while the Sagrada Familia cathedral is the most valuable work projected, yet unfinished, by the architect Gaudì, dating back to the late nineteenth century. You can't miss to visit other famous works of Gaudi like the Park Guell, the Casa Batllo and the Casa Mila (La Pedrera). Very interesting landmarks are also the Modern Art Museum, the Mirò Museum and the Erotic Museum.
At night you can walk along Las Ramblas, famous for the numerous street artists, to reach the Old Port where you can have dinner in tipical restaurants and taste paella...and after dinner dancing in the Mare Magum Center and drinking sangria.
In spring Barcelona guests the Formula One Grand Prix.
