Barcelona Travel Guide

Described as the “Paris of Spain” by Hans Christian Andersen, Barcelona is rather like its French cousin - a city of great beauty, immense charm and considerable cultural significance. An evening stroll down one of Barcelona’s old streets, flanked by cafés and bars, is a delightful experience.

Situated along the Mediterranean coast, with towering mountains as a backdrop, the city is the capital of the province of Barcelona, as well as that of the autonomous region of Catalunya. Barcelona’s a major commercial and industrial centre, an important transport hub, and a city bursting with good museums, galleries, medieval monuments and more. And, as if that isn’t enough, Barcelona is also the gateway to some of the region’s hottest tourist spots: the Costa Brava, the Balearic Islands, the Roman city of Tarragona and the Costa Dorada territory.

But even if you don’t step out of Barcelona, rest assured you’ll find plenty to entertain you, within the city itself. Whether you’re looking for Art Nouveau museums, busy markets or traditional Catalan cuisine, this is where it’s at its best: Barcelona.

Did you know? Barcelona is the chocolate producing centre for Spain.
