Less than two hundred kilometres from the French border, Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city, which the Mediterranean opens to the rest of the world, this way establishing a bond with other cultures and producing a history marked by diversity.

Magnificent examples of artistic trends throughout the ages can be found here providing a great Romanesque, Gothic and above all Modernista legacy, the latter represented by the work of architectural genius Antoni Gaudí. But there is more. The city combines with nature to produce delightful locations like Montjuïc and Parc Güell, as well as dream spots on beaches near the city centre.
