Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is the most cosmopolitan city on the Mediterranean coast with Roman remains, medieval quarters, and magnificent examples of Modernism and avantgarde architecture from the twentieth century. Thanks to the rich history of the city and the region, Barcelona is a paradise for the  architecture and art lovers.

Culture, style, and harmony are three words that come to mind when describing the heart of Barcelona. It is a bustling seaside city and port with a fascinating cultural and historical heritage, as well as a distinct ambiance and lovely architecture. Catalonia's central region entices visitors with its mild climate and relaxed lifestyle, as well as surreal buildings - Gaudi masterpieces, beaches and the sea, delicious cuisine,  and entertainment to satisfy all tastes.

A stroll around Barcelona's streets will reveal surprises at every turn. The city is home to Roman relics, medieval quarters and cathedrals, and modernism and modernity sculptural and architectural treasures. Barcelona is the city that inspired Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró, and where it can be wandered aimlessly through its streets, stumbling into charming corners, listening to street musicians, or enjoying a meal in a cozy café.

Come and explore it for yourself.
