Barcelona is a unique city, every visit, every corner, every experience is special, and that is one of the greatest magnets we have; each visit becomes a story.
When we speak about Mediterranean culture, we can place Barcelona as the epicentre of meaning; good food, good climate, good standards of living, beautiful landscapes, sea, mountains, architecture, leisure, work, a welcoming society, security, among many other things that makes the people show their passionate side.
Barcelona is a city with human measures; it is possible to walk everywhere, or almost. Anyway, it is a city with a great dynamism, never sleeps; day and night there is always activity, there are always people, there is always movement.
Freedom is one of the strengths, and that is why all kinds of people feel comfortable. At the same place, there are locals, pubs, restaurants, etc. for all kinds of tastes and pockets.
The Catalan capital has more than two thousand years of history, a fact that is full of wealth, both cultural and architectural, as it is possible to be wrapped in ancient Roman walls, stroll through narrow medieval streets, or walk along modern avenues that the Olympic Games left to the city in 1992. There are so many small details and places to discover, and full of stories to learn and live.
Barcelona is known for its great cultural offer in all areas; sports events such as formula 1 or football games, led by Barça; musical, with festivals such as Sonar, Primavera Sound or Cruïlla. Some of the biggest concerts such as U2 or Cold Play are always full of international fans; museums like CCCB or MNAC; theatres as Apolo or Liceu. Every season can be enjoyed in its way.
Catalan modernism is one of the greatest exponents in the city, and Gaudí his icon; Parc Guell, Sagrada Familia or La Pedrera, some of the examples.
If we think about a food theme park can be like walking around Barcelona, where you can travel, through the taste, to countries like Italy, Romania, France, Hungary or Syria. We cannot forget about the excellence of local food, without any doubt, one of the highly recommended activities.
A Mediterranean city but with a clearly Europeanist vocation, Barcelona has preserved its particular elegance, which makes the visitor experience even more special.
Barcelona and its people are very committed to the environment, whether environmental, social or economic. From the city hall till the citizens, all we fight to respect the environment, recycle, welcome disadvantaged people, or encourage initiatives to make a more inclusive and welcoming society that can offers more equal opportunities.
