Barcelona – the “jewel of the Mediterranean” – is modern, cultural, commercial, recreational, cosmopolitan, and unforgettably beautiful. Located in northeast Spain, it lies near the French border on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea; and the residents speak two major languages – Catalan and Castilian Spanish.
Just decades ago, few tourists would have considered visiting the northern Spanish city of Barcelona. However, this once rather rundown industrial centre that seemed to have little to offer has undergone a seismic change that culminated in the hosting of the Olympic Games in 1992, an event which completely transformed Barcelona. As well as a string of purpose built sporting developments springing up all over the city – with the epicentre on the slopes of Montjuïc – Barcelona benefited from major investments that saw the face of the city dramatically change.
Barcelona has become something of a Mecca for the world’s top architects who have flocked here to conjure up an array of modern structures and avant-garde designs. Many have drawn their inspiration from the seminal work of Barcelona’s most famous son, the modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, whose unique style can still be savoured around the city in a number of key buildings. His masterpiece is the unfinished Sagrada Familia cathedral, but his work even can be seen in the lampposts and fountains of Plaça Reial. Fortunately the rush of new construction has not completely dwarfed the older buildings as the old and new architectural styles harmoniously combine.
With a balmy year round climate – not too steamily hot in summer and with few genuinely cold days in winter – it is not surprising that Barcelona is attracting an increasing number of visitors. Indeed Barcelona has entered the millennium as one of Europe’s most popular short break destinations.
