There are many different faces to Spain’s most picturesque city. Barcelona is situated between the hills of the Tibidabo and the Mediterranean Sea and the rivers Llobert and Besos. Being surrounded by 4 natural borders makes this city a wonderful place to visit as it mixes an enormous range of urban activities with some fine natural beauty which you would be hard pressed to find in most major cosmopolitan cities. With over 2,000 years of history packed into the Gothic Quarter, the winding streets give way to five unique and vibrant neighbourhoods that can charm even the most jaded of traveler.
Using the 1992 Olympic Games (held at Montjuic Mountain) as a spring board into international stardom, the city is a model when it comes to urban planning.
