Costa Dorada


Barcelona is one of Europe's leading tourist destinations, and it is easy to understand why. With an ideal location situated directly on the Mediterranean coast in the northeast corner of Spain, with the French border and the Pyrenees Mountains just a couple hours to the north and the Costa Dorada including Sitges just to the south. Barcelona boasts over 4km of beachfront making it a popular summertime destination, but the overall mild Mediterranean climate makes it a great option year round.

The city has a wealth of history and culture, which can be explored throughout the plentitude of museums (the Picasso Museum, the Joan Miró Foundation and the National Museum of Catalan Art (MACBA) to name a few), galleries, theaters and concert halls. Or attend one of the many cultural events hosted in the city such as the annual Grec Fest or the La Mercè festival. Barcelona is also widely known as a mecca of must-see architecture ranging from the 4th century remnants of the Roman Empire in the Gothic Quarter to the early 20th century modernism works of the famous Antoni Gaudí scattered all over the city.

Barcelona is a city of action with an unmatched energy. Take advantage of the vibrant nightlife from seaside clubbing, to big name concerts, to all night festival celebrations. Or visit the bohemian neighborhood of Gràcia hopping from patio to patio throughout its numerous plazas or plan an outdoor bbq escape up the mountain of Montjuïc. Whether it be a concert, a festival, or an international DJ, there is something happening every night of the week.

Recently, Spain in general has been leading in the area of sports from football, to tennis, to the Formula 1 and the Tour de France. Most notably to Barcelona, their home football team, FC Barcelona, has been ranked the best football team in Europe, winning the Copa del Rey, La Liga, and the UEFA Champions League in the 2008-2009 season. Come to Barcelona to catch a live game or take a tour of the famous Camp Nou stadium.

Furthermore, Barcelona is widely known for its leisurely aspects of shopping and eating. With over 2,000 restaurants ranging from small family owned cafes to internationally renowned gastronomical delights, and even as many shops offering all things from high fashion designer labels to one of a kind vintage treasures, one can literally spend days taking part in just these two activities alone.

It is impossible to classify Barcelona as one particular kind of city. With its international diversity, rich cultural history, abundance of activities and events to take part it, and hundreds of sites to see, Barcelona is guaranteed not to disappoint.
