Welcome to Barcelona
As the capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is a convergence point for tourists and business travelers. The city, perched on the northeast corner of Spain on the Mediterranean Sea, has served as a major sea port ever since its founding as a Roman city in the Middle Ages. Today more than 5 million people live in the Barcelona metropolitan area, making it the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean and second-largest city in Spain. However, unlike most cities in the country, the main language of Barcelona is Catalan, a combination of Spanish and French. The city boasts a rich cultural heritage, top entertainment attractions and is a leading architectural destination with the works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Navigating from point A to point B? The metropolitan area offers a wide range of public transport, including Metro, FGC and the Tram, which are the most convenient ways of getting around the city. There are six color-coded metro lines as well as a far-reaching bus system. Many travelers enjoy biking around Barcelona, since there are miles of bike lanes and the climate is temperate year-round. If you're in a rush, you can take one of the 11,000 taxis - a green light on the taxi's roof indicates its availability.
Things to Do in Barcelona
With a status as one of the world's major global cities, Barcelona is a hotspot for entertainment, attractions and architecture. Take a tour of one of the quirky houses Gaudi built, go shopping on Las Ramblas or catch a thrilling soccer match at Camp Nou, home of world-class FC Barcelona. The most famous Gaudi masterpieces are the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and La Pedrera. Art lovers won't want to miss the Fundació Joan Miró, a museum that houses a giant collection of paintings by the Spanish surrealist painter. Later, when you climb the Montjuïic Mountain, you'll have stunning views of the city as well as buildings from the 1992 Olympic Games.
Barcelona is also a culinary capital. Dig into pintxos, which are essentially Basque tapas, or devour real tapas accompanied by a good vermouth. After eating, you'll quickly learn that Barcelona never sleeps. The city has an invigorating electronic music scene that brings in the world's top DJs. That's in addition to the wonderful concerts halls, including Gran Teatre del Liceu, L'Auditori and Palau de la Música Catalana.
