Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is a cosmopolitan, Mediterranean city where you will find Roman remains and medieval neighbourhoods mixed with some of the best examples of 20th century art nouveau and avant-garde. Explore the vintage glam of La Barceloneta, the bustling fisherman's village leading to the Olympic Village's beaches and enjoy Port Vell's acclaimed restaurants on the tree-lined esplanades.
The winding backstreets offer something new around each corner. The pedestrian streets in the Old Town, the numerous parks and the magnificent waterfront and its modern architectural design all hold their own secrets. At the same time, they are testimony to the successful blend of old and new which characterises the city.
