The capital city of the Catalan region is one of Spain’s jewels.
Located on the north-east coast, the Costa Brava, Barcelona has a sunny and warm climate all year round.
Barcelona the cradle of the Catalan culture overwhelms visitors with it's hospitality, and cultural richness. The fashionable and buzzing city has a rich and tightly-knit cultural tempo to it; excitement can be felt everywhere, yet, the relaxed and friendly manner of these people never fails to reach out to you and to leave you with a smile.
You will find some of the greatest concerts, jazz bars, newest theatres, exhibitions, galleries, restaurants, and avant-garde clubs here; and architecturally speaking, Barcelona is full of versatile impressions and it is fun to experience them.
