Introducing Barcelona

This cool, unique and vibrant capital of Spain’s Catalonia region offers so much for the visitor. With a great mix of city and beach, a fusion of new and old, and a fine balance of luxury and budget activities, there really is something for everyone. Barcelona is a cosmopolitan capital and many know it for its fabulous shopping, incredible nightlife, tasty tapas scene and its famous Gothic and Medieval architecture. But the city is also a hub of art, music and contemporary design. From Gaudi’s incredible mosaics to artisan boutiques, Barcelona is thriving with creativity. And if you don’t want to miss out on the typical Spanish sun, sea and sand, the capital’s coastal escape is just a bus ride away.
