Introducing Barcelona


There are so many places to see in Barcelona, where both the Catalan language and culture has enriched its historical heritage. The famous Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí is one of the stars of the city. Known as "the unfinished church," the Sagrada Familia's interior is just as striking as its exterior and well worth visiting. Gaudí's Park Guell is just as incredible, and is a window into the artist’s imagination and ingenuity. Let La Rambla get your pulse racing while the Picasso and Miró museums feed your soul. And of course, in Barcelona don’t neglect your taste buds – be sure to discover the famous Catalan cuisine.
