One of the world's most visited cities by tourists lies on the Mediterranean Sea at the foot of the Pyrenees. It is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and a living center of culture, science and industry. It is famous for the Art Nouveau buildings built at the turn of the 20th century, whose main author was Antonio Gaudi and the FC Barcelona football club.
Barcelona is a city with an extremely diverse architecture and character. You can find almost all architectural styles from Romanism to postmodern skyscrapers. The Barri Gotic district impresses with narrow, stone streets leading to the Gothic cathedral of St. Eulalia, and a few hundred meters away for fun and trips to the sea is encouraged by the La Rambla promenade. Above them rises the Montjuic hill, from which you can admire the coast and the panorama of the center. Those who do not like long walks can get here by gondola lift from the port.
Lookouts are Barcelona's specialty. Views of the city can also be admired from the top of the Columbus Column and from the hill Tibidabo located further from the sea, where stands the powerful church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and one of the oldest amusement parks in Europe.
However, what particularly attracts to Barcelona is secession. It was here that Antonio Gaudi, recognized as one of the most outstanding representatives in the world, created. The unfinished Sagrada Familia, the Opera House, the city's villas Casa Mila and Casa Batlo or Park Guell are second to none in the world.
