Amazing City of Barcelona

Amazing City of Barcelona
Barcelona is the second largest metropolis in Spain.
Being one of its major travel destinations, the city of Gaudi and Catalonia’s capital, a cultural hub, a culinary heaven, and almost certainly the finest beach city in Europe.
Blessed with a privileged location between the vibrant shores of the Mediterranean Sea and the spectacular Collserola mountain range, the sprawling metropolis features 10 main districts, each of them with its own particular feel and priceless architectural wonders.

The most rousing of all, Ciutat Vella (Old Town) is the beating heart of Barcelona. Equally charming, L’Eixample and Gracia balance the medieval allure of the historic centre with a contemporary layout, wide avenues, and precious, awe-inspiring Modernista architecture. Eixample- Enjoy the gorgeous beauty of Barcelona in the luxury of some of the most elegant area. Central streets of the city where you will be able to explore the enchanting atmosphere typical of Gaudi's Barcelona.

Each district features a cluster of interesting neighbourhoods, making from Barcelona an incredibly varied, dynamic city with numerous faces and personalities.
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Gothic Quarter - was marked by the point where the two main streets, the Cardo and Decumanus, converged. The original Quarter Gothic centre, the Plaça del Rei proudly showcases the architectural ensemble made up of the royal residences of the Catalan-Aragonese monarchs. One can enjoy the charm of old Barcelona and the luxury of some of the most elegant buildings in the of Roman and medieval Barcelona still form the core of 21st-century. Its maze of narrow streets and squares is steeped in the city's past and present. Gotic neighbourhood.

El Born - The heart of the district is undoubtedly the picturesque Passeig del Born 'square' (in fact it's an oblong). At one end of the Passeig Del Born (known as the Paseo del Born in Spanish) raises the district's most famous building, the wonderful Santa Maria del Mar church.
Other than the joys of medieval architecture, and the aforementioned Picasso Museum, El Born is characterised by its little treasures- this fashionable district is the place where you'll chance upon innovative boutique shops.
The Barceloneta - is a triangular spit of land that cuts into the sea boats in the old harbour, or Barcelona's Port Vell, on one side, and sandy beaches on the other. The neighbourhood, with its narrow, rectilinear streets, was built on a military grid structure to provide accommodation for the former inhabitants of La Ribera who had lost their homes due to the construction of the citadel. The houses were low-rise and small in scale so as not to obstruct views of the city.

On the sand and inside the neighbourhood, rows of restaurants and bars combine with the traditional images of locals sitting in their chairs in the street and narrow balconies displaying clothes drying in the sun.
