Why Visit Barcelona?

Barcelona is the second biggest city in Spain and is located on the coast of the north-eastern shore. Capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia, Barcelona is famous for its stunning architecture, unique culture, beautiful beaches and of course, its football team, which dominates the global sport scene.

Undoubtably Barcelona’s best-known attraction is the Sagrada Familia, a one of a kind church that is still being constructed to this day and has been under construction for the past 140 years. A trip to Barcelona also wouldn’t be complete without a walk down La Rambla, the city’s most famous street.
