The capital of Catalonia and second largest city in Spain is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe.

Barcelona’s international recognition grew since hosting the Olympic games in 1992, bringing a massive rise in the tourist industry. The contrast between the new buildings with the old are a remarkable sight, well worth exploring this dynamic city.
