Barcelona is one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the world. It located on the Mediterranean sea,so it has about 4 kilometers of sandy beaches. It has a huge number of attractions including a city centre which retains its medieval street plan; one of the world's most famous streets (the Ramblas, shown, right), some stunning modernist architecture including several buildings by Gaudi (the Sagrada Familia, the Casa Milà...),Spain's most famous architect; dozens of museums including one dedicated to Picasso, another to Miró and yet another to Barcelona's world famous football club, Barça! Barcelona is almost as lively at night as it is during the day and it has a unique, exciting atmosphere, which provides the visitor with a truly unforgettable experience.
There are two major arts festivals during the year, one in the summer (the Grec) and one in the autumn (La Mercé), and there are concerts and shows of different kinds happening all the time.
Barcelona enjoys an almost perfect climate making it an ideal place to be at any time of the year,including winter, temperature always 15-20 degrees.
