Vivacious, ambitious, industrious: Barcelona is second to none

This cool, cosmopolitan metropolis is the bastion of Catalan nationalism and one of the greatest port cities on the Mediterranean. Barcelona’s distinct culture finds exuberant expression in its architecture – in the sinuous swirls of its Modernista buildings, in the other-worldly weirdness of Park Güell and in the soaring spires of the Sagrada Família. A stroll along the Rambla, Barcelona’s famed promenade, reveals a city of irrepressible energy and a proud and unique identity.

Montjuïc is a mountain full of secrets and stuff to see. After climbing to the top you’ll first find the Catalunya National Gallery. Behind it there is a botanical garden and for those who prefer modern art, the Miró Foundation. There’s also an Olympic stadium, Olympic museum and Montjuïc castle with some of the best views in Barcelona. All of these are linked by beautiful gardens that make up Barcelona’s biggest park area.

This mountain seems empty but it is full of art and the cultural history of Barcelona. Especially la Fundació Miró for the quality art exhibitions. Probably one of the most quiet and unknown areas in Barcelona.
