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.

Museu Barbier-Mueller d'Art Precolombí in the Born contains a spell-binding collection of pre-Columbian art from South and Central America. Exhibits are regularly alternated to ensure as much of the collection as possible is on public display.

Among the collection, Aztec, Inca and Mayan treasures are dramatically displayed under spotlights in black rooms, allowing the viewer to fully appreciate the intricacy and beauty of sculptures, masks, jewellery and textiles – some artefacts dating back over 3,000 years.
