A Sneak Peek into Two Most Popular Tourist Hotspots in Barcelona

It is best to describe Barcelona as a cosmopolitan city unlike any other city in Europe. The city is packed with a series of excitements thanks to its strategic location on the Spanish coast.

So how does the geographical position make Barcelona a privileged city? It is owing to the great positional advantage that Barcelona gives you everything-right from sun to mountains to sea and a lot more. The place is also considered among the most livable spots in Europe.

Reaching Barcelona has become easier over the years. There is hardly any dearth of transport options around. Two major lost cost air carriers run regular services between Barcelona and other important cities of Europe. The flights will either land at El Prat, on the outskirts of Barcelona or at Girona airport, which is an hour’s drive from the main city.

Apart from a great location, there are several other things that make Barcelona weekends worth considering. To begin with, there is the Gothic quarter or the Barrio Gotico. Located centrally, the place is among the most visited spots during Barcelona weekends. In terms of history, the buildings go several centuries back to the time when the Romans ruled over Spain. The Cathedral of Santa Eulalia is a major landmark here. Constructed through a considerable part of the middle ages, it stands atop the Visiogothic Church. The cathedral is dedicated to the memory of Barcelona’s co-patron saint- Eulalia. Your Barcelona weekends would remain virtually incomplete without a single trip to either of the above mentioned spots

The El Raval neighborhood is another gem in the crown of Spain’s second largest city. Located close to the Gothic Quarters, it is part of a district known as Ciutat Vella. There was a time when the place had developed a notorious reputation as the breeding ground for prostitution and crime. However, it underwent a scrub-up campaign and is today home to the budding artist population of the city. From stag weekends to hen weekends- the reasons for choosing Barcelona weekends may vary, but once you are there, be sure to visit the two spots listed above.
