Barcelona, the famous Catalonian capital is among the privileged cities of Spain. It is situated on the north-east region of Iberian Peninsula, on the warm Mediterranean coasts. This town is big, both in terms of local population as well as size. This wonderful place is popular for its affluent customs, glorious Roman history, diverse culture, explicit geographical location and micro climate.

History:

The city was founded by Roman rulers in 2nd century BC. Since then, it has been a constant source of conflict among different Roman rulers for different reasons. The city effectively preserves the remains of Gothic art in form of renowned artifacts and monuments that were constructed during early Roman period. Also, narrow avenues and grid-like infrastructure of the old city make it unique and creative.

As time gradually passed, Barcelona experienced immense political and economic growth because of rapid industrialization and urbanization that began in mid nineteenth century. Art, Architecture and Culture are prominent assets of Barcelona today. The city itself is a combination of diverse cultures and multi-faceted arts that were derived from other Spanish cities.

Top Tourist Attractions:

The Collserola National Park situated in this town is a home to unique Mediterranean biodiversity. You can witness different varieties of oak, pine trees and plenty of other floral species. Rockrose, heather and broom are among the most stunning flowering plants found on the sunlit, brimming slopes of neighboring hills.

Other tourist venues located near this park are Natural Reserve of Fort Grofa and Saint Medir Monastery.There are some excellent beaches in Estepona which are a center of attraction for tourists

Montserrat, situated on the outskirts of Barcelona owns a strange spiritual importance. It is regarded as the spiritual center of Catalonia where the guardian souls of the city exist.

Barcelona also includes stadiums and sports grounds that organize football tournaments, bull fighting and other adventurous activities.

Monastery of Saint Benedictine (built during sixteenth century) and La Moreneta (designed during twelfth century) are well-known historical centers. You can access them via cars, cable cars, buses or trains.

Apart from this, plenty of beaches surrounding the outer coastal region of the town are inhabited by tourists all throughout the year because they’re center for water sports, beach activities, casual strolls, windsurfing, evening siesta and family picnics.

In short, the city of Barcelona offers plenty of treasures for people belonging to different age groups. You should visit it at least once in your life.
