What to see in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the most cosmopolitan and colorful cities of Europe. The city has 5000 years of history starting by Iberians, going on with Carthaginians, Romans, Omayyads etc. Today Barcelona is a city of arts, architecture, science, nightlife, gastronomy and tourism. The city is also famous with the extraordinary works of modernist artist Antoni Gaudi. His masterpiece La Sagrada Familia Church is the primary symbol of the city. Other important and worth to see buildings of Gaudi are; Casa Batllo, Casa Mila, Palau Güell and Parc Güell. Of course there are much more places to see in the city; Gothic Quarter, Las Ramblas Boulevard, Montjuic Mountain, Boqueria Food Market, Picasso Museum, The Cathedral, Poble Espanyol and much more places. But unfortunately all these touristic attractions are far from each other and most of the times you will see long ticket lines before entrance. If you like to see all these places in a well organized way and in a a few days we recommend you to find an english speaking private tour guide in Barcelona.
