Barcelona

Located between the Mediterranean Sea and the hills of Montjuic, ‘Barcelona’ conjures up a whole range of historical and architectural delights for you to feast your eyes on – Parc Guell, the Miro Foundation, las Ramblas, the Sagrada Familia cathedral, the picturesque Boqueria market, the Gothic Quarter or Camp Nou, the FC Barcelona stadium…but Catalonia’s capital is so much more than the structures that surround it.
