The city of Barcelona has become a very attractive tourist destination since the Olympic games of 1992.
But Barcelona has a long history of receiving people from abroad since the Romans founded the city and named it Barcino. Barcelona has gone through different periods of prosperity and decadence that have determined the characteristics of the actual city. From the roman ruins under the old city up till the modernist period with the important architecture made by Gaudi, Barcelona is full of delightful treasures to discover. This city surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the mountains on the other, offers many activities to satisfy a visitor whether they are staying a few days, a few weeks or returning for the fifth time. Please be aware, Barcelona can cause addiction!
