Destination Management Barcelona
Barcelona is progressive, industrious and European, whilst still preserving the traditional values and way of life typical of the pleasant climes of the Mediterranean.
This dichotomy between tradition and progress is characteristic not only of the city itself but also of its inhabitants. In the realms of architecture and art, Gaudi and Miró are doubtless Barcelona’s most notable Spanish talents, but even non-native artists could not resist its magical attraction: Picasso, Isozaki, Meier, Foster and Oldenburg have all left impressive examples of their work as a legacy.
In the ancient heart of the city there are stunning examples of Gothic art and architecture. As one wanders through the narrow streets it is like returning to a bygone age. The imposing cathedral and the church of Santa Maria del Mar recall the traditional Catholic heritage which persists through to the modern age.
