Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, sits on the Mediterranean just an hour or so from France. The city, I soon discovered, is a major tourist destination ... and for good reason.

Full of museums showcasing everything from Picasso to Catalonian history and art to chocolate, Barcelona boasts several World Heritage Sites as well as reknowned architectural works of Antoni Gaudi.

Nice pictures. It's no wonder why Barcelona city is so popular. Fabulous architecture, brilliant Spanish cuisine, flamboyant culture and wonderful weather combine to make Barcelona a truly magnificent city. I liked that city has a very good infrastructure and nice service and also that many of Barcelona hotels situated in historical center or close to awesome beaches. Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate, with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers.
It is really amazing and magic city, I like it very much.

Barcelona is a really beautiful place and for sure it's worth visiting. It's one of those places you want to move to after visiting.
It's so beautiful, so vibrant, the city that never sleeps and would never bore you. I've been to Barcelona 5 times and I get to know it better and better and like it more and more.
One of the greatest things in Barcelona is its architecture. It's not only Antonio Gaudi who makes it special but every building in Barcelona is different and one is more beautiful then another.

You are right, Barcelona is an intriguing city. However, I must say that when I think of the place my heart knows to be "home," it's Provence.
