Barcelona Travel Guide

In less than twenty years, Barcelona has gone from being a nondescript industrial city with a serious image problem to being one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. The city has grown, and developed, celebrating its Catalan culture, while embracing change and eyeing the future. Perhaps the most significant change in Barcelona’s recent history was the Olympic Games in 1992, and this certainly catalysed change in the city. Coupled with the incredible Sagrada Familia, the growth of La Ramblas as a nightlife area, and the redevelopment and cleaning of the beach area, Barcelona’s ascendancy was assured, and its place as a premier city break destination cemented.
