Barcelona is Spain’s second-largest city, but its distinct history and regional culture make it anything but a small-scale Madrid. Its personality, architecture, customs, proximity to France, and long-term importance as a Mediterranean seaport make it a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city. The whole region of Catalonia, especially its capital city of Barcelona, has long resisted absorption by Castile-dominated central authority. Catalans pride themselves on their industriousness and prosperity, both immediately evident to the visitor. Barcelona is a fascinating, bustling, and charming city that will enchant you. Barcelona is a vivacious city that blends the historic structures of the old town with the scores of buildings left by the upsurge of modernism. Plan on staying three nights to explore fully the delights of the city.
