Modernity & Identity
Although being Spain's second city, Barcelona is without a doubt the first city in the heart of the proud and unique region of Catalonia. The omnipresent lively culture spread across the city clearly states that nowadays, Barcelona is Spain's Culture capital, and one of the most cosmopolitan cities in Europe.
The works of Catalan architects, including Gaudí, Doménech i Montaner, Cadafalch, provide this aura of Modernity which revamped the city in the beginning of the 20th century. The peak of this modernista fantasy is the Sagrada Familia, an endless work of art, just like the city itself. Barcelona bubbles in every corner with life and you just have to let yourself go, and surrender to any of it's evocative charms.
Barcelona has much to offer those who enjoy art and architecture. The city is inextricably linked with the works of Gaudi, especially the huge unfinished church of Sagrada Familia, with its Sequoia shaped columns and singular Neo Gothic decoration, which creates an atmosphere both futuristic and medieval. The colourful mosaics of Parc Güell with its wavy forms. The tangled lanes of the Gothic Quarter with the splendid 700 year old Cathedral ruling the maze of narrow streets opening in the vibrant Boqueria Market, a gastronomical must-see which evokes deep passion among all foodies.
