Why Is Barcelona A Preferred Destination?

Barcelona in Europe is one of the most well-liked and famous short stay destinations perchance the most admired ahead of Paris, Rome, and Amsterdam.

One of the cause for the city’s high popularity is pretty evident- the momentous city centre and the medieval buildings which includes the modernist architecture and gothic cathedrals of Josep Puig I Cadafalch, Lluis Domenech I Montaner and especially Antoni Gaudi whose unfinished Sagrada Familia which is still not completed and its network of narrow streets is one of the most famous icons of Barcelona.

One more reason is possibly simple that Barcelona is quite cheaper than various other European cities, the price of restaurants, bars, and hotels are quite affordable and you do not have to break your bank account to spend a lavish weekend in Barcelona.

But Barcelona is very much more than the cheap food and beautiful buildings, it is also the main city in Catalonia, the sovereign districts of Spain that are scattered from the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees in north, down past Costa Duarda and Tarragona in south. Furthermore Barcelona has cultural and language individuality entirely different from what large numbers of people think and believe to be usually Spanish.
