A global hub
Barcelona certainly is one of Europe’s most demanded cities when it comes to tourism, business and history. The city also offers hard-to-match opportunities in several areas that range from culture and music to entertainment, nightlife, fashion and international fairs.
Airport and road infrastructure is fantastic, comparable to the best in the world. Transfers and transportation follow high-quality standards, as expected in such a visited city. There are too many things happening in Barcelona to be late, and efficient transportation has been a number one priority for local authorities since the early 90’s Olympic games.
In little words, Barcelona can be seen as a versatile, multicultural, attractive city: a place that every traveller – whether looking for business or pleasure – should visit.
Ah, Barcelona. The Ciudad Condal remains one of Iberian peninsula’s most cherished cities; it is a global and cosmopolitan metropoli like no other. The city is Catalonia’s pride and showcase. Also, it is among the most populous cities in the Mediterranean, holding more than 1.6 million inhabitants – totalling 4.7 million when the surrounding, metropolitan areas are taken into account.
Barcelona is one of Europe’s economic cores. The economy has a number of strong points, including a highly developed manufacturing sector, a long-standing textile industry and a mature services sector. Plus, it’s one of the world’s tourist meccas, averaging more than 7 million tourists a year.
Welcome to the city
The city’s charm and popularity is reflected in the high number of passengers that pass through its main airport: Barcelona-El Prat airport is the second busiest in Spain after Madrid-Barajas. In 2014, the airport handled a record number of 37.5 million passengers. While it is – by large – the region’s largest airport, it’s not the only one. The city offers alternatives like Reus and Girona airports, which are farther away from the city’s centre but still manage to receive +3 million passengers every year.
Highway C-32B connects the airport to Barcelona’s main beltways. The highway network is modern and well maintained, making airport transfers comfortable and normally, fast. Traffic jams can appear during rush hours in the high season, but generally speaking, traffic is good enough to be relied on. Given the amount of passengers and visitors, Barcelona-El Prat airport also offers bus and train services, plus rental car services, taxis and private transfer companies.
An endless adventure
Reasons to visit Barcelona are virtually infinite. The city offers a vast array of high points: historical heritage, catalonian culture, natural beauty, architecture and a never-ending sensation of multiculturalism make of the city a beehive of experiences, sights and events that hardly fail to disappoint.
The city’s history, like most Mediterranean cities’ history, is marked by roman and carthaginian influence; remains of both civilisations can be observed in places like the Museu d’Historia de la Ciutat de Barcelona (the city’s main historical museum). Historical heritage sites largely exceed the ones that survived from roman times, and can be fully appreciated in the urban developments that started in the XVII century and onwards. Several buildings and structures have been listed as World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Among these are the Parc Güell, Casa Milá, the Palau de la Música Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music), Sant Pau Hospital and, of course, the Sagrada Familia. In architectural terms, Barcelona remains one of the finest exponents of european modernism.
Barcelona’s attractions don’t end in its historical heritage. Au contraire, the city offers beaches (which can get crowded in the high season), walks and sights (neighbourhoods of Raval, Gothic and Barceloneta are superb), parks and other attractions, such as the Aquarium, the Montjuic, the Olympic Port and La Boquería market (a must).
The city also hosts one of the most emblematic sport clubs in the world: the Barcelona FC. In the recent years, the team has triggered a sort of football revolution, translated into a flexible, eye-pleasing and lethal style that gained numerous titles and international recognition for the club. The marvelous, prolific Lionel Messi has been the face and soul of the team in the past decade.
