In Barcelona, ​​whatever district you walk through, be sure that there is something to see. From the jewels of Modernism to contemporary architecture, passing through the markets, the treasures of the old, Romanesque and medieval towns or the parks, everything encourages discovery.

Visit the capital of southern Catalonia

Barcelona's history dates back to Neolithic times, so you'll find architectural treasures from all eras here.
Thus, you will find traces of Roman times, Muslim domination or the period when it was the habitual residence of the Crown of Aragon.

The Gothic Quarter, meanwhile, is the precious testimony of a particularly fruitful medieval period.
The works of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, such as Casa Milà (also called Pedrera), Casa Batlló or the temple of the Sagrada Familia recall, for their part, the major urban transformation of the city in the XNUMXth century.
