    Barcelona has the energy of a big city, with a touch of art, culture, and a relaxing beach.

    Proud of its rich heritage, this is the city where Spanish and Catalan cultures fuse, presenting us a different traditional cuisine, traditions and language from what Spain got us used to. Barcelona has always been an attractive centre for artists, and nowadays many of the emblematic artists who have passed by are the ones attracting visitors, from the house they lived in to their works, such as Picasso, Joan Miró and Gaudi.

    Besides, Barcelona is famous for having fashionable restaurants, a driven nightlife and a pleasant sunny climate. Beach, art, nightlife, architecture, football and tapas – whatever you’re looking for, you’ll get it with Farol Barcelona city guide.

    Parc Güell

    Located in Carmel Hill, the park is composed by gardens and architectonic elements, which are a reflexion of Gaudi’s artistic naturalist phase. Gaudi’s mosaic works are worth of our attention.
