Barcelona is situated on the North Eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean. Barcelona is unmistakably a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also because of its history, tradition and cultural influences. It is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination with a rich cultural heritage. Particularly renowned are the architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluís Domènech i Montaner that have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, as well as the art of Miró and Picasso. Barcelona is a city where you can stroll through a wide variety of public parks and gardens. If time allows, visit the Parc de Collserola, a protected natural site covering a surface area of some 8,000 hectares, and the Parc de Montjuïc. Fabulous architecture, brilliant Spanish cuisine, flamboyant culture and wonderful weather combine to make Barcelona a truly magnificent city.
