Barcelona is considered the most European city in Spain. It has been the capital of a nation of Mediterranean merchants and its personality has been gradually enriched with the settlement of diverse civilizations that have bequeathed a rich heritage and open mentality to the Barcelonians. Our interactive conversation has been designed to provide an overview of the city’s top highlights but also popular neighborhoods for local residents. The city offers travelers so much to explore: history, gastronomy, architecture, beaches, plus local treasures we can only find with the help of an expert.
