Plaza Real

Barcelona is considered the most cosmopolitan and European of all Spanish cities. It radiates culture and entertainment, and represents the forefront of art and Modernisme. The city centre is a diverse mixture of Bohemian architecture as in the Le Born district, modernist architecture as in the Eixample district, Gothic style around the Cathedral of Saint Eulalia, and popular culture as seen in the Raval neighbourhood.

Gaudí as the most important representative of Catalan Modernisme is a symbolic figure for the city of Barcelona. His major works such as La Pedrera, the Casa Batlló, the Park Guëll, and the Sagrada Familia count among the city’s top attractions.
