Welcome to Barcelona!

Are you still wondering whether you’d rather live by the mountains or by the sea? Good news, Barcelona, has a bit of everything.

You prefer to rent an apartment by the sea? La Barceloneta is your neighbourhood; on the other hand, you’d like a more homey and alternative vibe? Gracia is definitely your place to be. Its historic background, some of the world’s most famous architecture, the city beaches, the tasty Mediterranean food and a very cosmopolitan feel, make Barcelona one of the trendiest city in Europe.

The cultural landscape of medieval Europe perfectly blends into the fashionable charm of the modern era. Barna, as called by the locals, offers more than 20 museums around the city, including Gaudí’s unique architecture which turns Barcelona into a huge tourist magnet and a great city to live in.
