An elegant city with a rational urban plan that surrendered itself to the inspiration of artists, designers and bon vivants who knew just how to transform their creative impulses into declarations of beauty.
Few cities are as beautiful as Barcelona; even fewer offer such cultural and artistic delights next to a Mediterranean shoreline boasting 4.5km of pristine beaches.
The 4,000-year-old city is a melting pot of cultures and style. This juxtaposition of old and new encapsulates what Barcelona is all about. The city is proud of its rich heritage, but it is fervently progressive too – a place where design is reinterpreted by different artists and architects. A city that attracts adventurous minds, entrepreneurs and those who embrace avant-garde.
