Spain Things to Do: 1,013 reviews and 1,618 photos


Barcelona, a coastal city on the Eastern side of Spain, came into prominence as one of the great Olympic cities of the last decade. Spain, its people and athletes, rose to the occasion and acquitted themselves well.
All Barcelona should be proud of their successful effort, blending new sports arenas with the beautiful ancient architecture.
This is a truly beautiful city that is alive and colourful, thouroughly modern while still retaining the flavour of past times.
Barcelona is also very conscientious about the tourist, the tour bus system is terrific and should be a model for all cities.
