Barcelona// A charming city

*A Port

Barcelona is the capital and the most populous city of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. Barcelona is today one of the world's leading tourist, economic and cultural centers. Barcelona was the 12th-most-visited city in the world and 4th most visited in Europe after Paris, London, and Rome. It is in addition the most popular tourist destination in Spain (receiving over 5 million tourists every year).

I have been to Barcelona twice, I love this city, and each time has a different surprise. This city will always show the best side to the world. Barcelona has its own very unique charm, which is why a lot of tourists will choose to go to Barcelona.

Following I recommend some places worth to visiting:

*Sagrada Família

Sagrada Família (Charges) is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926). Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although need to buy ticket to enter the church, but inside the special design and luxury, no one does not praise ‘Gaudi was a genius’.

*Dali Museum
Barcelona has a great number of museums, which cover different areas and eras. The Fundació Joan Miró, Picasso Museum and Fundació Antoni Tàpies hold important collections of these world-renowned artists. I did not go to the Picasso Museum, but I went to the Dali Museum, he also is a great artist.

*The entrance to Gaudí's "Parc Güell"

Barcelona contains 68 municipal parks, divided into 12 historic parks, 5 thematic (botanical) parks, 45 urban parks and 6 forest parks. Parc Güell is another masterpiece from Gaudi,  Parc GüellIs is a garden complex with architectural elements situated on the hill of el Carmel in the Gràcia district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. It was designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí and built in the years 1900 to 1914. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Works of Antoni Gaudí". This park is free of charge to the public.

*Barcelona Beach
Barcelona is listed first among the Top 10 Beach Cities in the world by National Geographic. Barceloneta beach gained status as the best urban beach in the World and total third best beach in the World, according the documentary film "Worlds Best Beaches" produced by Discovery Channel in 2005. Standing on the beach is really nice, you can forget everything, lying on the beach to enjoy the sea breeze to enjoy the sunshine, if you are a people who love the sea, you must remember that planning Barcelona beach as your one-stop on your trip.

*In La Rambla, famous for its living statues
In this street every day gathered a lot of tourists, there are many restaurants, shops, small bars, street performers, the other end of this street is a port, the scenery is very beautiful.

*Carmen Show
Talking about Spain, must know the Flamenco, if you have interesting want to watch Flamenco shows you can choose a  restaurant has performed Flamenco shows. Like the restaurant of photos, has professional performance, but also provide a very delicious dinner. But I'm sorry I forgot the specific address and I'll try to find out the address and will update later. 


Barcelona is a place rich in seafood, if you love seafood, you really should come here, you can eat very fresh seafood and a variety of seafood dishes.

But I still have one regret, did not go to watch a football match. Barcelona has a long sporting tradition and hosted the highly successful 1992 Summer Olympics as well as several matches during the 1982 FIFA World Cup. Looking forward to next trip to Spain. I hope you can embark on a journey and go where you want to.
