article - sensational second city of spain

What better way to pass your holidays than with a tremendous trip to bustling barcelona ...

Second city of Spain and major Mediterranean port, this delightful place incorporates an historic mix of Roman remains, medieval quarters and 20th century avant-garde art.

It also possesses beautiful beaches nearby.

Nature lovers need not travel far to be able to hike through hills that are part of the Coastal Mountain Range and Catalonian Pyrenees.

Not only is the cosmopolitan city a tremendous artistic source, it also offers penty for children to do and see.

How they'll love the beaches that surround the city ... the Aquarium ... Zoo ... Maritime Museum ... Olympic Stadium and nearby theme park!

For shopoholics, its wonderful Shopping Line will greatly appeal.

The velvet night vibrates with night clubs, discos, shows, restaurants, bars, caf s ... not to mention theaters, cinemas, opera and classical music concerts.

Needless to say, Spain's second city is a culture-vulture s dream come true, with most places of historic interest situated in the Old Town.

The Old Town spreads north-west from the harbor and - at its heart - is the Gothic Quarter or Barrio G tico.

El Arco de Triunfo can be found there, plus the impressive Cathedral of Ciudad Condal.

Adjacent to the Gothic Quarter is the Barrio de la Ribera - also of medieval origin - where several historic buildings have been turned into museums, such as the Palau Aguilar which is, nowadays, the Picasso Museum.

The renowned Las Ramblas is a series of lively streets that combine to make a broad avenue leading to the harbor and Mediterranean Sea.

What a superb atmosphere they possess.

To the south-west lies the fortress-topped hill of Montjuic, where the Olympic Stadium and fine museums are located.

At the southern end of the Ramblas lies Barcelona Harbor and Port Vell.

This area now combines high-class restaurants with trendy clubs and bars.

Discover in the central area of barcelona - the Eixample - the fascinating fantasy works of Gaud such as Park G ell ... Palau G ell ... Casa Mil , La Pedrera.

However, Gaud is best remembered for the part he played in the construction of the Basilica of Barcelona - La Sagrada Familia.

So ... boomerang on over to barcelona - you won't regret it!
