Barcelona offers an amazing variety of sightseeing attractions, museums, cathedrals, and even beaches and hill walking.
Euromonitor International found that Barcelona was the 5th most visited city in Europe in 2010 with 5 million visitors.


Las Ramblas is Barcelona's ultimate pedestrian paradise - a broad tree-lined boulevard where traffic is confined to a narrow lane on each side. It is the place to see, and be seen, in Barcelona.
