Barcelona is the capital and largest city of Catalonia . It is the second largest city in Spain , with a population close to two million inhabitants. Barcelona, ​​known as the city ​​of Barcelona is located in the northeast of the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula and is undoubtedly one of the most popular European cities. The city offers the perfect mix of sun, beaches, culture, history, gastronomy and day and night life. Barcelona mixes history and avant-garde.

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia . In it you can hear Catalan and Castilian in equal parts, and the coexistence of both languages ​​is fluid and natural. The numerous foreign colony has come to add more multiculturalism and languages ​​to the city, until it becomes a true tower of Babel.

Not being the capital of the State, the city has had to fight historically for its economic and cultural position. This has historically turned it into an ambitious city, proud of itself and of a dizzying dynamism for its relatively small size. The 1992 Olympic Games was the height of his ambition. The City Council, however, works daily to make it a world capital of high technologies and communication.

Culturally, the offer of the city is practically unbeatable. Barcelona can boast of hosting some of the most prestigious music festivals in Europe, such as Sònar or Primavera Sound , and of having a range of theater, musicals and dance more than ample.

La Ciutat Comtal (as it is called in Catalan) is cosmopolitan in its large avenues of the Diagonal and Passeig de Gracia, popular in its neighborhoods and even in the opinions of its inhabitants. It shows that character of industrial city, quiet in the great parks of Montjuïc or the Laberint d'Horta and busy in Las Ramblas or Calle Aragó . It has so many layers and dimensions that it takes weeks, months, even years to get to know it in its entirety.

Although limited in its extension, Barcelona does not stop reinventing itself. Next to the Gothic neighborhood, the Eixample , the Raval, Gracia and the Olympic Village, well known, new areas of cultural, architectural and leisure interest appear: the neighborhood of Santa Caterina, one of the best kept secrets of the city, the new avenue Diagonal, which from the Plaza de Glòries leads to the new and brand-new district of Diagonal Mar; Poble Nou and its vibrant Rambla, the neighborhood of Sants in the process of renovation, the delightful villas of Pedralbes and the old town of Sarriá, the inspiring parks of Les Heures and the Laberint d'Horta , the charming old town of the district ofSant Andreu , etc.

If the traveler has little time, it will possibly make the most common tourist circuit, and although it is mandatory, you will lose much of the essence of this eminently commercial and port city. It is therefore convenient that as soon as possible, the tourist deviates from the main routes. Sometimes it is enough just to turn left or right of a main street like Las Ramblas. You will almost certainly be surprised when a beautiful square or street awaits you where the locals abound, the charming traditional shop and a bar terrace where you can rest.

It's worth submerging yourself in the most deeply-rooted Barcelona habits, such as enjoying pa amb tomàquet (bread with tomato) or horchata, strolling through the bourgeois Rambla de Catalunya and escaping to the nearby beaches of Gavà, Castelldefells and Ocata, enjoying the crazy night in the clubs and discos of the city, and drop by the beaches and bars of Barceloneta and beyond on Sunday afternoon. Maybe you prefer to attend a popular party in which there are castellers and dracs de foc , or immerse yourself in the almost daily conferences held at the CCCB or the MACBA.

What is certain is that there will always something to do. And in that lies the greatest charm of this bimillenian city, the fusion of its incensing Mediterranean bustle and the serenity of its noble bourgeois and noble.

 

Location
Barcelona is located in Catalonia , Spain . The Mediterranean Sea caresses the coast of the city of Barcelona, ​​while the Collserola mountain range protects the city on the west side with a very diverse landscape of forests, with crops, dry meadows, pine forests, holm oaks and riparian vegetation.

The Catalan capital, located 166 kilometers from the border with France and 120 kilometers south of the Pyrenees, is bounded by two rivers: the Llobregat to the south and north kisses.

The plain of Barcelona closest to the littoral mountain range is dotted with small hills (Monterols, Putxet, Carmel, Rovira and La Peira), and formerly there were many streams and small marshlands. The mountain of Montjuïc rises near the coast, with a height of 191.7 meters.

Barcelona, ​​which has an area of ​​100.4 square kilometers, is part of the El Barcelonès region , along with Santa Coloma de Gramanet , Badalona and Sant Adrià del Besos , in the north, and L'Hospitalet de Llobregat , on the border South of the city.

Climate
Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate. In winter, temperatures are relatively mild during the day and cool at night, although humidity can increase the feeling of cold. Spring and autumn are the best seasons to visit the city, especially the first one. The temperatures are nice. In summer the heat, together with the humidity, can be suffocating. Provoked by its location facing the sea and surrounded by small mountains that surround its back. There are often situations of embarrassment ( xafogor in Catalan). The night can be equally oppressive with temperatures above 24º.

With regard to the rains, they are distributed unevenly throughout the year, having their maximum in autumn and spring. In the months of September and October heavy storms are common.

Context
The history of Barcelona extends over 4,000 years, from the end of the Neolithic, with the first remains found in the territory of the city, to the present. The substratum of its inhabitants unites the Iberian (Laietans), Carthaginians, Romans, Jews, Visigoths, Muslims and Christians. Despite the vestiges of Iberian and Carthaginian settlements, the true birth of the city took place in Roman times, from whose first moment of splendor it will evolve into one of the main ports of the western Mediterranean, reaching primacy in the Middle Ages the rest of Catalan counties and becoming one of the most important cities of the Crown of Aragon. After the union of Castile and Aragon Barcelona has always enjoyed a position of great relevance in political development, social and economic status of the Spanish state. At present, events such as the 1992 Olympic Games and the Universal Forum of Cultures have placed Barcelona as a world-renowned and praised city, an important tourist and cultural center, as well as a prestigious financial and congress center.

Origins
The origins of the city of Barcelona are confusing. Before the Roman conquest of the Iberian Peninsula, the area of ​​the plain of Barcelona and adjoining areas preserves remains of the late Neolithic and Early Chalcolithic settlements. Subsequently, the culture of the Layetanos, an Iberian people, was developed. There is evidence of two neighboring towns, Barkeno, located on Mount Táber (Ciutat Vella) and Laie (or Laiesken), whose location is believed in the foothills of the mountain of Montjuïc (3rd and 2nd centuries BC), with Certain commercial activity. Apparently there was also a small Greek establishment, named Καλλίπολις (Kallípolis, "beautiful city") although its location is not clear. Two mints of that period have been found. Between the III and II centuries a. C. circulated drachmas of imitation emporitana, with the Iberian legend Barkeno. Laiesken also minted coins that prevailed during the early Roman period. Barcino was founded by Amílcar Barca, father of Aníbal who also founded other cities such as Alicante3 During the Second Punic War (218-202 BC), Carthage, led by Hannibal Barca, occupied the population in the course of its march towards the Pyrenees, having crossed the Ebro, which was until then the limit of the Carthaginian domain. In many cases, this occupation (218 BC) is designated as the founding date of the city. having crossed the Ebro, which was until then the limit of the Carthaginian domain.

Free taxi: green light; Taxi occupied or not available: without light or with a white number; Request taxi: check if it is free and if it is raised in the air to see the taxi driver

As in many other cities, it is recommended to ask the taxi driver in advance about the total cost of the race, as frauds are often occurring in the amount of the same. Also note if at the start of the race the taximeter starts or if it is off (if not at the beginning of the trip). If you have any questions, write down the license number of the taxi driver and the registration number of the car, as well as always ask for a receipt of the race. Generally within all taxis usually carry a sticker with the current rates during the current year, easily visible.

To prevent these possible frauds, it is advisable to take a more or less reliable idea about what a taxi can cost, World Taximeter gives you an estimated price of what the taxi can cost you, if there is a lot of difference with that price you start to suspect, because It's pretty tight.
