Spanish courses in Barcelona
Barcelona is located in the Northeast of Spain and is the capital of Cataluña. With a population of 1.5 million ( 3 million including the Greater Barcelona area) it is one of Spain’s most important and beautiful cities.
Four kilometres of beaches to the east and a National Park to the west make its location ideal, and Barcelona really has something to offer for everyone...
The 1992 summer Olympic Games left their mark on the city’s landscape and it has become one of the world’s true cultural capitals.
The urban landscape combines some of the clearest examples of modern-day architecture with the historical monuments to be found in the city’s oldest quarters. Internationally renowned for modernist buildings constructed for the ‘Universal Exhibition’ celebrated at the beginning of the last century, and whose architects include Puig i Cadafalch, Doménech i Montaner, and the brilliant Antoni Gaudí, parks and buildings reflect avant garde tendencies rather than more traditional designs.
Wide boulevards are truly emblematic in Barcelona and are full of life at all hours of the day and night. Taking a stroll down ‘Las Ramblas’, the famous avenue leading down to the sea, you will find a curious mixture of stately buildings, shops and cafes, and mime artists and street entertainers who invite you to dwell just a little longer than you may have planned. You will also come across fascinating local markets such as the vibrant ‘Boqueria’, to feast your eyes on; yet another of the cities delights.
Such a colourful mixture and a constant movement of people from all across the globe makes Barcelona one of the most beautiful and cosmopolitan cities on the Mediterranean and in fact, in the whole world.
