Travel to Barcelona
Barcelona has one of Europe's largest ports and is home to a great variety of architectural and monumental richness, as it was the birthplace of Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, a key figure of Modernism and whose works can be visited throughout the city.
La Barceloneta, Port Vell and Atarazanas will show you a part of city full of tradition. Las Ramblas start at Barcelona's port all the way to Plaça Catalunya, with the Gothic quarter to one side and the Raval to the other. The Passeig de Gràcia and the Diagonal avenue will show you the commercial area of Barcelona, where you can find all sorts of shops, boutiques and cafés. The quietest area is located at the Pedralbes, Sant Gervasi and Sarriá quarters, all of them comprising residential areas of great beauty.
Besides the tourist package of beach and nice weather, Barcelona is also a top-tier cultural destination: its theatre programme, cinemas and museums hardly find a match in the rest of the Iberian peninsula.
The Sagrada Família or the Parc Güell are two of the most visited landmarks and Antoni Gaudí's masterpieces, who also designed the Pedrera and Batlló houses, located at the very Passeig de Gràcia. This grove, as it name in Catalan says, ends at the Gràcia quarter, one of the most genuine in the city, best known for its block parties.
Barcelona is at easy reach by road for everyone thanks to ALSA. The access spot to ALSA in Barcelona is the train station Barcelona Nord, El Prat Airport and Passeig de Gràcia, among others.
