Barcelona is arguably the best-known city in Spain and receives the highest number of international visitors each year. More than 100 million people each year, in fact. If you want to join that number of multicultural tourists, you can find out how to travel here
on your selected dates and with your preferred method of transport. A lot of backpackers choose to use the train but, if you would rather be in more luxurious surroundings, you could fly.
The city is harboring a few secrets, which some tourists may not be aware of. For instance, did you know that all the beaches along the coast were man made? Prior to the Olympics in 1992 the seaside was taken up with industries. They were moved for the event and replaced with artificial beaches. The architecture in the Catalan capital is regarded as some of the best in the world. Indeed, it is the only city to receive the Royal Gold Medal for architecture. Barcelona was awarded the accolade in 1999, and the city is still a major attraction for those interested in unique building design.
