BUZZ IS IN THE AIR - What to see, where to go

Barcelona is hip, vibrant, welcoming. The capital of Catalonia and one of the most important ports in the Mediterranean, it's an eclectic mixture of Gothic, 'modernist' and contemporary architectural treasures.

Its most famous landmark is the Sagrada Familia cathedral, the fairy-tale like building in the northern part of the city centre. Its creator, Antoni Gaudi, commenced work on it in 1882 and concentrated all his energies on it until his untimely death in 1926, when he was run-over by a tram. The SAGRADA FAMILIA is still under construction and may take another 50 years to complete. You can visit its interior and take a lift to the top of the building. See La Sagrada Famlia Visita Virtual

Gaudi was born in Reus, in the province of Tarragona in 1852 and was the undoubted leader of the 'modernist' movement that began in the second half of the 19th century. If you want to see some of the most original buildings, which took the art nouveau concept to new heights, head for the L'EIXAMPLE area, to the north-west of the RAMBLAS in the BARRI GOTHIC area, a stone's throw from the port.
