- The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but seeing with new eyes. Marcel Proust
Barcelona has a great location and is has mild climate throughout the year. The coldest time during the year is usually from December to February, in which the average temperature is between 10 and 12°C. The hottest month is usually August, with temperature around 29°C, so it’s the perfect climate to go to the beach and enjoy the sun.
Barcelona is located on the coast and there are miles of beaches all along the north. The main beach of Barcelona is divided into five or more smaller beaches and each beach offers a great relax.
Barcelona is as the capital of Modernism and you can find many monuments built and designed by famous Antoni Gaudi. The most impressive Gaudi’s works that I recommend are: the Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Casa Batllo and Park Guell. In addition, in Barcelona you also find spectacular gothic Cathedral or the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar.
Culture And Festivals
Barcelona has become a very cosmopolitan city, so you can constantly find artistic and cultural exhibitions throughout the city. There are many art galleries and museums in Barcelona like MACBA (Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona), the Picasso Museum, the Miró Foundation and the MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya). In the music scene, Barcelona holds festivals such as Primavera Sound or Sonar.
Barcelona is one of the favorite cities for the organization of conferences and events worldwide. Some of the most famous are the GSM World Mobile Congress and the Grand Prix of Spain F1
