Barcelona is Catalonia, a region with its own language, and the Catalans feel as the most important and powerful province in Spain. The city and the surrounding area, such as the beaches or the Montserrat Mountains, provide an opportunity for multi-week stays. If you only have a few days time, you have to concentrate on the various offers of the city itself. The cornerstone of the architecture and the city art became dominant since the late 19th century and has continued to the present modernity. Picasso, Gaudi, Susana Solano and many others have put their stamp on Barcelona.
