Artistic traditions of Spain
Barcelona, a travel into time machine, passing by 14th century's cathedrals, ancient walls and stone corridors of Romans and Franks under which control it has been before gaining its independence. . Barcelona is the second largest city in the country, located directly on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, with a rich history and a beautiful dining and drinking scene. Deep blue waters, sun kissed beaches and behind all that, an amazing panorama of Holsellora hills. Barcelona has some architectural treasures that can not be copied or sold, they are so unique, perfectly fitting in this edginess and chaotic beauty.
Get closer to the city center and you will discover a very alive scene, filled with endless botanic and sculpture gardens, old castles and churches. Barcelona keeps its old charm, being very modern at the same time, with musical fountains and brand new restaurants, entertaining the visitors. Gaudi has left a bunch of ingenious and whimsical creations, for which the capital is so well known to the rest of the world, of course going hand by hand with the pieces exposed by Salvador Dali, Pablo Picasso and many others.

Once the dark comes, the city is transformed into life music room, sounds of flamenco mixes with brassy jazz and heavy club music.
