Barcelona is Spain’s second largest city, with a population of nearly two million people, and the capital and largest city of Catalonia. The city, located directly on the northeastern Mediterranean coast of Spain, has a rich history dating back at least 2,000 years when it gained prominence as a Roman town.
In 1992, Barcelona gained international recognition by hosting the Olympic games which brought a massive uptick to the tourism industry in the city.
This beautiful city is full of what European cities are known for – outdoor markets, restaurants, shops, museums and churches. It is fantastic for walking with an extensive and reliable Metro system for more far-flung destinations. The core center of town, focused around the Ciutat Vella provides days of enjoyment for those looking to experience the life of Barcelona while the beaches the city was built upon provide sun and relaxation during the long periods of agreeably warm weather.
The map covers an extensive area including the airport (Barcelona International Airport), the rail system and metro stations, beaches, the cable car stations, tourist attractions, the old town and shopping district. Enjoy walking along La Rambla, around Ciutat Vella, Parc Güell, Sagrada Familia, Casa Milá, Casa Batllo, Montjuic, Barcelonetta and many more places…
