Barcelona is the capital and largest city of
Catalonia, an autonomous community in Spain, and the
country's second most populous municipality.
Barcelona is a wonderful city to explore by foot.
You can easily stroll from La Rambla to the beach
and then back to the Gothic Quarter in one
afternoon. The city is pretty flat, so biking is an
excellent option. If you love transportation, we

amusement park that overlooks the whole city. You'll
take the metro, a tram, and a funicular -- and a
ferris wheel ride, if that counts!

website in the October 2019.
