‘Barcelona is a very old city in which you can feel the weight of history; it is haunted by history. You cannot walk around it without perceiving it.’ – Carlos Ruiz Zafon.
Barcelona, also called the Comtal city, was founded as a roman city in the middle ages. After having been part of the Crown of Aragon, it affirmed itself as the capital of Modernism thanks to many great artists, among them Antoni Gaudi. Going around the city you are transported in different times. Every corner has as story or legend to tell. The roman wall, the cathedral, the Castle of Montjuic, la Sagrada Familia and Casa Batllo are just some landmarks that bring us back in various epochs.
1992 Summer Olympics played a very important role in the transformation of Barcelona into one of the most important centres of Europe, improving the infrastructure, the creation of Olympic city (still visible nowadays) and revitalizing the area of Montjuic.
