Barcelona spain trip

  1. 1. Barcelona Trip<br />In a privileged position on the northeastern coast of the Iberian peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain in both size and population. It is also the capital of Catalonia, 1 of the 17 Autonomous Communities that make up Spain. There are two official languages spoken in Barcelona: Catalan, generally spoken in all of Catalonia, and Castillian Spanish. The city of Barcelona has a population of 1.510.000, but this number spirals to more than 4.000.000 if the outlying areas are also included. The capital of Catalonia is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also and above all because of its history, tradition and cultural influences. The documented history of the city dates back to the founding of a Roman colony on its soil in the second century B.C. Modern Barcelona experienced spectacular growth and economic revival at the onset of industrialization during the second half of the 19th century. The 1888 World's Fair became a symbol of the capacity for hard work and the international outlook projected by the city. Culture and the arts flourished in Barcelona and in all of Catalonia; the splendor achieved by Catalonian modernism is one of the most patent displays.<br />Languages spoken<br />Catalan and Spanish<br />weather forecast from 5th October,2010 to 12th october,2010<br /> Flight Reservation to Barcelona Rs. 36,012<br />http://cheapfaresindia.makemytrip.com/international/international/direct?execution=e1937077s1<br />http://www.booking.com/hotel/es/barcelona/nuevotriunfo.en.html?aid=317676;label=home_form;sid=0f064e2b7b8c957afdbae5b9dc9ef964;checkin=2010-10-05;checkout=2010-10-12<br />Hotel Neuvo Triunfo<br />Price for 7 nights Euro 428 including VAT and Service charges<br />Car On Rent GBP 97.02 for seven days<br />Fuel Rate GBP0.15 per KM<br />Barcelona Museums<br />Fundació Miró Category: Museums/Galleries Location: MontjuïcAddress: Parc de Montjuïc, s/n, 08038 Barcelona, Spain. Phone: 934 439 470<br />The Miró Foundation was a gift from the artist Joan Miró to his native city and is one of Barcelona's most exciting showcases of contemporary art. The airy, white building was designed by Josep Lluís Sert and opened in 1975; an extension was added by Sert's pupil Jaume Freixa in 1988. Miró's unmistakably playful and colorful style, filled with Mediterranean light and humor, seems a perfect match for its surroundings. Look for Alexander Calder's mercury fountain. Miró himself rests in the cemetery on Montjuïc's southern slopes. When he died in 1983, the Catalans gave him a send-off amounting to a state funeral. COST: EUR5.
