Barcelona

  1. 1. BARCELONA Capital of Catalunya, by Ivonne Corichi.
  2. 2. Why Barcelona? <ul><li>Six years ago, I had to go to Europe on business. Then, I decided to use my vacations and spend one week in a European City. I had a lot of thinking and research to do. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why Barcelona? <ul><li>The top choices on my list were Rome, London, Paris, Madrid and Barcelona. I decided a city that had all of the entertaining, culture, language and food that I desired. And specially, a city I could fall in love to. </li></ul>
  4. 4. At the airport. <ul><li>If you arrived from a country not member of the EC, you must go through immigration and show your passport. Don´t get nervous if the officer has been checking your ID for minutes, they usually take their time. </li></ul>
  5. 5. At the airport. <ul><li>If you don´t have any products to declare at the customs agents, then head out to the exit and hire a Taxi. The first stop is the hotel, where a warm bath and a smooth bed are waiting for you. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Architecture. <ul><li>Barcelona´s architecture is eclectic, from Gothic to Art Nuveau and Modern. One of the city´s architectural icon is Antonio Gaudi. He has four masterpieces in downtown. La pedrera, La Sagrada Familia, Parc Guel and Casa Batllo. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Food. <ul><li>Traditional food is a must in Barcelona. Fideuá is a noodle served with alioli, a sauce made from garlic and oil. Is either simple or delicious. I suggest you stopover “Los Caracoles” a great old school restaurant near “Las Ramblas” </li></ul>
  8. 8. Entertainment. <ul><li>In daytime, besides sightseeing. You can go to the Monumental Plaza de Toros and watch a bull fight. Some people find it either violent nor artistic. A walk through Las Ramblas is also very entertaining. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Nightlife. <ul><li>A great place to land late evening is Buddha Bar, music is great and you can chill out drinking a martini. Late night I suggest you go dancing to Pont Aeri, the place with great DJ´s and nice people. Both places need reservation. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Vacations Over. <ul><li>I had the greatest time in Barcelona, a curious thing, I almost missed the plane back home. I arrived 5 minutes before take off. I have to questions after my journey… Will I comeback? Definitively. You ask yourself what you will do on your next vacation? To have fun. </li></ul>
