Barcelona, more than just a single city, is really a collection of multi-faceted and diverse cities. The visitor unfamiliar with its history might be surprised that such a modern and enterprising city preserves its historic Gothic center almost intact, or by the curious contrast between the maze of narrow streets and the grid-like layout of the Eixample, the urban planning "Enlargement" project of the end of the 19th century. With such a huge variety of thing to see and do, it's no wonder why Barcelona city breaks are so popular. Fabulous architecture, brilliant Spanish cuisine, flamboyant culture and wonderful weather combine to make Barcelona a truly magnificent city Barcelona

During recent decades there has been much reconstruction and many of the older parts of the city have inevitably changed their face. The old centre can be assumed to have been the square Puerto del Sol area which is hard to judge today with its modern buildings. The financial centre is in the western end of the Calle de Alcala More than 100 banks have their offices in these very costly and pretentious buildings. The Calle Gran Vi a is a fine mixture of hotels, shops,restaurants,bars,heatres,andnightclubs.
