Barcelona is one of the most populated of the European Union, perhaps because it integrates into perspective, history, beauty, art, cuisine, culture and people very special. Barcelona is lively, energetic, when he stepped on the streets you feel you are in the middle of the essence of the Spanish people, a mixture of art and work. Bathed by the Mediterranean sea, more than a million and half people are still forged for that magical and transcendent.
