Notable places

Barcelona, The Spanish Village (Poble Espanyol)

One of the most popular shopping areas of Barcelona, the Spanish Village, Poble Espanyol in the local language, is an array of houses, shops and other buildings done in every style seen across Spain. Enter through the gateway simulated to look like the great walled city of Avila and experience the many sights within.

Montjuic

At the base of Montjuic in Barcelona, while standing in the Placa d'Espanya, visitors see before them two majestic towers. Constructed in 1929 as part of the Palau Nacional for the World Exhibition, they form the entrance to this Spanish city's magnificent hilltop park.

Barcelona, City of Catalonia

Barcelona is an ancient city, born of the Roman Empire. But like many great cities around the world, it flowered in the late Middle Ages and blossomed in the mid-19th century. Yet there are many exciting elements of the modern period there, as well. These periods are all evident in this northeastern Spanish city on the Mediterranean Sea coast.
