Spanish Language Immersion in Barcelona
Antonio Gaudi's Barcelona
Spanish architect Antoni Gaudí y Cornet (1852-1926), was born in Réus, Tarragona (Catalonia), son of a coppersmith. He lived during the wonderful time of the Spanish Art Nouveau movement, referred to as the Modernisme – an artistic and architectural movement comparable to the Jugendstil movement in Germany or the Art Nouveau movement in France.
Gaudí mainly built his creations in Barcelona and this city is witness to his creativity. This is where he let his imagination run wild. His unmistakable style and use of forms is evident throughout the city, giving Barcelona a slightly bizarre atmosphere. Some of his most famous masterpieces include Parc Güell, the immense cathedral Sagrada Familia, Bellesguard (the symbol of Catalonia) as well as la Casa Batlló.
The Gothic quarter is one of the oldest and most interesting parts of Barcelona. There are countless ancient buildings to be found, which date back all the way to Roman times. Every year tourists flock to Barrio Gótico and it is still one of the most popular residential areas. The small narrow winding streets as well as the many tapas bars and cafes add a unique charm to this area of the city, which guarantee a wonderful experience.
The roman gate on Plaça Nova is especially worth mentioning. Here you will also come across the Palacio de la Generalitat as well as the Palacio del Ayuntamiento (Town Hall). Other interesting sites to see include Plaça del Rei, Plaça Reial, the Gothic Cathedral as well as the medieval palaces Casa dels Canonges, Pia Almoina and Ardiaca.
Las Ramblas is a 2 km long boulevard – which lies between the Plaça de Catalunya and the port – is probably the most famous walkway in Barcelona. People of all ages, cultural backgrounds, nationalities and social classes, flock to this boulevard. There is also an endless string of cafes, street theatres, stores, galleries, vegetable and fruit stands, flower stands, living statues, jugglers, acrobats and buskers to wonder at.
Other sights to include on your itinerary when strolling along Las Ramblas are the Mercado de la Boquería (the markets), the Palacio de la Virreina (which is currently the seat of the culture department of the regional government) and la Casa Bruno Cuadros.
The Port is found at the end of the Las Ramblas boulevard, with the tower of Colon as its most dominant feature. From the top you get the chance to take in the breathtakingly beautiful view of the city. The Paseo de Colon Boulevard is ideal for an enjoyable stroll, so come along and relax while taking your Spanish Language Course in Barcelona.
Barcelona Football Stadium Tour is the most popular in Barcelona, If you intend going to the Barcelona FC football stadium tour we recommend you book this tour in advance of arriving in Barcelona. If you're a football fan this is the tour for you - visit the Barcelona FC museum which is packed with trophies and cups and photos of players from Barcelona FC's history, see what it's like behind the scenes at the club with a visit to the VIP room, and players changing quarters as well a chance to sit in the VIP box in the Football stadium itself. This is a fascinating tour for all football fans interested in Barcelona football.
