The capital of Catalonia, Barcelona, ??is 120 kilometers south of the Pyrenees. The second largest city in Spain is home to around 1.6 million people and is beautifully located on the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula. It is bordered by the Besos and Llobregat rivers and the Collserola mountain range. The highest point, Tibidabo, with a height of 512 meters, is visible from afar. Barcelona can be easily reached by train, as the station is an important hub for the Spanish state railways. El Prat Airport is served both by leisure pilots and by plane as the second largest in Spain.
As the largest city in Catalonia, Barcelona is its cultural and economic center. Numerous historical buildings and sights invite guests to visit. As a starting point for a city tour or just a visit to individual buildings, it is recommended to choose Placa de Catalunya. From here you can go on excursions to different epochs of history: the Roman ruins, the beautiful medieval district and the modern city of Eixample are within walking distance. The Gothic quarter with the Spanish name Barri Gotic represents the historic city center. The cathedral of St. Eulalia, the town hall, the Königsplatz and much more can be visited here. Several charming buildings are reminiscent of the most famous representative of the Modernism style, a special form of Art Nouveau, Antoni Gaudi. These are, for example, the Casa Batllo, Vicens, Mila and Calvet, and above all the unfinished Sagrada Familia church, whose construction began in 1882. It is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A wide avenue, La Rambla, leads from the center to the harbor. Street musicians, acrobats, cozy cafés and restaurants with Spanish and Catalan cuisine as well as well-known markets are located here. There may have been Stone Age settlements in the place of today's Mediterranean port. The concrete history of the city began around 2000 years ago with the Iberian settlement of Barkeno. Barcelona is also a popular university city today. The four public universities, Universitat de Barcelona,? Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona,? Universitat Politécnica de Catalunya and Universitat Pompeu Fabra have an excellent reputation. There are also numerous universities of applied sciences and private universities. It was the site of the Olympic Games in 1992, and countless museums are located within its city limits, especially important art museums. Excursions to the surrounding areas of Barcelona are very attractive, to the west are the foothills of the Catalonian mountainous region. The Montjuic hill in the southwest offers a beautiful view also over the city harbor. On it you can visit a 17th and 18th century fortress or stroll in gardens and parks. The port city on the Mediterranean is often referred to as the secret capital of Spain, which is understandable due to its beauty and countless places worth seeing.
The Costa Brava is located in the northeast of the Spanish Mediterranean in Catalonia. This wild coast stretches from the foothills of the Pyrenees with Portbou on the French-Spanish border to the Tordera estuary near Blanes in the southwest. The name Costa Brava is related to rugged rock massifs that drop very steeply towards the sea. The region is characterized by small fishing villages, which are becoming increasingly popular, as well as small beaches and bays, some of which can only be reached by boat. L Estartit belongs to a former fishing village, which has both a steep coast, a sandy beach and a marina. The Medas Islands are particularly interesting for divers, as this nature reserve contains a rich flora and fauna. A very small but beautiful fishing village is Tamariu, which offers rocky and sandy beaches. A popular sight is Sant Sebast a, the lighthouse. Tamariu is recommended due to its steeply falling main bay, which offers relatively calm and warm areas even in stormy seas. Since this bay is home to a wide variety of habitats, it is particularly popular with the marine biologists at the University of Tübingen for excursions.
Those who love sports are in good hands in the Girona Pyrenees. In summer, this mountain range is ideal for hiking with excursion destinations such as Castellfollit de la Roca, which towers over the slope, Besal and Santa Pau. Garrotxa, which is located in a volcanic landscape and the dreamy places Oix and Beget, is also particularly beautiful to look at. In this area there are Romanesque chapels, churches and monasteries to explore. Winter sports are also possible in the colder season. Vallter, Nria and La Molina / Masella form the largest ski area in the Pyrenees with the most modern facilities. By the way, Nuria can only be reached via a cog railway. For visitors interested in history, the archaeological site of Empúries, the medieval towns of Pals and Peratallada and the Iberian settlement of Ullastret, which are among the main attractions of the Costa Brava, are a must. But the Costa Brava also has a special treat for those interested in art: The Dalinian Triangle. The Dalí Museum (Teatre-Museu Dal) in Figueres, can be visited, which contains works such as Galarina, The Specter of Sex Appeal or Leda atoomica. But surrealistic installations such as The Mae West Room or the Rain Taxi and repeated motifs such as its roots in Empordá or the figure Gala can also be viewed. A short stroll through Savadore Dalí's birthplace Figures should be part of the program. Another cornerstone is the house and museum in Portlligat in Cadaqués. Dalí converted these former fishing huts into his home and studio. You can see rows of rooms with different heights. They give the viewer the impression of a labyrinth in which furniture and personal items of the great artist are located. The house can only be visited by appointment. The third and last point of the triangle is the castle of Púbol in the municipality of La Pera in the Baix Empordá. He gave it to his wife Gala because he had promised her that she would be his queen at the castle. Today there is an art collection showing Dalás Muse's private rooms, her collection of haute couture clothes, and the tomb where Gala is buried.
