Barcelona and Surroundings
Barcelona hardly needs an introduction since it is one of the most interesting and lively cities in Europe. Situated on the Mediterranean coast, it has a wonderful climate: hot summers and mild sunny winters. Barcelona's climate and location, together with all the other attractions it offers make it one of the best destinations both for tourists and students.
The city offers a wide range of cultural attractions from the Picasso and Miró Museums to the Gaudí buildings, the cathedral, the Gothic Quarter etc. Not only does culture stand out in Barcelona but you will also find an exciting nightlife with bars and restaurants on every corner: the atmosphere is friendly, laid-back and stylish. There's nothing quite like a walk down Paseo de Gracia or the Ramblas - this stretch must be one of the most unique in the world.
The city's magnificent climate means that its streets, squares and parks are full of people enjoying the outdoor atmosphere and hospitality that the city is so famous for. Barcelona changes every season and, of course, during the summer you can enjoy the sunny weather, the sea and wonderful sandy beaches.
There are many well-worth-a-visit places near Barcelona and which are within easy reach. We recommend the sandy beaches and rocky coves of the Costa Brava, the Dalí museum in Figueras and the Monastery of Monserrat. During the winter there is skiing in the nearby Pyrenees. An easy day trip can also be made to the impressive Montserrat Monastery and mountain.
