The Catalunia region
Barcelona may make the biggest splash with visitors, but it's the rest of Catalunya that defines the region's distinct – and proud – identity. Out of the city – and especially in rural areas – you'll hear Catalan spoken more often and find better Catalan food. Towns and villages are surprisingly prosperous, a relic of the early industrial era when Catalunya developed more rapidly than most of Spain. There's a confidence in being Catalan that dates back to the fourteenth-century Golden Age, when it was a kingdom that ruled the Balearics, Valencia, the French border regions, and even Sardinia. Today, Catalunya is officially a semi-autonomous comunidad, but it can still feel like a separate country – cross the borders into Valencia or Aragón and you soon sense the difference.
Catalunya (Cataluña in Castilian Spanish, Catalonia in English) is a spectacular study in contrasts, from the soaring peaks of the Pyrenees to the sparkling blue water of the Mediterranean's shallow coves. The showy swagger of Costa Brava's mega-resorts, just in the middle of the Maritime Walk and 50 meters from the beach. ), meanwhile, mixes alluringly with the stillness of ancient Parish Churches hidden deep in the heartland. Despite this diversity, however, Catalunya is relatively compact, so it's possible – as many a local will proudly point out – to ski in the morning and sunbathe on the beach in the afternoon.
On the whole everything is easily reached from Barcelona; the city is linked to most main centres by excellent bus and train services. The obvious targets are the coasts north and south of the city, and the various provincial capitals (Girona, Tarragona and Lleida), destinations that make a series of comfortable day-trips. Even on a short trip, you can take in the medieval city of Girona and the surrounding area, which includes the extraordinary volcanic Garrotxa region, as well as the best of the beach towns on the Costa Brava, which runs up to the French border. This was one of the first stretches of Spanish coast to be developed for mass tourism, and though that's no great recommendation, the large, brash resorts are tempered by some more isolated beaches and lower-key holiday and fishing villages, such as Cadaqués. Just inland from the coast, Figueres contains the Teatre-Museu Dalí, Catalunya's biggest tourist attraction.
With more time, you can head for the Catalan Pyrenees, which offer magnificent and relatively isolated hiking territory, particularly in and around the Parc Nacional de Aigüestortes, and good skiing in winter. South of Barcelona, the Costa Daurada features a fine beach at Sitges and the attractive coastal town of Salou with its beaches ,golf course and the famous Puerta Ventura atractions;(Nord-est towards Barcelona, the appealing cava vineyards around Sant Sadurní d'Anoia or the romantic Monastery of Poblet figure as approaches to the enjoyable provincial capital of Lleida.
The Catalan people have an individual and deeply felt historical and cultural identity, seen most clearly in the language, which takes precedence over Castilian on street names and signs. Despite being banned for over thirty years during the Franco dictatorship, Catalan survived behind closed doors and has staged a dramatic comeback since the Generalísimo's death. As in the Basque Country, though, regionalism goes back much farther than this.
Early origins to the twentieth century.On the expulsion of the Moors in 874, Guifré el Pelós (Wilfred the Hairy) established himself as the first independent Count of Barcelona; his kingdom flourished and the region became famous for its seafaring, mercantile and commercial skills, characteristics that to some extent still set the region apart. In the twelfth century came union with Aragón, though the Catalans kept many of their traditional, hard-won rights (usatges). From then until the fourteenth century marked Catalunya's Golden Age, and in 1359 the Catalan Generalitat – Europe's first parliamentary government – was established.
The legend of the bloody flag
Many legends swirl around the colourful Guifré el Pélos (“Wilfred the Hairy”), who established himself as the first count of Barcelona in the ninth century. One such story is the bloody creation of the Catalan flag.
As the legend goes:
Guifré el Pélos ( the hairy ), was mortally wounded in a battle against the Normans (some say the battle was against the Moors). The Frankish king Charles el calvo ( the Bald ), wanted to pay tribute to the dying Guifré's bravery by awarding him a coat of arms on the battlefield. The king is said to have dipped Guifré's hands in his own freshly drawn blood, and then ran his fingers across the golden shield; hence the four bands of red on a yellow background.
In 1469, through the marriage of Fernando V (of Aragón) to Isabel I (of Castile), they were known as the Catholic Kings and they , by the Queen Isabel I , persuading King Fernando, financed the built of the Caravelles LA NINA, LA PINTA AND THE SANTA MARIA in order for Cristobal Colon to discover the new territories whatever or where-ever they may have been .
The region of Catalunya was added on to the rest of the emergent Spanish state. Throughout the following centuries the Catalans made various attempts to secede from the stifling grasp of central bureaucracy, which saw the Catalan enterprise as merely another means of filling the state coffers. Early industrialization, which was centered here and in the Basque Country, only intensified political disaffection, and in the 1920s and 1930s anarchist, communist and socialist parties all established major power bases in Catalunya.
The Civil War to the present day.
In 1931, after the fall of the dictator General Primo de Rivera, a Catalan Republic was proclaimed and its autonomous powers guaranteed by the new Republican Government. Any incipient separatism collapsed, however, with the outbreak of the Civil War, during which Catalunya was a bastion of the Republican cause, Barcelona holding out until January 1939. In revenge, franco pursued a policy of harsh suppression, attempting to wipe out all evidence of Catalan cultural and economic primacy.
Among franco's more "subtle" methods was the encouragement of immigration from other parts of spain in order to dilute regional identity. Even so, Catalunya remained obstinate, the scene of protests and demonstrations throughout the dictatorship, and after franco's death a Catalan government was formally reinstated in 1979. This, the semi-autonomous Generalitat, enjoys a high profile and is gradually extending its power, and the local police, or Mossos d'Esquadra, continue to replace the national forces.
Last September 2012, on the 11th more that one million people ( spanish Goverment figures 100,000, as usual always lying ), from all over Catalunya and other parts of the World , me included , marched peacefully through the streets of Barcelona the atmosphere and feeling of belonging was overwhelming and I fully understood why my father fought in the spanish Civil War.
The 11th of September is a day of remembrance we call it DIADA and is a National Day of Catalonia it started its celebration on the 11th of September of 1886 and was suppressed by the franco dictatorship in 1939 and reinstated by the Generalitat of Catalunya in 1980. It commemorates the defeat of the Catalan troops fighting during the war of the spanish Succession and were defeated at the siege of Barcelona by the bourbon king phillip V on the 11th of September 1714. Next year will be 300 years. Hence why we Catalonians want to vote for OUR RIGHT to decide whether we want to be independent of spain by then.
I WILL BE NEXT MONTH ON THE 11th at the DIADA and will march and cry at the same time with company, to defend my rights as an undiluted CATALONIAN.
Barcelona has transformed itself from smug backwater into one of the most dynamic and stylish cities in the world. Summer is serious party time, with week-long fiesta fun. But year-round the city sizzles - food, fashion, style, music and good times. The buildings, many the work of the eccentric genius Gaudí, will blow you away. The art, with significant collections by Picasso and Miró, will make you giddy all over.
FANCY SOME IDEAS .....?
1. Ramble down colourful La Rambla
One of the most famous boulevards in the world, La Rambla is worth a stroll down even if you only have one day in Barcelona. A gateway to rural Catalonia, the mile-long road bustles with tourists, artists, human statues, fortune-tellers, dancers and musicians. Vibrant flower stalls, a cultural and exhibition centre, the superb La Boqueria market, a Joan Miró mosaic, newspaper kiosks and cafés line the street. You may pay a fortune to sip a cola at a roadside café but the people-watching opportunities will be worth the price.
2. Get up close to Gaudí's grand designs
In Barcelona, you can gaze in wonder at Gaudí's fairytale architecture. The Sagrada Familia is breathtaking and grotesque by turns. At first glance, it seems as though a careless giant has dripped melting wax over a Gothic cathedral, but a closer look reveals that the protuberances create a stone tapestry of Christ's life. Take the lift to the top for a breathtaking view. Park Güell is a magical place that emulates an English garden city. After seeing the gatehouses, based on designs for the opera Hansel and Gretel, you can walk up a splendid staircase, past a mosaic lizard to what once was a marketplace. Outside, climb to the heights of the park to gaze down at the magnificent panorama. And right in the centre of the city you can take a break from shopping and gaze at La Pedrera, a work of art in its own right, which also houses three exhibition spaces. Even the rooftop chimneys are something to marvel at.
3. Hit a high note in concert
Barcelona has its fair share of live music venues, such as Razzmatazz and Apolo. But there are also marvellous concert halls. The Gran Teatre del Liceu is a splendid place, decorated by gold leaf, plush red carpets and ornate carvings. L'Auditori is a sleek 2,400-seater venue that covers not only classical but also jazz and world music. The Palau de la Música Catalana is celebrated for its Modernista architecture, and sheer volume of musical activity. There are a cluster of music festivals, ranging from the pop-infused Primavera Sound to the Festival Internacional de Jazz de Barcelona.
4. Picture the city of Picasso's youth
Picasso remembered Barcelona as beautiful and bright, a city where he spent his early years. Follow in the footsteps of the artistic genius by visiting the landmarks that shaped his youth. Stroll along the Calle Reina Cristina and then cross over to 3 Carrer de la Mercè to see where his family lived, though the building was later destroyed. For a break, stop by the Els Quatre Gats, a café frequented by Catalonia's fin-de-siècle avant-garde. Then, head straight to the Museu Picasso, a gallery that records Picasso's formative years.
5. Pick up a platter at a pintxo bar
Picking on pintxos, platters of bite-sized food served on bread (a Basque version of tapas), is a popular culinary trend in Barcelona. Tradition calls for you to pick at the food with toothpicks, and at the end of the night you will be charged for the number of toothpicks that you have used. The Old Town Basque house Euskal Etxea invites you to savour dainty little croissants filled with jamón serrano, chicken tempura with saffron mayonnaise, melted provolone with mango and ham, or a mini-brochette of pork.
6. Climb up the magical Montjuïic
Montjuïic is perfect for a leafy stroll with great views, but hard to reach so is less populated by tourists. Scattered across the landward side are buildings from the 1992 Olympic Games, including Santiago Calatrava's Olympic needle, while facing the sea is the lighthouse and vast cemetery. Energetic visitors can climb to the top of the hill, which is just a short distance from the Olympic stadium and Jardi Botànic. The Plaça Espanya provides the most popular access to the park. Here, you can visit the Pavelló Mies van der Rohe and cultural centre CaixaForum.
7. Walk on the arty side
In Barcelona, a walk in the park is not just a relaxing experience but an artistic journey as well. Stroll round the leafy gardens of the Teatre Grec and then head to the Fundació Joan Miró, one of the greatest museums in the world. It's home to a collection of over 225 paintings, 150 sculptures and graphic pieces by the Spanish surrealist artist, along with a number of works by his contemporaries. Wander over to the Jardins Laribal, meticulously designed by the French landscape artist Jean-Claude Nicolas Forestier. Don't miss the Tres Pins nursery, where plants are grown for the city's municipal parks and gardens, or forget to tip your hat to the bronze statue of the Italian poet Dante Alighieri in the Plaça Dante Alighieri.
8. Revel in the Raval
Like Paris, Barcelona has a literary flavour. In this city, many writers have been inspired by the lower Raval, generally referred to as the Barrio Chino, a name coined by an American journalist due to its underworld feel in the 1920s. Haunted by drifters and prostitutes, the seedy ghetto forms a strangely glamorous setting for Jean Genet's existential novel The Thief's Journal (1949) and provides the backdrop for the civil war novel The Palace (1962) by Nobel prize-winner Claude Simon and The Margin by André Pieyre de Mandiargues (1967), which was made into a film. For a bite of tapas, visit Els Tres Tombs, a favourite with the Sunday book market scavengers. You can browse through books at the cosy bar of Café de les Delicies and catch a poetry reading at The Quiet Man.
9. Be a model photographer
Barcelona is a picturesque, place, so even if you're new to the art of photography, the city still manages to look good. Some scenes, of course, are
more photogenicn than others. To spot a few, wander through Almacenes del Pilar (Boqueria, 43). Here, you'll find a glorious array of fabrics and accessories for traditional Spanish costumes on display in a Bohemian interior dating back to 1886. For mouth-watering photographs, head to the city's most central food market and gourmand's pilgrimage La Boqueria along La Rambla, where you'll discover layers of fruit and veg, olives and herbs in full colour. For a bird's eye view, ascend the Torre de Collserola, Norman Foster's galactic communications tower. Xavier, as a good local fella like me knows Collserola awfully well and can take you there.
10. Chow down fresh seafood
No one leaves Barcelona without sucking on an oyster. The city toasts the fine and luxurious Galician restaurant Rias de Galicia in Poble-sec, as well as Cachitos in the Eixample, for their fantastic assortment of seafood. Cal Pep in the Born is known for its trifásico, a mélange of fried whitebait, squid rings and shrimps, and exquisite little tallarines (wedge clams). The Barceloneta restaurants La Mar Salada and Can Solé display a spectacular haul of fresh seafood every day, which is likely to tempt you if you're piscatorially inclined.
11. Perfect your path to heaven
Even if you're not the religious sort, you should visit the magnificent churches of Barcelona. The Sant Pau del Camp is a rare example of Romanesque architecture, with a fantastical façade and extraordinary cloister. The graceful basilica of the Santa Maria del Mar is perhaps the best surviving example of Catalan Gothic, and makes a great place to go for a classical concert. And the holy architecture of Sagrada Familia will lift your heart to the heavens. Take your time to explore these beautiful buildings, you might even become a believer.
12. Savour the best in new Catalan cooking
For a taste of Catalan cooking, visit the Cinc Sentits, which is creating quite a stir in Barcelona gastronomic circles. Talented Canadian-Catalan chef Jordi Artal shows respect for local classics (flat coca bread with foie gras and crispy leeks, duck magret with apple), while adding a personal touch in dishes such as a Palamós prawn in ajoblanco (garlic soup) with cherries and an ice-cream made from their stones. To finish, save room for the artisanal Catalan cheeses or the 'false egg' with white chocolate around a passionfruit yolk. Cinc Sentits has finally been acknowledged by the Michelin men with a long overdue star, but this is still one of the more affordable of the city's top-end restaurants.
13. Discover your sweet tooth
Barcelona is the perfect place to indulge in sweet treats. You'll be spoilt for choice with its selection of confectionery shops. For posh chocolates in fancy packaging, head to Escribà; and for cooked candy visit Papabubble, where you can see the sweets being rolled in front of your eyes. If you're over in Spain during the winter and fancy a hot chocolate, stop by the milk bar La Granja. Handsomely fitted with antiques, it serves thick and frothy cocoa, which will warm you up.
14. Marvel at Modernista architecture
Barcelona's love of Modernista has been a passionate affair and the evidence is scattered across the city. In the Dreta area of Eixample, there are some masterpieces. The fairest of them is Gaudí's luminous Casa Batlló, built for textile tycoon. Nearby, you can gaze at his rivals' architecture: the shiny Casa Amatller by Puig i Cadafalch, and the decadent Casa Lleó Morera (on the corner of C/Consell de Cent at No.35) by Domènech i Muntaner. Nearby, you'll find his Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau, whose city gardens offer a pleasant oasis amid the bustling city. This UNESCO World Heritage Site has 20 pavilions.
15. Fill your suitcase with local threads
Style comes with all kinds of price tags in Barcelona. High street shoppers will easily recognise the Spanish labels Mango and Zara, but fashionistas should not miss a stop in Zazo&Brull, owned by a couple of designers who combine materials and textures with beautiful results and at an affordable price. If it's accessories you're hunting for, find the object of your desire at Cuervo Cobberblack Bird, where you can pick up a pair of hancrafted shoes, or pop into RooM in the Borne district where Anaid Kupuri's shoes are sold. The Box, dedicated to the fruits of the labour of local talent, as well as Syngman Cucala are among other shops and boutiques where you can get real finds, all made in Barcelona.
16. Visit the gay heart of the city
If Barcelona wanted a gay capital, it would most certainly pick the Eixample, nicknamed Gaixample for the sheer number of stores and clubs that cater to this clientele. Start the night with a drink in Museum or Plata Bar. In summer, a stop at the terrace of the Axel Hotel is a must. If dancing till dawn is your goal, Metro is always a great choice, as is the classic Arena, where both boys and girls are welcome.
17. Dance your way to a street party
How long can you party non-stop? A week? Then September is a good time to visit, because the Festes de la Mercè swings into town. It started life as a small religious parade but since then it has snowballed into a week-long party celebrating Catalan culture. Performances, dazzling firework displays along the beaches, a sea-front air show, exhibitions, children's activities and free concerts (playing everything from sea shanties to hip hop) make this a celebration of Barcelona in all its splendour.
18. Sip a cocktail on a terrace
The best place to kick back and enjoy a cold beer in Barcelona is one of the many outdoor bars and cafés. Bar Colombo is a little tapas bar with a sunny terrace overlooking the port, while the Australian-run Bar Kasparo offers outdoor seating beneath shady arcades overlooking an a playground for children. Another option is Bar Calders, a friendly hole-in-the-wall with a terrace on which to relax. There are also a number of bustling cafés with terraces along La Rambla, such as Quim de la Boqueria.
19. Bag some designer bargains
If you're a dedicated designer bargain-hunter, make the 30-minute pilgrimage just outside the City to La Roca Village ( the bus Stop is near to the apartment. More than 50 discount outlets will tempt you with designer apparel from popular brands such as Antonio Miró, Versace, Diesel and Camper. DO NOT MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY.
20. Have a passionate flamenco fling
A trip to Barcelona calls for a fling with flamenco. Of course, many of us are not graced with dancing skills, but that doesn't stop you being a spectator of the traditional Spanish dance form. Head to El Tablao de Carmen, where established stars and new talent display a vibrant spectrum of flamenco singing, dancing and music. Los Tarantos in Plaça Reial has become a popular tourist hangout, but the acts still turn heads. For vanguard performances, see the Festival Ciutat Flamenco in May.

"Very friendly modern and clean"
Very friendly and helpful owner and assistant upstairs Flat very modern in style, clean and comfortable.Everything worked well. Only negative is that it is not in the centre but it is very close to metro and has direct buses to parc guell and sagrada familia.

"Great location, every comfort."
We had a fantastic week in this lovely apartment. Xavier and Enrique were charming and it was reassuring to have someone close by to ask advice should we need to.
Barcelona has so much to offer, with lots to do and to see, - one week is hardly enough.
Close to supermarkets and just around the corner is a whole large shopping complex. The metro system is marvellous - very easy to find your way around, as are the buses.
Get a T10 ticket at any train/metro or bus station - it will give you cheaper and hassle free journeys. Advisable to book online for La Sagrada Familia as the queues are very long.
The Catalan and Spanish people are lovely and very kind and helpful.
It is very easy to be charming to people like you.

"Good location & service but at an extra hidden cost"
It is a good central location near metro station in a residential apartment.Beautifully maintained but has issues related to being in a residential area.… More
Thank you very much for your review.
The 'HIDDEN COST' you refer is the cleaning cost of 50 euros which is perfectly explained on the website.
Except when the apartment is rented at the full rental price of £ 150 per night which in this case there is no cleaning costs.
YES there are issues related to being in a Residential Area, you only have to scroll down and read the other reviews.

"Very hospitable and friendly, lovely apartment"
Enrique and Xavier were extremely welcoming and helpful. It was so sweet of them to have a cheese and meat platter as well as a bottle of wine for us upon our arrival. They were always easily reachable and eager to help in any way that they could. The apartment is beautifully furnished and close to the metro station. It's located a little outside of downtown Barcelona, but the metro station is very close.
Thank you very much for your review.

Thank you very much for your kind words.
With regards your previous experience, sadly I must say it is VERY occurring in the old part of Barcelona. Some say Central , but is not. It is the old Barcelona you go and visit the old Barcelona but you do not stay.
The apartments in the old Barcelona which people think is the centre is what they are old....and in need of very extensive and expensive restoration . Currently the Council after many fines to the owners for not restoring their properties have already taken possession of several buildings and restoring them for low rent to benefits people.
Two advices to people wanting to rent an apartment in Barcelona if they want to rest and sleep, keep out of old Barcelona.
Most important make sure the apartment is registered with the CATALUNYA TOURIST BOARD.
You now have my personal website and you can see I have five other apartments in different locations, when you decide to come back, have a good look and then I will be ablel to advise on the holidays of your life.....
It has been a delight to have you and your family with us .....love Enrique xxx

Only one correction......je je je .....the bus goes straight towards the beach and then it turns into a sharp right.....GET OFF THERE, you walk towards the beach ...you are five minutes walk....je je je ...trust me ...I was born right there. Still as you went to the end it took you to Ciudatela ( the zoo is situated there), everywhere is very nice and it is in the heart of the Olimpic Village.
It was a pleasure to have you all with us regards and love Enrique
