The Catalunia region

Barcelona is a city of great cultural interest with an important architectural heritage which is a product of the encounters of the different cultures that have passed through.

An internationally renowned destination with an ample supply of accessible accommodation, cultural and gastronomic routes. In this guide we will pick out the Gothic Route and the Modernisme (Art Nouveau) Route, the work of the great architect Gaudí, as well as other important accessible museums such as the Museum of Catalan History.

The Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic) is in the centre of old Barcelona. We begin the tour at Portal del Bisbe, flanked by two cylindrical towers of the old Roman wall that mark the entrance to the old walled precinct. From here we can walk around the Bishop's Palace, Plaça de Sant Felip Neri, the cathedral or Plaça del Rei.

As a counterpoint to Gothic Barcelona we have the architecture of Gaudí, inspired by nature, with its religious reminiscences and Baroque shapes.

The three highlights of Gaudí's work are: Park Güell, La Sagrada Família and La Pedrera.

The facade of this mansion, which he converted into an impressive undulating mass of stone, recalls an eroded rock formation in constant movement.

In Barcelona you can also relax lying on the sand on any of the adapted beaches, play golf at Golf Montjuïc or go horse riding guided by professionals at Hípica Don Caballo.

And, most of all, do not forget to visit the National Museum of Catalan Art (MNAC) and the Museum of Catalan History, both totally accessible.

Given its fantastic location, Poble Nou (which along with the areas of Diagonal Mar and Villa Olimpica forms part of the Sant Marti district) is tipped as the future Lower Manhattan or London Docklands of Barcelona. Currently undergoing a multi-billion Euro renovation known as the 22@ project, the aim is to turn it into one of Europe´s most important new technology and e-commerce centers.

Poblenou in the district Sant Marti is a popular place in Barcelona to live. Poblenou means 'new village' in Catalan. This area of Barcelona was mostly factories and was known as the 'Catalan Manchester. Today Poblenou is a modern residential area and close to the @22 Barcelona hi-tech business district.

Like its more famous big brother Rambla walking street which is in the centre of Barcelona, the tree lined Rambla de Poblenou is a favourite with residents for strolling, shopping and meeting neighbours. It streches from the Avenida Diagonal all the way down to the Mar Bella beach

The sparkling new Me Hotel while it was being built on street Pere IV 272 in Poblenou. It opened in late 2008 and takes its place on the Barcelona Skyline with 31 floors, which include a panoramic restaurant and roof top pool

Street Marià Aguiló runs parallel with the Rambla de Poblenou and is one of the most charming old shopping streets in Poblenou in Barcelona

When it comes to walking, jogging and bicycling Poblenou residents have great choices. One is the palm tree lined Avenida Diagonal, which crosses the Rambla de Poblenou.

The Torre Agbar is close to the Poblenou area and closest shopping mall is Glories shopping centre on Av. Diagonal
