Barcelona, a city open to the Mediterranean

JNCW 2015 will be held in Barcelona, one of the nicest European cities to visit. Its museums, art galleries and nightlife are of an impressive high standard. The metropolis has become in the last decades a modern and vibrant place that welcomes visitors from all over the world attracted by its vitality and personality. Besides that, this meditarrean capital has a lot of interesting sights to offer to its visitors. Walk along the Ramblas, a pedestrian street with dozens of outdoor cafes, to enjoy street musicians, living statues, flower stands and book kiosks. Stroll the narrow winding streets of the Barri Gotic, the medieval Gothic quarter full of interesting tapas bars and cafes. Check out Picasso’s museum or even his favourite hangout, Els Quatre Gats, where he used to meet with other avant-garde artists and which has been renovated without loosing its bohemian charm. Or head for the old Barceloneta on the waterfront to enjoy the sea view and have a sunset drink at a chiringuito bar at the beach. And of course, don’t forget to visit some of Gaudi’s modernist buildings, like the famous and still unfinished Sagrada Família or the magnificent Casa Batlló and La Pedrera in the fashion center of the city, Passeig de Gràcia.
