-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Barcelona is the largest city in Catalonia region of Spain, with 1.6 million population. Founded by the Romans. It is located on the northeast coast on the Mediterranean Sea. It is very popular with tourists from around the world. The hotels are from luxury to scruffy. I"ve stayed in luxury at Sants station , and scruffy at the bottom of La Rambla.---Barcelona has a airport 17km ( 11 mile ) from city centre. --- I arrived by train at Sants and Estacio de Franca stations. Trains are run by RENFE.---- Ferries go to many places including Palma, Mahon, Ibiza, Algiers and Italy.-- The currency is the Euro. -------To sportsmen/women Barcelona means football , i went on a tour of the stadium Camp Nov, largest in Europe.-----------------------------------------------------------------------The street that everybody goes to is The Rambla, very crowded, a lovely tree lined street.That runs from Placade Cataluna to the Columbus Monument at Passeig de Colum at the harbour. There are nice walks around the harbour. Barcelona has some nice beaches. I went to the top of the Columbus monument, by lift, for the view.--- Another place for a view is the roof of Barcelona Cathedral, there is a lift. I visited Sagrada Familia , the basilica that was designed by Gaudi. Park Guell is a nice place to see.=== Barcelona has a good Metro underground system.-------------------
