Barcelona conjures up images of people sipping café con leche in lively cafés in Plaça de Catalunya, enjoying a refreshing and fruity sangria on the beach and, of course, being mesmerized by Gaudi's quirky architectural masterpieces. Barcelona combines a Mediterranean climate, fine sandy beaches, tons of bars, Catalan delicacies, and a vibrant, young population. It is a fascinating city with a very special charm – the ideal location for a Spanish language course.
The lively city by the sea caters to everyone; in addition to a mix of varied nightlife and fascinating sights and museums, Barcelona is known around the world for its extraordinary architecture. Architect Antoni Gaudi significantly influenced the Catalan capital; from Parc Güell and the fascinating La Sagrada Familia cathedral, to the many large and small structures that can be found throughout Barcelona, it is an art lovers dream.
