Local Airports In Barcelona

In addition to knowing about the top destinations in the city, it's wise to know the best time to go to Barcelona for a vacation. The spring and early summer are the best seasons to visit the city for a fun and memorable trip. Not only is the weather pleasant but also the number of travelers is still controllable. It's during the high summer from July to August when even local people notice the high number of tourists that flock to the city of Barcelona. With that in mind, it's time to find out more about the local attractions in the city. The Placa de Catalunya is the heart of the city. It's the crossroads of the major streets of the city including Passeig de Gr, Porta de l', Rambla, and Rambla Catalunya. To be sure, this is no ordinary plaza or square. The place is flowing with cafes and boutiques for your pleasure. Next is the Carrer de Petritxol. If you want to go on a quiet and relaxing day, drop by this narrow street and you'll find art galleries, pastry shops, chocolate rooms, and other gorgeous treats from the Catalan specialties. This old street has preserved mosaics and ceramic panels that feature the city's traditions and customs. At the end of Carrer de Petritxol, you'll find the Placetes del Pi and Placa de Sant Josep Oriol. These are two adjoining town squares where you can find the 15th century gothic church of Santa Maria del Pi, the house of the Congregation of the Holy Blood, the 17th century Shopkeepers' Guild, the statue of Guimer, and the 1571 Fiveller mansion. Of course, don't miss the Las Ramblas, which is a 2 kilometer boulevard featuring numerous mimes, living statues, and specialty shops. Here you'll find almost everything. You'll see people selling jewelry, beach accessories, vegetables, and flowers among other things. You'll find shoeshine boys, big galleries, cafes, terraces, and even street theaters just to name a few. While sounds like a bustling street, it has been able to preserve its original characteristics from when it was first built.
