Barcelona is a wonderful place to learn Spanish. A sophisticated city with style, allure and an unbelievable number of things to see and do. It lies at the foot of Mount Montjuic where the famous Mies van de Rohe Pavilion is found as well as the Pueblo Español, a Spanish village in which the houses, streets and squares are representative of all of Spain. “Downtown” in the city, culture lovers can get their fill of paintings by famous artists such as Picasso and Miro among others. Or, they can visit the many architectural wonders which the famous architect Gaudi created around the city. The old part of the city, known as the “Barrio Gotico”, with its old city walls, narrow streets and beautiful monuments, is well worth a visit. During the evening a stroll along the elegant boulevard Las Ramblas is an experience not soon to be forgotten. And do not forget the alluring Mediterranean sea, which always invites you for a refreshing dip. Barcelona is a metropolis where you will quickly feel at home. There is also plenty to do around Barcelona: nearby mountain ranges (Montserrat, Sierra Montseny and a little further away the Pyrennes) are quiet, green and dotted with picturesque villages.
