Barcelona Spain has a great history, and people who live in the area have much room to brag about the beautiful place of which they live.
Much of its history still stands throughout and can be admired by travelers and citizens alike. Still more culture and history is added in the Barcelona area even now. As well as its added culture, tourism has taken on a huge role as well throughout Barcelona. The best way to take advantage of all that this area has to offer on your vacation is to thoroughly plan ahead of time and arrive with your map in hand, and be ready to go. Find a suitable map that will give you not only directions, but also tell you details about hotels, festivals and celebrations, entertainment, and prominent exhibitions.
If your looking for a more updated modern version of Barcelona, you would be doing yourself a benefit by going directly to Guell Park first thing. Nearly this whole area of natural space is filled with the great artist architecture of Antonio Gaudi, probably one of Spain’s most famous and celebrated artists. Gaudi made everyday things into artwork, including but not limited to balconies, walls as murals, entire buildings, as well as even benches into paintings. Be prepared to have couple roles of film on hand, because as soon as you fill your camera up on the aforementioned area, then comes the famous Gaudi work Sagrada Familia Church. This is one piece of artwork that has never stopped progression, being started in 1883 and not stopping until even the present day.
Another great marvel of Barcelona s the Barcelona Zoo. This zoo is located in the Ciutadella Park, and is home to over 7500 different species of animals. While everyone has their favorite animal, is always the peculiar ones that get the most attention, especially from the children. Animals such as long nosed anteater or the miniature little hippo pygmy fit this bill exactly.
However the feature that the zoo takes a ton of pride in is the primate section. You wont have to go very far to find even kangaroos, pelicans, and the good ole American Buffalo because the Barcelona Zoo has them all for your photographing pleasure.
Since the weather is so agreeable, your trip to the zoo can be made any time throughout the year. If you’re lucky enough to go in the warmer of the warm seasons then you’ll enjoy the Aquarama Barcelona, which is the aquarium located inside the zoo.
This will be your chance to see up-close the playful bottlenose dolphins and their shows which take place daily, as well as other marvels of the sea. Your money will also be going to a good cause as you spend around the park since this pays for the programs for preserving endangered species and captive breeding.
Don’t forget too if your traveling with young curious children, or even if you yourself are curious that Barcelona is home to many fabulous museums such as museums that feature the work of Gaudi as well as Picasso. This will give your children some things to go back and tell there teachers about at school, as well as teach them to appreciate art and history at a young age.
Your trip to Barcelona can and certainly will be a very beneficial vacation for both adults and children, letting each witness and learn some culture that will leave a lasting impression through their lives. Always travel safely, and squeeze every ounce of fun as you can out of your short time to visit.
