Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia. It is the second largest city in Spain. Barcelona is also recognised as a global city because of its importance in finance, commerce, media, entertainment, arts and international trade. While staying in reservar hotel Barcelona i also realised that Barcelona is a great tourist center. Barcelona is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination and has a rich cultural heritage. Barcelona has a Mediterranean climate with mild humid winters and warm, dry summers. Barcelona is rich in parks. Our fin de semana Barcelona was situated in the heart of the city. The skyline of the city is decorated in winter by the summit of the Montseny mountain, normally covered by snow. Barcelona is a bilingual city. Its cultural roots go back 2000 years.

Barcelona has seven beaches which includes Sant Sebastia, Barceloneta, Nova Icaria, Bogatell, Mar Bella, Nova Mar Bella and Llevant. Near the historical center in the city i saw a four star hotel Barcelona . Placa Catalunya is the city's historical centre ahnd Avingud Diagonal is the main commercial centre of the city. Barcelona has several skyscrappers, the tallest being the Hotel Arts. hôtels à Barcelone in the city are well built with the unique design. From Roman town it passed to medieval trade juggernaut, and its old centre constitutes one of the greatest concentrations of Gothic architecture in Europe. Beyond this core are some of the world's more bizarre buildings: surreal spectacles capped by Antoni Gaudí's Sagrada Família church.

Hotel Duquesa De Cardona, is in the main area in the city. It is also a stylish hotel aan de kust fully equipped with all the latest facilities. Attractions in the city are close to this area.

Other cities nearby

Madrid, Cadiz and Cordoba




madrid

After staying up in Barcelona we went to Madrid. The capital of Spain, located in the heart of the peninsula and right in the center of the Castillian plain. Here we stayed in the budget hôtel à Madrid which was close to the museums in the city. While Madrid possesses a modern infrastructure, it has preserved the look and feel of many of its historic neighbourhoods and streets. Its landmarks include the huge Royal Palace of Madrid; the Teatro Real (Royal theatre) with its restored 1850 Opera House. Around these attractions in the city i also saw Madrid Hotel , which is architecturally well built. this is a city as at home in the nightclubs and bars that give the streets their soundtrack as it is in the hallowed halls of high culture. While staying in the weekendje Madrid we also enjoyed the best food here.





cadiz

From Madrid we started our journey to Cadiz. It is a city and port in southwestern Spain. Despite its unique site — on a narrow spit of land surrounded by the sea — Cadiz is, in most respects, a typically Andalusian city with a wealth of attractive vistas and well-preserved historical landmarks. We stayed here in the Hotel specials Cadiz which is located in the main city center. The city can boast of an unusual cathedral of various architectural styles, a theatre, an old municipal building, an eighteenth-century watchtower, a vestige of the ancient city wall, an ancient Roman theatre, and electrical pylons of an eye-catchingly modern design carrying cables across the Bay of Cádiz. Our hotel in Cadiz was also close to the local markets in the city. The old town is characterised by narrow streets connecting squares (plazas), bordered by the sea and by the city walls. Most of the landmark buildings are situated in the plazas. Like a typical Spanish coast, Cadiz is blessed with the sun’s golden rays so is quite hot during the summer season. We enjoyed our royal stay in the Cadiz hôtels as well the city attractions and climate.





cordoba

Later then we went to Cordoba. It is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Cordoba. This time we decided to stay in the Cordoba hoteles which is far from the city's hustle bustle. Tourism is especially intense in Cordoba during May because of the weather and as this month hosts three very popular festivals. The May Crosses Festival takes place at the beginning of the month. We also did sightseeing from our Cordoba Hotels only as it is a good place for sightseeing. During three or four days, crosses of around 3 meters of height are placed in many squares and streets and decorated with flowers and a contest is held to choose the most beautiful one. Usually there is regional food and music near the crosses. It is the main festival in the city. As Cordoba is connected to Madrid and Seville by the AVI high speed train, it is possible to visit the city as a day trip from either city. From Madrid the train ride is about one and one half hours (one way). But we decided to stay atleast overnight so we took a room in hotel Cordova promotion which was near to the city attractions but far from city's hustle bustle.
