The traces of this history and diversity can be followed as you walk through the old town; through its Gothic Quarter, built on Roman ruins; through its art-nouveau Eixample district, presided over by Gaudí’s exuberant architecture. The rich, architectural legacy makes Barcelona the only city in the world with nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
These characteristics have made Barcelona into a first-class tourist destination and the ideal setting for congresses. The good position of the city as a destination for congresses is increasingly evident, and recently the Catalan capital has been placed in third position in the prestigious ranking drawn up by the ICCA (International Congress and Convention Association).
Barcelona is a cosmopolitan city where you can live unique experiences, such as an exclusive visit to an art museum; a master class with a famous chef or enjoy the Shopping Line with more than 200 shops. Throughout the year, the city hosts a number of top-class sporting events, such as the Conde de Godó Tennis Tournament, the Formula 1 World Championship and regular football matches at the famous Barcelona Football Club (Barça).
