Barcelona

About the city

La Vanguardia is the name of one of the city’s newspaper, and the vanguard is exactly where Barcelonans are used to finding themselves, for they are residents of Spain’s most progressive city. Beautiful, sprawling Barcelona, filling a great basin ringed with hills on the western end of the Mediterranean, is the embodiment of Catalonia’s artistic genius and commercial inventiveness. Divided into 10 districts each with its own character, the Gothic Quarter is a splendid medieval quarter and the old part of town, which stretches from the seafront to La Rambla. It is here that you’ll find the city’s oldest buildings, narrow streets, churches and the cathedral, La Seu. It also has a good selection of bars, cafes and some quirky independent stores. La Rambla, the most famous street in the city, runs through the heart of the city and provides outdoor theatre on a grand scale. The famous Eixample holds many of Antoni Gaudi’s famous modernist buildings. By far the most famous and extravagant site in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia. If he building is ever completed, it will lokk like a model in the crypt, in the meantime, don’t pass up the opportunity to climb or be lifted to the towers, and wander amid the bridges, steps and crannies of the façade. Barcelona is a great city for arts from opera to architecture, and the meeting point between Spain and the rest of Europe.

Madrid

About the city

Madrid has a tempo of its own: The dry air of the Castilian plain crackles with its cosmopolitan crowds. If the illuminated shop windows along the Gran Vía, and the unrelenting elegance of Paseo de la Castellana are overwhelming, retreat to Old Madrid. Its tangle of side streets south of Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol are what makes the real Madrid. Spend half a day in the Prado Museum, thaat sit to rest on the steps leading down to the lake in lush Retiro Park. The city begins to live it up as soon as the sun goes down. Madrid claims to boast the largest number of bars per capita of any European city. Madrid teems with cultural events all year round. After concert, play or film, you can choose among literally hundreds of tapas bars and an endless array of nightspots. Madrid successfylly combines its cosmopolitan sophistication with its most cherished local traditions, the result is fascinating to explore.

Lisbon

About the city

Lisbon is known as the city of seven hills due to its location, the city spreads across steep hillsides that overlook the Rio Tajo. Romantic and cosmopolitan, the city presents its typical red roofs to the visitors that want to get to know its every inch. Lisbon surprises with its natural beauty and relaxed atmosphere. The Portuguese capital offers lots of museums, libraries, a huge port, churches and palaces and stunning views of the Rio Tajo Lisbon was considered a poor and chaotic city. Currently it has experienced a resurgence in the style of the XIV and XV centuries, when it was part of that vast empire stretching from Brazil to India. The reason for this was the World Expo held in 1998, a new bridge over the Tagus was built and the network of underground of the city was remodeled. The resurgence of the city then continued to host several matches during Euro in 2004, also held there the Delivery Music Awards (MTV) in 2005. Many of its most beautiful buildings date from the XIV and XV centuries, especially the ones located in the Belem district. There are also many buildings from the XVIII century, which are located mostly in the Baixa area of central Lisbon and were reconstructed almost completely after a devastating earthquake that hit the town in 1755. The historic center of the city, standing on Las Siete Colinas, presents steep streets and picturesque alleys. On the west side of the city, there is Monsanto Forest Park, Lisbon’s lung, with an area of 10 km and one of the largest in Europe. The capital’s majestic port has 3 docks commonly used for several cruises and it is, currently, the busiest port in the European Atlantic coast. Lisbon is a city with centuries of history and with an ambitious attitude, marrying the historic with the modern, the traditional with the cutting edge. Strolling through the old quarters one can hear the traditional Fado sung and played in small restaurants in town. In the hilltop district of Bairro Alto, dozens of restaurants and bars line the narrow streets, with jazz, reggae, electronica filling the air and revelers partying until dawn. Nightclubs scattered all over town make fine use of old spaces, whether on riverside docks or tucked away in 18th-century mansions. Lisbon presents itself to the world as a cosmopolitan and lively city, with alternative for every taste, especially in the summer months when its many bars, terraces and restaurants are crammed with people.
