Tourists Remain Faithful To Spain Barcelona

Nov 9, 2007
You must put Spain Barcelona on your vacation itinerary, you will be glad you did. The natural beauty of the country is stunning whether you approach it from the Mediterranean Sea or from the air. Divided into seventeen communities; Barcelona is in the community of Catalonia.

The Catalonian Community has its own autonomy. As a result, they have their own local government, police and they maintain control over their community which includes their capitol city Barcelona

When you travel there, you will find a city teeming with over 1.5 million people. They gracefully took world center stage in 1992 when they hosted the Olympic Games. The people of Barcelona speak Catalan and Castillian Spanish. Catalan is spoken throughout Catalonia.

The capitol city is historically and culturally a Mediterranean City that has somehow preserved its Gothic City Center. It has a large number of museums that proudly exhibit their art and history throughout the ages. Visiting the museums is a must because they enable you to get a better understanding and a greater appreciation for the unique culture.

Barcelona is deeply Catholic. One of the best times for a family visit is early Spring during Easter. They have plenty of processions, passion plays and pageantry. It is a great time to visit. Barcelona is known for its small romantic streets and quaint shops. They lure you in as you stroll about with your partner.

This place is definitely on for honeymooners. The beautiful coastline along the Mediterranean Sea is a magnet for tourists. It boasts 5,000 kilometers of coastline along with breathtaking beaches. This area has also provided an added boost to the economy of Spain.

At the end of last year tourism bosses were extremely concerned with the low number of European holidaymakers. The first quarter of this year has seen a marked increase in tourists. There has been somewhat of a visitor resurgence with over ten million holiday makers in the slow months of January, February and March. The vast majority of visitors came from the United Kingdom, followed closely by Germany.

Actually, the number of British arrivals showed a slight drop; while more than 6 per cent extra visitors from Germany ensured a good start for 2007. The Canary Islands turned out to be the most popular community. The Costa del Sol, is a yearly favorite of the British. They are generally looking to thaw out from their brutally cold winter. The warm Spanish sun afforded them a welcome sunny break and in turn gave a much needed boost in arrivals.
