Barcelona is Spain's second city and the capital of the Catalonia region, here the locals speak Catalonian first and Spanish second. Barcelona boasts a sunny and warm climate that is perfect for the sun seekers. The city is broken up into several districts that have their own unique feel, from Barcelona's old town of Ciutat Vella to the Modernist Quarter of Eixample. Hiring a car in Barcelona is advised as the city is over 100 square kilometres in size, so doing so will make seeing the city a pleasurable and comfortable experience. Hertz have several locations in and around Barcelona including the main airport of El Prat.
For tourists Barcelona may give a sensory overload with all it has to offer. The Sagrada Familia is one attraction that should not be missed. Building of Gaudi's cathedral began over one hundred years ago. The style of this expansive cathedral has gothic at its heart but with Gaudi's characteristic love of natural forms and dislike for straight lines it makes for an unbelievable and memorable outing. Another place to visit is La Rambla, Barcelona's most famous street. Here you will find small shops, bars and restaurants that should leave you happy and satisfied.
If you are a football fan then a visit to the Camp Nou, FC Barcelona's ground is in order. FC Barcelona have made their name not only in Spain but in the world as one of the best football clubs and they constantly have some of the biggest names in soccer playing there. So why not rent a car and travel in style to go see a match or to just go on a tour of one of Europe's top stadiums.
