Barcelona is a cosmopolitan, eclectic, intercultural, and over all, modern city. It is a city open to the world in which there’s place for all tendencies. A symbol of modernity in Europe. A city at the forefront of architecture, design, culture, gastronomy and many other disciplines. Barcelona is an icon of modernity in itself.
This modern tendency can be noticed in its buildings, its people, its atmosphere, in its restaurants, its shops and its lifestyle. A walk around some of the most emblematic neighbourhoods may well become a trip to the last cultural and aesthetic tendencies.
The neighbourhood of Raval is an example of an area which has converted into an active neighbourhood with its own personality. The inauguration of different bars, restaurants and cafeterias of well-cared design have contributed to the area of Raval becoming one of the daily meeting points and in style areas in the city.
Modern boutiques, galleries and art studios inaugurated in this area have also contributed to the success of this neighbourhood, which attracts people with a feeling for the most modern cultural tendencies from all over the world.
At the heart of Raval neighbourhood we find the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona, the Macba, a reference in the last tendencies of modern art. The museum shows works of different styles from the second half of the XXth century and it is famous for offering a new interactive experience to all its visitors.
The modern Barcelona is also reflected in its restaurants and cafeterias, which focus on the originality in their decoration and menus, the result of which is a great variety of restaurants which offer a new innovative gastronomic and cultural experience to its guests.
Barcelona is also famous for its concerts and exhibitions of internationally renowned artists. The Sala Apolo, for example, has a long history of concerts by the most modern and alternative bands of the international panorama.
