Barcelona in detail

Since bursting onto the world stage as the host of the 1992 Olympic Games Barcelona has rocketed through the ranks of European tourism and firmly established itself as one of the continent's leading cruise destinations. Barcelona treats cruise passengers to a rich medley of architecture, with the signature parabolic arches of its most famous son, modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, stamped across the city.

Barcelona's buildings also showcase the work of Lluis Domènech i Montaner and Josep Puig i Cadafalch, while its museums pay homage to the likes of Joan Miró and Picasso. Back outside, the world-famous La Rambla (Mediterranean cruises dock at its eastern end) buzzes with the chatter from pavement cafes and quirky street performers entertain the tourist throngs. With a raft of shops selling everything from tourist memorabilia to exclusive fashion designs and an eclectic and seemingly infinite number of bars and restaurants, Barcelona really does have something for everyone.
