Hola amigos!

This card I got from my father from his vacations to Barcelona. Danke Papa, Renate und Hendrik!

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid.

Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona became the capital of the County of Barcelona. After merging with the Kingdom of Aragon, Barcelona became the most important city of the Crown of Aragon. Besieged several times during its history, Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination. Particularly renowned are the architectural works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The headquarters of the Union for the Mediterranean is located in Barcelona. The city is known for hosting the 1992 Summer Olympics as well as world-class conferences and expositions and also many international sport tournaments.

I like this card which is showing the ancient barrio gótico! It is very beautiful!

I send love!
