Spain's Barcelona: An over-burdened tourist destination but worth visiting
"Barcelona is an important tourist city in Spain that is located on the sea coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besos, and bounded to the west by a mountain range and ranked the most popular city to visit in the country," said my kin who visited the city last year.

All kinds of tourists visit the city both for holidaying and learn about the rich culture and  history of the place.  However, it has a rich cultural heritage as its  major tourist destination that include the renowned the architectural works of Antoni Gaudíi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner as parts of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites besides six others and other historical monuments worth visiting.

For the holidayers, there are numerous recreational areas with the best beaches with mild and warm climate with several hundred hotels and well developed tourist infrastructure.

"Moreover, Barcelona is a transport hub and the busiest European passenger port with a high-speed rail line linking the city to France and the rest of Europe," he informed.

Also, the city has a long tradition of creative art and typical craftsmanship providing souvenirs to be cherished by the visitors.

"But, of late the city police have been having a tough time dealing with pickpockets, who keep on eyeing the wallets and passports of the visitors.  For a visit of a few days for sightseeing, it continues to be one of best destinations in Europe," signs out my kin urging to visit it for once.
