Barcelona is perfectly located between the warm waters of the Mediterranean Sea and the Tibidabo hills. The idyllic Balearic Islands are to the east of the city, the famous resorts of the Costa Brava (Wild Coast) and the towering mountains of the Pyrenees are to the north, the wine growing region lies to the west and the lovely Roman city of Tarragona and the beach town of Sitges are to the south. There is something to door somewhere to explore whichever way you turn in this charming city.

Barcelona is home to the works of many of the most famous artists and architects of recent times, including the modernist spires of Gaudi's Cathedral, Picasso's Cubist art and Dali's Surrealism. The distinctive Catalan perspective has had an impact that is felt way beyond the region.

If you stroll down the most famous street in Barcelona, the Ramblas (which leads right down to the sea) you will witness grand opera houses, beautiful churches, street artists and mimes, cafés and bars galore and of course great shopping at and around the market.

The centre piece of the Gothic Quarter is its fine cathedral. The Picasso Museum, which houses the best collection of Picasso’s work in spain is nearby.

Barcelona is justifiably also famous for its nightlife. It sometimes appears that every other building is a club, cafés or bar. Nightlife is Spain, and in Barcelona in particular, tends to start and finish late and dinner is usually served after 9pm. After dinner you can pick from a huge range of bars or cafes to continue your evening’s entertainment and those with plenty of stamina can then move onto the open-air nightclubs in the Tibidabo Hills amongst other options.

With all this to offer, Barcelona is a great place to take your TESOL course as well as having a great time outside of course hours. Whether you like beaches or mountains, art or history, cafes or nightclubs, Barcelona really does offer something for everyone.
