Although Barcelona is the second-largest city in Spain, it is far from being a complicated megalopolis. Both its size and integrated transportation systems, have made Barcelona famous for being easy and enjoyable to navigate. Proof of it is that it takes only half an hour to either cross the city center on foot or travel by bus from the mountains to the beach.
Quite like any other city, Barcelona is grouped into quarters and neighborhoods. In this case, what makes the city so unique is the fact that these quarters are a result of organic urban growth. In other words, each corner of Barcelona is a consequence of a certain historical period, a frame of mind, and a way of life. Altogether, the city stands out as human-centered and diverse in nature, as it offers us a wide range of neighborhoods each one different to the next.
