Barcelona has long been a popular city break destination as the city offers all sorts of entertainments and attractions for just about every sector of society, from beautiful cathedrals to contemporary theatre. This is a city that is an attractive destination for lone travellers and family groups alike.
Behind the Boom
There are a number of reasons for this boom to tourism in the city; the new hotels are opening primarily because of the reasonably low property prices, allowing for more opportunities for developers to work towards accommodating the expected increase in tourist to the city. Barcelona is a city that seems to embrace the arts in all shapes and sizes and some of the new developments are employing the very best in contemporary design to lure visitors to their rooms.
