The Tribe's opinion

Barcelona is and isn't Spain. It's located on the region call "Catalunya", have your one language - in my opinion a really ugly and confused mixed from spanish, french and a little bit of italian - a lot of persons there are 'separatists' and want Catalunya like a independent country (nuts!). Gaudí, the genius, born and live most of the time in Barcelona. This amazing architect became a closer friend from Guell - a really rich man - so the city was blessing with a lot of Gaudi's arts. Yes, Barcelona it is dangerous! Keep your eyes very open, but enjoy what this beautiful has to offer.
