My Barcelona

I am privileged to live in one of Spain’s and Europe’s most attractive and desirable cities, Barcelona, the Capital of Catalonia. Historic, high-energy Barcelona is chocked full of arts and culture, incomparable shopping, centuries of architecture, magnificent Mediterranean beaches, endless recreation, unforgettable gastronomy and a lively sports scene.
