The public transport system in Barcelona is excellent with 5 metro lines. The main hub for buses is the Placa de Catalunya. Each bus stop has a clear display of the various stops and timetable.

Barcelona has more shops per capita than anywhere else in Europe. El Corte Ingles is a huge department store, part of a vast Spanish chain. Here one can buy anything from a needle to an anchor.

La Rambla is Barcelona's most famous promenade stretching for a mile down to the sea. At the sea end stands the Monument to Colon , the world's largest statue of Christopher Columbus.

On the Rambla there are many unforgettable sights not least of all the myriad of human statues and the many turn-of-the century kiosks overflowing with flowers and songbirds. It is at it's best early in the morning and on Sunday lunchtimes.
