Barcelona, situated between the sea and the mountains, has been an important center of modernism, especially distinguished by the works of Antoni Gaudí, who together with his great contemporaries, has given the city an exciting new aspect that has set in the top of the painting, architecture and design worldwide. Since the 1992 Olympics Games, Barcelona has become a reference for business tourism, fairs and conferences, as well as one of the most visited tourist destinations in Europe, to enjoy a very mild Mediterranean climate throughout year and have a very varied cultural, artistic and gastronomic; all complemented by the proximity to the beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava and the Pyrenees mountains. Barcelona has been rated as the fifth best tourist destination in the world according to travel website TripAdvisor and "Travellers Choice Destination 2013" placed it in fourth place in the Top 25 European and number one in Spain.
