History 

Barcelona was founded on the Mediterranean coast between two rivers more than two thousand years ago. Romans, Arabs and Christians all influenced Barcelona throughout the centuries. Traces of this diverse history with contrasting cultures can be found all over the city – from the Gothic Quarter built on Roman ruins to its Art Nouveau Eixample district dominated by Gaudí’s exuberant architecture. The 1992 Olympic Games were a watershed for the city, prompting a decade of re-development particularly along the sea front.
