Information about Barcelona
Barcelona lies in the northeast of Iberian Peninsula, on the Mediterranean coast. It is the capital city of Catalonia and second biggest city of Spain, also it is the major Mediterranean port. Barcelona is wide known as the city of arts, but it is probably the most important industrial and commercial hub of Spain.
Here magnificently combine ancient buildings, palaces, cathedrals and modern constructions, and the wide streets are hidden in the shadows of plane trees and exotic palms. Barcelona is considered the most beautiful and unique city in the world. The modern look of the city is the result of Antonio Gaudi’s architectural projects, whose works are faultlessly recognized all over the world and became landmarks of this wonderful city.
The jewel of his work is the Holy Family cathedral which was founded in 1882 but it is still under construction according to the sketches of the famous architect. Another beautiful architectural landmark of the city is Gothic Barcelona Cathedral that was built in the 13th century. Gothic architectural style is dominating the entire city, there is even a ancient Gothic neighborhood, situated between the port and the famous La Rambla boulevard.
Francisco Miro was born and raised in Barcelona in the neighborhood of Gracia very close to the famous Park Guell. At the age of 20 he had the need to explore and have new experiences and decided to go to London, England. Francisco was soon integrated in the Anglo culture, learning English and attending University for a degree in Film and Art.
