What can I say? Football! We all know that this city has one of the biggest and richest football clubs in the world (and sport in general, Barcelona has also very successful basketball and handball clubs) The summer of 2010 Spain won for the first time the world cup and the party was on none stop.
Futbol Club Barcelona
A Centenary Soccer club founded by a non-spaniards friends a century ago.. now its one of the best team in Europe and therefore in the world..
His stadium placed in Travessera de les Corts is a excellent Barcelona's Highlight
The best option to arrive is taking subway till 'Les Corts' (green line)or till 'Collblanc' (blue subway)
I suggest try to view any match of FC Barcelona .. who usually play on Sunday at 17h or saturday if they have to play Champions League on tuesday or wednesday
As you may know, the "corridas de toros" are one of Spain's most important traditions. And although they are usually carried out in Pamplona --San Fermin-- you will come across "arenas" in every city in Spain.
Most people in Spain are enjoying bull-fighting. I can't understand why. I think it's a brutal 'sport' and i wouldn't suggest anyone to attend one. But, it's a matter of personal opinion. Well, here is my opinion. OK, i know it's dangerous. I know that a lot of matadors have been injured or died by bulls. But the fight is still in the favor of the matadors. Before each fight the bull is already weakened by being denied food for some days. While entering the arena the bull is initially blinded by the bright light (since he was in a dark corridor just moments before) and then confused by the crowds yells. The bull now is furious and attacks anything moving near him. Then he is weakened even more by the spear that a horsed man puts in his back. They stab arrows on his weakest spot of his nervous system that stay attached on his back until the end. And then the 'brave' matador comes and takes the bull out of his misery.
You might wonder how i know all that. A spanish friend of mine used to work in the arena stables.
Fortunately, in Cataluna they don't have bull-fightings so often.
