Description

The purpose of this guide is to describe the geology and scenery of the Mediterranean city of Barcelona. Although a popular tourist destination much in demand for its cultural and historical riches, Barcelona is equally interesting from a geological viewpoint. The three excursions described in this guide can easily be completed in a short citybreak visit using public transp0l1, ideally during weekdays to avoid weekend crowds, and involving a maximum of 4 nights in a hotel (3 excursion days plus arrival and departure days). The excursions visit many of the scenically most attractive parts of the city, including places as yet virtually undiscovered by tourists, and provide an opportunity to see Barcelona from a different perspective.
