Barcelona, the Capital of Catalunya is a city that needs no introduction with its amazing Gaudi styled buildings and architecture like the unfinished church of the Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, Casa Mila, and not to mention Barcelona FCs Nou Camp and the hills and cable car of Montjuic. The 1992 Olympics showcased the city and its flair for organizing. The running events here show off that organizational skill and take in many of the well-known sights of this grid like city. Our hotels are perfectly located for your sightseeing, your airport transfers and most importantly your race.
