Barcelona Map Linked to a Photo Guide of The City Centre

Page Content

On this page you'll find a Barcelona map covering the main tourist attractions, landmarks, monuments and zones in Barcelona city centre. We have also produced a quick reference guide to all our photos in a table below the map.

We have linked photo guides of the city directly to the landmarks and monuments on the map. In this way you can quickly see what the sights look like and in you mind link them to exactly where they are in the city. For ease of identification we've marked all the photo guide areas on the Barcelona map with a white " * " If you keep your mouse pointer stationary for a few seconds over one of these areas a small dialogue box will open describing the photo guide in that area. If you wish to see the photo guide just click on the area and you'll be taken to the photo guide for that part of the town.
