Barcelona Movie

Barcelona Movie is a new web, that will serve to give relevance to certain locations of Barcelona that still are not tourist icons.
The idea is that the tourists organizes the visit to the city from a cinematographic point of view, crossing the scenes where diverse rolled films was success in Barcelona.

Barcelona movies

The web Barcelona Movie, is to discover the city since the cinema, so that the person who consults the Web finds the relation of the scenes and its location in a plane of the city, as well as complementary information of Barcelona.

Almodovar BarcelonaFor example, now you can find Almodóvar‘s scenes in Barcelona (“All About My Mother”) :  Monument a Colom, Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Família, Palau de la Música Catalana. 

The scenes of “The Perfume” in Barcelona of Tom Tykwer, “Erasmus Students’ Barcelona” of Cédric Klapisch, also Giovanni Veronesi, Peter Greenaway, Alejandro Amenabar, Fernando Trueba, Michelangelo Antonioni, who are some of the directors who have used the city as a location for their films.

Sure, is a good idea!

Valentine’s Day Barcelona

valentine’s day barcelonaValentine’s Day is a special celebration, as you know, on February 14.

Generally, the lovers express their love sending presents, flowers, swets, and some of them, going to special site in the night. 

In this order, we can suggest you a good thing to enjoy with your lover (if you remember an love ABBA):

  • The Barcelona Teatre Musical is now showing the Catherine Johnson musical with the ABBA songs we all know, like Dancing Queen, Chiquitita, Voulez-Vous and Take A Chance On Me. (C Guàrdia Urbana, 7 – Sants-Montjuïc)

But while I’ve been looking for special activities for this day, I saw an interesting article in ABC, in which TERESA DE LA CIERVA, MARTA BARROSO, PATRICIA ESPINOSA DE LOS MONTEROS talks about a study of the Valentine’s day traditions:

 “The fragrances and the oils for the bath, among other products of beauty, do not fail, but either the romantic escapes. According to the study of Expedia, the best thing to reinforce a relation is a trip; that said 61% of the people at least. 41% of the women (always more positive) thinks that it helps to recover “the flame” (39% declare that when finalizing a trip has returned to fall in love with its pair), and the men, (“always so optimistic”), consider that “he is not going to suppose no change” (42%)… What yes it is certain is that it does not solve a crisis (only 6% take advantage of it to solve problems). One of the tactically important points is the planning of the trip. Women (36%) gives to much more importance him to the details whereas to them (23%) she costs to them more to put itself in agreement on the budget…”

What do you think about this study? And what you prefeer your lover do tomorrow?

Why is a good one idea an apartment?
– If you travel with the family, it is a good way to share the trip with a familiar privacity. Apartments provide more space than average hotel rooms.
– Habitually, apartments are cheaper than hotels.
– It is a good way to know the city, we can get a better feel for Barcelona, as natives know it.
If we talk about Barcelona apartments, we suggest you Rent the sun, a Web in which we can find a special list of apartments to rent, so near of the main attractions of the city.
