Where are we from? (III)

Our town is next to Barcelona, the capital city of Catalonia. It is sorrounded by the Mediterranean sea and the Collserola mountains. Barcelona was founded by the Romans who called it ‘’Barcino’’ in the 1st century BC.

One of the most popular landmarks in Barcelona is the “Sagrada Família”, which is an Art Déco church designed by Antoni Gaudí. He was a very important architect and he also built “La Pedrera” and “Casa Batlló”, two very important and lovely buildings, as well as “Park Güell”.

There are two important football teams in Barcelona: Royal Sport Club Espanyol and Barcelona Football Club, but we call it simply Barça. Barcelona Football Club’s stadium is called “Camp Nou” which means “New Stadium”. Barça has won twenty-two Spanish leagues and four Champions Leagues.
