Barcelona profits from Olympic summerBarcelona is just one of the European capitals that is benefitting from the Olympics in London, a recent study has suggested.

As well as proving consistently popular amongst Britons and foreign tourists, officials in Barcelona have just reported a 100 per cent rise in tourist numbers over the summer.

It is thought that the expected hustle and bustle of the UK capital during one of the biggest shows on earth will be too much for some Londoners and foreign holidaymakers.

Renowned for its beautiful architectural buildings and stunning Catalan culture, the news comes after it was revealed in a further poll that Barcelona is one of the world’s most loved destinations.

Why not investigate this European gem for yourself and combine a trip to the Catalonian capital with a stay in one of the fine Barcelona hotels? A short break to the city could be the perfect escape from the trappings of your professional life.
