Barcelona, with its agreeable Mediterranean climate all through the year, is the second largest city in the Catalonia region of Spain. For an historical context, it has been the place where various cultures from all different directions met and mixed to cultivate the inspiration for the unique and outstanding talents of geniuses such as Pablo Picasso and Antoni Gaudi. Instantly recognizable is the name of ‘Sagrada Familia’ as one of the ‘Works of A. Gaudi’ registered by UNESCO’s World Heritage. The heart of the city consists of many architectural wonders, some a bit peculiar but very authentic décor. Hotel El Palace, the venue for our next awarding stands at the corner of those historic areas, showing its stately pile.
