The imposing facade and the bell tower of this cathedral may seem Gothic, but in fact, it
dates from the nineteenth century.Behind the cathedral, in the first chapel, is the grave
of Ramon d'Escal Count of Barcelona, sculpted by Antoni Canetin in 1409. Not less
than 29 side chapels are bordering the nave and the apse, almost each of them with an
interesting piece of altar. Here is the great "Capella del Santissim Sagrament", whose
crucifix dates from the sixteenth century.Around this crucifix there are a lot of
legends.One of them says that the crucifix was worn on the ship of Don Juan of Austria
in the Battle of Lepanto.

The Arch of Triumph

The Arch of Triumph in Barcelona is a triumphal arch built from colored brick in Mudejar
style - a specific Moorish architectural style.The Arch, designed by the Catalan architect
Josep Vilaseca, is decorated with a large number of statues and bas reliefs.The unique
Arch of Triumph from Barcelona was built for the Universal Exposition in the 1888,
which took place in Parc de la Ciutadella.The Arch of Triumph located at the end of a
wide promenade, served as the main entrance to the exhibition.

Casa Batllo
This is another Gaudi's architectural masterpiece dating from 1905, Casa Batlló is
located on the same avenue as La Pedrera. The house is open to the public, and the
façade is remarkable by the absence of straight lines and corners. This house is
designed to represent the legend of Saint George (patron of Catalonia).The balconies
are protected by skulls and bones 
similar to the vertebral column, which represents victims of the dragon. The roof is like
the dragon's hunched back .Casa Batlo was and is definitely a major historical attraction
of Barcelona.

Mayor Synagogue

One of the oldest synagogues in Europe is located in the center of Barcelona, in the old
Jewish district, and it is known as the Mayor Synagogue . For centuries this place of
worship has been used for various purposes, but it was closely related to the bloodiest
day in the history of the Jewish community in Barcelona - August 5, 1931, when they
were killed.It seems that this year, the Mayor Synagogue was a tourist attraction visited
by many people.

Considerations when thinking about opening a coffee shop

Opening a coffee shop is a "classic" business idea that is successful across the globe.
The big cities and tourist areas are full of cafes that have been running for many years,
and that's why it's one of the business ideas that go through the head of the vast
majority of those who dream of starting a small business. But in business, nothing is
simple, and although it is a business idea that theoretically has great chances to
succeed, many people know that there is also a problem: competition! The battle to win
coffee lovers goes on several levels, including classic cafes, bars, restaurants, coffee
vending machines, or mini cafes that apply the Coffe 2 Go concept. So, do you want to
open a coffee shop? Here are some considerations when thinking about opening a
coffee shop! 
Regardless of the type of coffee shop you want to open, the first question you have to
ask yourself is if there is a proper market. If you want to have a café in a town of 10-15
thousand inhabitants where there are already 2 restaurants and 3 bars, you have to
think very well if it is worth investing your money in it. So the first step you need to do is
market analysis. Have you found a place with intense pedestrian traffic, especially in the
morning, where would you start your business? Is the price reasonable? If so,
depending on the available space, you can think of a classic café, or if the space is
small to one that offers "packed coffee" to hurried passers-by.

The second issue to consider is how much it costs to start the business. If you have
found a great location for opening a classic coffee shop, you should know that
nowadays clients are becoming more and more pretentious and if you open, like 20
years ago, a café with some simple wooden tables, you have no chance to succeed. To
be successful, you're forced to make a coffee shop more special than the rest, in which
case the setting and endowment of the café can cost you a lot. 

The next aspect to be considered is profitability. The goal of any business is to make
profit, and the bigger it is, the better for the business owner. In a "classic" business, the
rule is simple: large investments bring high profits and small investments bring small
profits. Of course the statement is true only if the market analysis has been done
correctly and the employees are in line with the expectations of the clients.

Conclusion: If you're thinking about opening a coffee shop, choosing your business
model depends on the potential of the market, the money you can invest, and of course
the managerial abilities. Invest your money according to the results of your analysis and
good luck!
