Barcelona is an exchanting seaside city with boundless culture, fabled architecture and a world-class drinking and dining scene. Barcelona contains both the authentically historic and the wildly bizarre. From the scenic trails of the colorful Park Güell to the romantic narrow alleys of the Gothic Quarter; from the beachside nightclubs to the city's dozens of sacred churches and architectural marvels, this city by the sea has endless things to do.
In Barcelona ,even the beach is bustling, but it's really the cosmopolitan city that gets all the attention. Much of the activity revolves around Las Ramblas, a series of narrow streets and alleys packed with restaurants, nightclubs and a vibrant pedestrian market. But you should also take a tour of Antoni Gaudí's masterpieces; Gaudí is responsible for sites like Casa Milà, Casa Batlló and La Sagrada Familia. You also shouldn't miss out on the eclectic shopping scene and the region's exquisite food and wine.
