Barcelona's unique and eclectic style makes it one of the most popular European destinations. Gaudi's structures all over the city offer a modern version of the many Gothic constructions that have stood in Barcelona for centuries, and grandiose neo-classical buildings seamlessly merge into medieval quarters.
Whatever it is that you look for in a trip, Barcelona has it in abundance. From beaches to museums, cathedrals to nightclubs and wacky parks to fusion restaurants, Spain's second city is the country's capital of tourism for a reason.
Don't leave without getting a caricature of yourself painted on Las Ramblas or trying the seafood in Port Vell. Turn out to see Gaudi's Sagrada Familia cathedral being constructed and take in the sunset from the top of Mount Montjuïc and you will fall in love with Barcelona for the rest of your life.
