What to do
Barcelona, the cosmopolitan capital of Spain’s Catalonia region, and arguably the most cosmopolitan city in the country, is defined by quirky art and architecture, imaginative food, sandy beaches and vibrant street life.
It has medieval roots, as seen in the maze-like Gothic Quarter, but a modernist personality represented by architect Antoni Gaudí’s fantastical works, predominantly the world-famous Sagrada Família.
A calming contrast to the kinetic energy of the city, Montjuïc hill; the Olympic Park with its stunning panoramic views of the city; the sleek harbour, seafront and thronging beaches; and the beautiful, authentically Barcelonan, tree-lined La Rambla are also all justifiably on visitors’ sightseeing itineraries.
