One of the biggest and most vibrant cities in Europe, Barcelona is a holiday destination par excellence. Soft golden sand beaches are perfect for families or those who just want to lie back and soak up the sun. The lively harbour is full of great cafes and intriguing little shops, and you'll find high-end fashion boutiques in the city centre. At night, its famous bar and tapas culture makes everyone feel welcome with live music and delicious food and drink.
Barcelona's architecture is admired worldwide, with buildings like Sagrada Familia, the Casa Batllo, the Casa Mila and the Palau de la Musica Catalana all declared World Heritage Sites. You don't need to visit the galleries to see world class art, but can simply take a stroll through the Park Guell, which was designed by Gaudi. With impressive museums to explore as well, the one thing you won't have is enough time to see everything.
