Barcelona

Barcelona

Fanciful architecture and hip restaurants have come together with the sunny southern Spanish climate and beaches. This has transformed Barcelona in just a few decades from a rough port city to one of Europe’s—if not the world’s—premier destinations. Stroll along La Rambla, admire the Casa Calvet’s façade or the Casa Mila designed by Gaudi, visit the Market of la Boqueria or shop at El Corte Inglés, and sample some of the many bars, cafés and late night haunts while you’re at it.

La Sagrada Família

Antoni Gaudi's ambitious project remains, as of today, unfinished, which by no means takes away from its popularity - at nearly 3 million yearly visitors, La Sagrada Familia is Spain's 2nd most visited monument. The masterpiece was crafted meticulously to embody the Christian faith through composition, sculpture, and individualistic, offbeat design. Guided and audio tours available.

Carrer d' Avinyó

Carrer d' Avinyó, in Barrí Gotic (the Gothic Quarter), is possibly Barcelona’s most interesting shopping street. Here you can find fun stores, including street fashion store Soda, Ángel Gimeno specialising in trendy shirts for men, and Loft Avignon, which caters to the more sophisticated lot. Herborista del Rei in the Gothic Quarter is the best choice for herbs and spices.
