Barcelona is a city rich in culture, with great nightlife, abundant sunshine and an incredible food scene. It can be busy in summer, but its architectural treasures by Gaudi are truly awe-inspiring. Don’t miss Park Guell or La Sagrada Familia – construction began in 1882 and the basilica is due for completion in 2026 (love to be in town for THAT party). Just wandering the streets of Barcelona is a delight, with tree-lined La Ramba a perfect place to start. Savour the tasty morsels you’ll find at the city’s many tapas bars and restaurants, or hit the beach and soak up the easygoing Barcelona vibe.
