Barcelona is the quintessential city-break destination. It has many boutique hotels and comfortable guest houses, and the nightlife is legendary.
Tapas is a great start to the evening – sharing dishes of grilled sardines or spicy sausages. The Spanish way is to drift between bars enjoying a glass of wine here and there, soaking up the atmosphere. Barcelona’s most famous building is, without a doubt, Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia Basilica. Its stone forms seem to twist and turn. But that is only the beginning of Barcelona’s architectural riches. There are hundreds of buildings worth seeing. You can take an organized tour, or just stroll and look up.
