Don’t let another day go by without experiencing this modern, cosmopolitan and authentically Mediterranean city. Barcelona is a must-see for the world-famous architecture of Gaudí, and the charm of exploring the nooks and crannies of its Gothic quarter. Its cheerful, lively atmosphere is unique, and can be enjoyed at its best strolling along the Ramblas, beside the sea or in its city centre parks.

Shopping is a delight, with little hundred-year-old shops, top designer boutiques and luxury jewellers. Children have a great time here, discovering animals at the zoo and the aquarium, or enjoying parks like Tibidabo and Poble Espanyol.

It’s a gourmet’s dream, combining the healthy Mediterranean diet with the creative cooking of international award-winning chefs with restaurants in the city. And of course, Barcelona has spectacular sports, with Barça and its star players.
