Fanciful and sophisticated, Barcelona casts a spell over the most jaded traveller the minute they leave the airport. The Catalan passion is infused into everything in this magical city.
The architecture: A stroll around the city to admire its wealth of modernist architecture is a must on any trip to Barcelona. Playful and strange, Antoni Gaudí’s creations in particular, like the Sagrada Família, Park Güell, La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, are not to be missed.
Barri Gòtic: Barcelona’s Gothic Old Town. Explore maze-like alleyways, hidden courtyards and atmospheric cafés, shops and restaurants in this throwback to medieval and Roman times.
Picasso: He was almost as well-known for his anguished love affairs as for his art. Absorb some of that passion by touring the city of his youth as he might have experienced it. Visit number 3 C/Mercè, where his family lived, before heading to Els 4 Gats, where artists like him and Dalí discussed their craft. Finally, check out the Museu Picasso itself.
