Welcome to Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona is a banquet for all the senses, though perhaps mainly for sight. Not far behind are the pleasures of the palate. The air temperature is almost always about right, more and more streets are pedestrianized, and tavern after tavern burrows elegantly into medieval walls. Every now and then the fragrance of the sea in the port or in Barceloneta reminds you that this is, after all, a giant seaport and beach city, with an ancient Mediterranean tradition that is, at the outset of its third millennium, flourishing—and bewitching visitors as it has for centuries. Today new architecture and design—including some of Europe's hottest new fashions in hip boutiques—provide the city with an exciting effervescent edge. Explore

Roam Las Ramblas

La Sagrada Familia

Still unfinished, this church is the magnum opus of Antoni Gaudi, the eccentric star of architecture’s Modernista movement of the late 1800s.

Linger in Park Guell

Another Gaudi masterwork: a hilltop park with serpentine benches, fountains and pagodas covered in colorful mosaic tiles.

Get Lost in the Barri Gotic

Winding streets and quiet squares take you back to medieval Barcelona. Look for the tiny Museu del Calçat, devoted to the history of shoes.
