THE CATALAN CAPITAL OF BARCELONA has masses of cultural fizz. Wander the winding medieval streets of the city’s Gothic quarter with its squares, fountains and churches. Join the crowds along the world-famous promenade of Las Ramblas, or take in the evening buzz along the waterfront – packed with bars and eateries.
Barcelona is imprinted with the stamp of Gaudi, whose architectural masterworks litter the city’s landscape. See his great unfinished cathedral Sagrada Familia, the extraordinary Casa Batllo house and the amazing stone structures of Guell park. See some of the city’s fabulous museums, or spend a lazy Sunday on Montjuic mountain, with its jogging trails and vistas.
