Things to Do in Barcelona
With a status as one of the world's major global cities, Barcelona is a hotspot for entertainment, attractions and architecture. Take a tour of one of the quirky houses Gaudi built, go shopping on Las Ramblas or catch a thrilling soccer match at Camp Nou, home of world-class FC Barcelona. The most famous Gaudi masterpieces are the Sagrada Familia, Park Güell and La Pedrera. Art lovers won't want to miss the Fundació Joan Miró, a museum that houses a giant collection of paintings by the Spanish surrealist painter. Later, when you climb the Montjuïic Mountain, you'll have stunning views of the city as well as buildings from the 1992 Olympic Games.
Barcelona is also a culinary capital. Dig into pintxos, which are essentially Basque tapas, or devour real tapas accompanied by a good vermouth. After eating, you'll quickly learn that Barcelona never sleeps. The city has an invigorating electronic music scene that brings in the world's top DJs. That's in addition to the wonderful concerts halls, including Gran Teatre del Liceu, L'Auditori and Palau de la Música Catalana.
