Barcelona, the colourful capital of Catalonia, is where sport, history and culture course through the veins of the locals. The city where every building appears like an artwork, every open space is a canvas and where passion is painted with pride in the red and yellow stripes that adorn the regional flag. This is Barcelona – an avant-garde city always on the move and you’re invited to tag along.
Artists have thrived in the city for centuries, and one of the most influential people to have left a mark on its appearance is undoubtedly local boy, Antoni Gaudi, so much so in fact that his works have collectively been accepted as a UNESCO Heritage Site. Next to the restaurants and tapas bars of La Rambla, you’ll find the first of Gaudi’s masterpieces. The Palau Güell rises majestically from a rather non-descript street, and behind the cast-iron gates, you can discover its truly awe-inspiring palatial splendour. Heading further north you’ll come to two of Gaudi’s most famous buildings. First the Casa Batlló, with its surreal façade of egg-shaped windows and wave-like features, and next, the truly magnificent, albeit still unfinished, Sagrada Familia. With its steep spires, gargoyles and sheer size, this Catalan jewel is guaranteed to take your breath away. Complete the Gaudi-tour by making your way to the Park Güell. With panoramic views of the city, colourful, mosaic-like architecture and greenery, it’s a delightful place of rest away from the urban bustle. Regardless of which direction you go in, in the city, you are never far from something truly stunning. The city is full of castles, museums, quirky restaurants, trendy bars, theatres, churches and just generally lots of great things to see and do.
