Barcelona is one of Europe's favourite holiday destinations with magnificent architecture, a lively cultural scene and renowned food & nightlife. The Catalan architect Gaudí’s most famous landmarks in the city are the Sagrada Família church, park Guell, Parc de la Ciutadella & Cascada Fountain. City history museum Museu Picasso and Fundació Joan Miró featuring modern art are worth seeing too. 

The famous Las Ramblas street is home to Barcelona’s greatest opera, the Gran Teatre del Liceu, the Art Gallery at Centre d’Art Santa Monica, the spectacular Boqueria Market, Catalan flamenco clubs and  street performers dressed as fantastic creatures, well-known characters and personalities. The Columbus Monument with a viewing gallery at the top, stands at the end of Barcelona's Rambla, where it meets the sea.

A walking tour that will take you through Las Ramblas is a great way to experience it.
