Its patchwork of architectural styles displays dark, Gothic façades next to the harlequin buildings of the Modernistas and the skyline-piercing constructions of Jean Nouvel or Herzog and de Meuron.
A day spent admiring them can be topped off with a sun downer on one of the city’s many beaches before dinner at any number of Michelin-starred gastronomic temples or humble, family-run tapas bars.
This is a city with a proud sense of identity and its language, culture and traditional festivals are fiercely guarded.

What kind of food is Barcelona known for?? We can´t forget about the food when talking about things Barcelona Is famous for. In Barcelona and in the whole Catalonia region you can find one of the most delicious gastronomy in Spain!
The delicious bread with tomato or better called “Pan tumaca” is one of the best things you can try. It´s normally served during breakfast but it is that good that we could eat it at any time of the day. Other famous dishes tourists would eat on a trip to Barcelona would be the Fuet or the typical Crema Catalana as a dessert.
When you first arrive in Spain, you might have paella on your mind. As you know—that delicious rice dish cooked in a giant cast iron skillet and topped with a variety of seafood and meat.
But, there are SO many other delicious foods to try in Spain!…
Did you know that the third Thursday of June is World Tapas Day? I’m not sure who makes up these days…but I want to be part of that team! I’m all for getting festive, so naturally, the only way to celebrate is by tasting all the tapas!
The Spaniards have mastered the way of bitesize meals. Whether that stems from eating dinner late, taking mid-day siestas, or simply wanting to sample a smattering of dishes: tapas are where it’s at!
Along with the ham, you’ll find tomato and olive oil…sometimes it’s served atop bread, other times it’s more like a charcuterie spread!
The best places to find good tapas are in tapas streets or neighborhoods—with several different tapas bars or taverns around each other.
For an authentic experience, look for a bar with locals! Avoid ones labeled “tapas bar” and those with English menus.
Lastly, order your drink before you order your tapas!

Flamenco is one of the most iconic forms of dance in the world, and as it originated in Spain, it is no surprise to find that it is a key part of the country’s culture.
Barcelona has a range of venues that offer Flamenco shows with a traditional Spanish dinner, and this is a great way to enjoy some festive dancing and some good food at the same time.

Sunny Costa Brava
The Costa Brava is a diverse region with exceptional natural beauty!
Stretching north from Barcelona to the Spanish–French border, the Costa Brava ('rugged coast') is undoubtedly the most beautiful of Spain's three main holiday coasts.
Though there's plenty of tourism development, this wonderfully scenic region of Catalonia also unveils unspoiled coves, spectacular seascapes, wind-battered headlands, coast-hugging hiking paths, charming seaside towns with outstanding restaurants, and some of Spain's finest diving around the protected Illes Medes.
Delightful stone villages and the majestic Romanesque monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes nestle in the hilly backcountry, cloaked in the south in brilliant-green umbrella pine. Inland, wander northern Catalonia's biggest city, Girona, home to a moodily atmospheric, strikingly well-preserved medieval centre and one of the world's top restaurants.
Neighbouring Figueres is famed for its bizarre Teatre-Museu Dalí, foremost of a series of sites associated with eccentric surrealist artist Salvador Dalí, who fell, like many others, for the wild natural beauty of seaside Cadaqués.
Few areas can compare to the Costa Brava when it comes to idyllic bathing spots close to hand. You'll find beaches that are surprisingly untouched and others that delicately balance urbanism and the landscape, along with many that are very popular but never get so crowded you can't even find a place for your towel.

When it comes to nightlife in most parts of the world, there’s usually a straight choice between a city vibe or the beach. But in the Costa Brava, you get the best of both worlds. For sundowners with spectacular sunsets, you’ll find seafront terrace bars with phenomenal views.
Tucked away down one of the town’s many winding alleys, in an old townhouse with cellar-like stone arches, you'll find the walled garden of C-roack with its hanging lanterns. This is the perfect place for a nightcap. Inside there’s a small but quirky bar with a good selection of spirits and vintage radios on shelves and old paintings and advertising hoardings on the walls.
