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!
