Barcelona is a fantastic coastal city full of culture, amazing architecture, and a world-renowned bar and restaurant scene. This city is one of the best places in the world to get intentionally lost, ditching the tour guides and attraction maps to experience Barcelona on your own terms. Be sure to see the whimsical architecture of Antoni Gaudi, like the Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila, and Casa Batllo. Take yourself on a tapas crawl in Placa Reial and the Ramblas, sampling local cuisine and drinks as you go.
Make your way to Park Guell, an incredible park full of unique architecture, colorful mosaic, and great views of the city. The vibrance and historical significance of Guell are what make this park a shining example of Catalan culture. At the end of a long day exploring Barcelona, head down to Bogatell beach (less crowded than Barceloneta) to sip on a cold beer from one of the beach bars while taking in a gorgeous Catalan sunset.
