Barcelona is Spain's most exciting and diverse city.
It would be (almost) a criminal offense to visit Barcelona and not take a look at its art and architecture, from the incredible Gaudi pieces, such as the Sagrada Familia Cathedral and the beautiful mosaic designs in Parc Guell, through to the Picasso Museum, which display some of his greatest works. Meanwhile, other top activities include exploring the city's varied quarters such as the enigmatic Gothic quarter and the winding alleys of El Born, relaxing on Barceloneta beach and tapas-bar-hopping to your heart's content. The city is also known for its amazing nightlife, with many clubs not kicking off until around 2 am, so be sure to take a Spanish-style siesta to help you power through.
The most popular area for tourists to stay in is on La Rambla, which is a large, leafy street that runs through the heart of Barcelona to the port. It's near many of the top sights and historic quarters and has great access to the metro. If you want a more local experience, stay in La Raval, which has cheaper accommodations options and isn't overrun with tourists. It's just a short walk away from La Rambla and also has great access to public transportation.
The best time to visit Barcelona is in the spring (April-May) or the autumn (September-October). During the summer months (July-August) the city is hot and packed with tourists.
