On Spain's coast, Barcelona is its second largest city and the capital of Catalonia, a proud and borderline secessionist region of Spain. Most signs in Barcelona are in Spanish and Catalan, and you will find the odd barkeep who does not take kindly to your pidgin (or fluent) Spanish. Barcelona is famous for the proliferation of Gaudi's architecture, particularly the still-in-construction cathedral the Sagrada Familia, a mad mix of Gothic and art nouveau sttyles with a nod to mother nature, and Park Guell, a sculpted surrealist park atop the city. The Gothic district (Barri Gotic) is the old center, with historic architecture and small winding streets. For the sporty, there is FC Barcelona, one of Europe's better soccer teams. The Picasso Museum has a strong collection of the artist's works, as does the Dali Museum. It's also a city you can visit multiple times without tiring.

One of my favorite cities in the world. There is so much to do from visiting the olympic stadiums, hitting the beaches, and exploring all the marvels and museums the city has to offer. A place you must visit in your life time

Barcelona is a really fun place. Good food, stunning architecture, rich culture, pleasant weather and most of all, highly affordable. Is there a bad time to visit? I don't think so.

I saw the Mediterranean for the first time as the overnight train from Granada pulled into the station. Barcelona was highly touted by every guidebook and most people I knew who had been to Spain. The Olympics were held here when I was 13. Unfortunately I belong to that minority of travelers who prefer Madrid. Perhaps if I had seen the two in reverse order... I enjoyed going to the beach every day. The water was as warm as a bathtub. By night, though, I felt uncomfortable walking down Las Ramblas as the prostitutes are particularly aggressive with their groping and catcalls.

Romantic and vivacious at any time of the year, the capital of Catalonia has something to offer everyone - a rich vibrant history, the warm waters of the Mediterranean and night life that doesn't let up till dawn (and sometimes it doesn't even stop then!) There's the architectural wonders of their hometown hero too - Antonio Gaudi (if all the aforementioned wasn't enough). No bout a doubt it, Barcelona is one of the world's great cities.

Barcelona is an amazingly alive city. Everything seems to be happening all the time. People are out and about at all hours of the day and night and there is always something to do. The food is incredible, the people are funny and friendly... and a little fresh. The sites are wonders to behold - especially the unique architectural details of Antoni Gaudi that can be found all over the city.

Though I was only on the ground for 48 hours, I loved every minute spent in this sun-drenched city. I believe that I could spend the rest of my days lounging at a cafe on Las Ramblas with a cerveza and be perfectly happy.

This bohemian, art-filled city is on almost everyone's must-do itinerary in Spain, and for good reason. Spend your days at museums and exploring the modernist architecture of Gaudi and others, then dive into the nightlife of tapas bars, live-music cafes and more.

Great City for a weekend break. Stroll through Raval or the Gothic Quarter, relax on the city beach and have a sundowner on Tibidabo Mountain. Barcelona has much to offer!
