The best places and cities to visit in Spain
Spain’s second largest city captivates with a delightful mix of sun-drenched Mediterranean beaches and extraordinary architecture. Barcelona’s star cultural attraction is the Sagrada Familia, the eye-popping basilica designed by Spanish architect Antoni Gaudi, the master of Catalan Modernism. A long tree-lined promenade called La Rambla leads to the Plaza de Cataluna, a large square in the center of the city known for its statues, monuments and fountains. With its newly revamped waterfront, the popular Bareloneta Beach offers visitors a gorgeous setting for a relaxing day in the sun.
