A city 400 years older than the ancient city of Rome, Barcelona has made a name for itself amongst architects thanks to the works you can find dotted around the city that were designed by the famous creator of masterpieces, Antoni Gaudi.
Aside from the architecture, Barcelona is just one of those unbeatably cool and atmospheric cities that you could just spend hours upon end discovering what's behind each street corner. Whilst walking down Las Ramblas, one of Europe's most renowned pedestrianised streets, you will feel a sense of the authentic Spanish energy, with street performers, open-plan tapas bars and a view of the sun setting on the gorgeous Barcelonian beach.
If you want to get a real sense of the Spanish spirit, book tickets to a match in Europe's largest football stadium, Camp Nou, to sit amongst 99,354 fans and collectively cheer on your favourite team.
