Barcelona – 01
Skip to review content
One of the Mediterranean’s most vibrant cities, Barcelona is a heady mix of art and history, business and commerce, combining a busy waterfront with a historic Gothic quarter and wide, sunlit boulevards. Fiercely proud of its status as the capital of Catalonia, each barrio (neighbourhood) has its own character, from the newly hip (if still a little gritty) El Raval, dotted with pintxo bars and boutiques, to the beachfront lounges in Barceloneta, the elegant streets of Gracia and historic El Born with its 19th-century market. Few cities pull off the city-plus-beach combination with such élan – pack glam frocks and kaftans.
