Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain after Madrid and the capital of Catalonia and is home to one of the most famous boulevards in the world - La Rambla. This mile long road bustles with tourists, artists, human statues, fortune-tellers, dancers and musicians. Vibrant flower stalls, a cultural and exhibition centre, the superb La Boqueria market, a Joan Miró mosaic, newspaper kiosks and cafés line the street.
The Segrada Familia, one of Gaudi’s works is both breathtaking and grotesque - At first glance, it seems as like melting wax had been dripped over a Gothic cathedral, but a closer look reveals that a stone tapestry of Christ's life. Park Güell is a magical place that emulates an English garden city. After seeing the gatehouses, based on designs for the opera Hansel and Gretel, you can walk up a splendid staircase, past a mosaic lizard to what once was a marketplace. Outside, climb to the heights of the park to gaze down at the magnificent panorama.
