Barcelona has emerged as one of Europe’s most popular tourist destinations, and it’s not hard to see why. With a stunning diversity of architecture, from the medieval of the Barrio Gótico to the Modernism of Antonio Gaudí, works from artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg on street corners, world class museums and galleries, and music festivals such as The Festival del Grec every June, the city has a wealth of culture to offer its visitors. It is divided into different barrios, all of which are completely individual and are perfectly spaced to explore on foot. Barcelona is enjoying a culinary renaissance, too, and boasts some of the most inventive cuisine in the world. Go here to drink wine in lively bars, savour the taste of Spain in traditional tapas restaurants, and soak up the atmosphere of this vibrant and cosmopolitan Catalan city.

Casa Macaya, Barcelona, Spain. Declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest, the Macaya house was finished in 1901. The architect, Josep Puig i Cadafalch, revived the grandiose of the Gothic style with his design of the facade. Arches & columns are intricately carved & decorated by ironwork next to white stucco walls with elaborately engraved designs.
Casa Batlló is a building restored by Antoni Gaudí in 1904-1906. The building looks very remarkable — like everything Gaudí designed. The local name for the building is Casa dels ossos (House of Bones). Much of the façade is decorated with a mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles (trencadís) that starts in shades of golden orange moving into greenish blues.
