Architecture, cuisine, sports, and style buffs would be hard pressed to find another city as universally appealing as Barcelona. Vivacious and friendly citizens just make it all the more bueno.
- Stroll through the twists and turns of the maze-like Barri Gothic (Gothic Quarter) and marvel at the intricate, if sometimes a touch creepy, architectural details.
- Boy, the Spanish know how to live. Every day is a celebration at one of Barcelona's popular champagne bars where locals sip cava, the regional sparkling wine special.
- Brilliant architect Antoni Gaudi's crowning achievement, the Sagrada Familia church, is stunning, intricate, and nowhere near completion despite 125+ years of construction.
