Most people visiting Barcelona will have two things on the agenda, the Sagrada Familia and Parc Guell; Gaudi’s best known works. The Sagrada Familia is a stunning cathedral equal distance from the mountains and sea in Barcelona and designed with nature at the forefront. The columns inside soar up like tree trunks, and the white interior contrasts with the bright stain glassed windows to create an ethereal ambience. You have to pay to enter the cathedral, and it’s well worth it, as you’ll have an audio guide to show you around the highlights. You can also take the lift up to the towers and look out over the city. Parc Guell in contrast is free to enter and a great place to go with a loved one or the whole family. Stroll around the gardens, admire the mosaic style sculptures and then find a quiet spot to enjoy a picnic.

Barcelona is a melting pot of culture, and a great place to try some first class international cuisine. However, it would be rude not to sample some of the local delicacies during your stay! The tortilla is an omelette like no other, so tall you’ll be served it in a thick wedge like a slice of cake and the perfect snack to fill you up. Head to la boqueria food market just off la rambla where you can sit down at one of the authentic tapas bars and enjoy a slice of tortilla accompanied with the traditional Catalan tomato bread. Another speciality here is crema catalana, a desert similar to the French crème brulee which you’ll no doubt see on offer at most restaurants.
