Barcelona

Barcelona, SpainEmbrace Catalan culture in Spain's second largest city! If you're seeking some sun on your city break but want a trip not too far from home, Barcelona has your name on it! Distinctive architecture can be found across Barcelona including the Gothic Quarter, La Sagrada Familia - arguably Gaudí's the most impressive architectural feat, Parc Güell and the famous Casa Mila. Noticeably, experiences in Barcelona are heavily influenced by Catalan culture, cuisine and language, therefore your time in Barcelona can make it feel completely distant from Spanish influence.
