There's nothing that can replace the experience of being there—in situ, you immediately understand the beautiful interplay between the art and architecture of Antoni Gaudí and the lively culture & stunning surroundings in Barcelona. It's a city with a history dating to the Roman period, but one that never fails to feel hip, along the edge of the Balearic Sea.

Barcelona Cathedral

Make sure you take time to visit the Barcelona Cathedral in the Barri Gotic if you are visiting Barcelona. Built in the 13th century it sits right along the old Roman Wall and aqueduct. It costs 6 Euro to visit. It is really a beautiful cathedral and worth a visit. For me the ironwork really made me feel like I was in Spain.
