Full of history of innovative spirit, this walkable Mediterranean city is all about work-life balance. Catalans love to work almost as much as they love to play, and, around town, visitors will find restaurants, cafés, and theaters packed with a mix of locals, expats, and tourists. The weather is mild enough for palm trees and droves of parrots, and there are loads of experiences for travelers-outdoors enthusiasts, shoppers, foodies, and art aficionados.
