Barcelona’s atmosphere is about the only thing that can beat its fantastic food, beaches and architecture

Spain, Barcelona.

Watch an FC Barcelona game on the television and you’ll get what the city itself is all about: exciting, stylish, energetic – and leaving you with a great big smile on your face afterwards. From its picture-perfect beaches and incredible cuisine to the wonderful architecture and world-class museums and art galleries, Barcelona is the perfect city break destination. The visionary genius of Antoni Gaudí is ever-present in the city, from the magnificent Sagrada Familia to the plush Park Güell. However, it's at night when the city really comes to life. Locals and visitors descend on the Gothic Quarter and elsewhere to drink wine, eat tapas and talk their way through to the early hours of the morning, before dancing whatever is rest of the night away in a nightclub or jazz cafe.
