The european capital of partying is a city of many colors, since it has also other places to visit aside from the parties and clubs. With its many excellent restaurants, the city is also the perfect place to enjoy the mediterranean gastronomy and customs. Also, the city is a great gate to the rest of the island, also a great place to visit overall in our trip to Spain, though many of the residents of the island advise to rent a vehicle, car or bike, to travel around the island more freely, since the public transport isn’t very good.
The second most populated city of Spain, only surpassed by the capital city of Madrid, and one of the most populated cities in the European Union. The catalan capital offers events and places to visit for all tastes and ages, from the city’s beaches, the different museums and the variety of iconic monuments of the city (Sagrada Família, The Güell Park, The Pedrera, The Universal Forum of the Cultures, etc.).
