Vivacious, ambitious, industrious: Barcelona is second to none

This cool, cosmopolitan metropolis is the bastion of Catalan nationalism and one of the greatest port cities on the Mediterranean. Barcelona’s distinct culture finds exuberant expression in its architecture – in the sinuous swirls of its Modernista buildings, in the other-worldly weirdness of Park Güell and in the soaring spires of the Sagrada Família. A stroll along the Rambla, Barcelona’s famed promenade, reveals a city of irrepressible energy and a proud and unique identity.

The world's most breath-taking building site Editors' Note

Under construction for well over 120 years, Barcelona’s most iconic building is still nowhere near completion. Modernista legend Antonio Gaudí played a key role in the design of the Sagrada Família in the Eixample district.

Sagrada Família is a mishmash of styles with Gaudí’s apse, with its organic detail and flowing, molten forms, regarded as the most beautiful. The great architect is buried beneath the nave and work continues on realising his vision.
