Look out for Antoni Gaudi’s belatedly head turning ‘work in progress’ La Sagrada Familia, the skeletal Casa Batllo, the outer worldly Parc Guell and much more besides. Unrivalled in architectural magnificence, Barcelona offers an abundance of unique styles from medieval to art nouveau many of which have been declared World Heritage sites.
Barcelona can equal any European city when it comes to culture. Music venues and theatres are peppered across the city each offering their own unique style of entertainment.

For art, the choices are plentiful too like the Fundacio Joan Miro, Picasso Museu and the flamboyantly decked Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.
Thanks to the good old low cost airlines, a weekend break to one of Europe’s top city break destinations doesn’t need to cost a fortune!
