Barcelona ©
Barcelona, the country’s second-largest city, is a cosmopolitan urban center known for its throbbing youthful energy and stellar architecture.
Appreciate the collections at CosmoCaixa Barcelona and Casa Mila - La Pedrera. Head to La Boqueria and En construcciofor plenty of shopping. Change things up with these side-trips from Barcelona: Vila Vella (Old Town) (in Tossa de Mar), Tarragona (Anfiteatro de Tarragona & Circ Roma) and Girona Cathedral (Catedral) (in Girona). There's still lots to do: appreciate the history behind Casa Batllo, admire the local landmark of Illuminated Fountain, wander the streets of El Barri Gòtic, and pause for some serene contemplation at Templo del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus.
