There is so much history in Barcelona just waiting to be explored. I love a city where I can just stroll the streets popping into shops, stopping for a bite here and there, all while enjoying the architecture. I personally love historic architecture, massive buildings and public squares.

What’s interesting about Barcelona is that there is a fascinating mix of architectural styles from the traditional European to much more modern and imaginative styles inspired by famed artists such as Gaudi.

Barcelona is definitely a walking city so pack a comfortable pair of shoes! There are so many interesting parks and streets to be explored with plenty of photo opportunities to be had.

One of my favorite things about Barcelona had to be the food! There are countless tapas bars, gourmet restaurants, small family restaurants cooking up paella with freshly caught seafood and of course local favourites like churros!

If you are looking to try a variety of Catalan and Spanish foods as well as other international specialties, be sure to stop at La Boqueria.

I am a huge fan of watching Rick Steves’ Europe on PBS before I visit a city and as a huge fan of the show, I was so excited to see this local legend at La Boqueria! If you’d like to meet him or enjoy some tapas at the market, then you’ll want to visit Pinotxo Bar.
