In its mythical and colorful streets, you will encounter flower sellers, spectacles, painters, musicians, giant statues, and, everywhere, astounding restaurants and bars. The tapas bar, a Barcelona institution, presents perfect opportunities to share a convivial meal with locals at any time of the day. Lose yourself in the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, one of the most popular areas of the city, among the amazing medieval buildings. Be sure to bask in Gaudí's Park Güell, with its incomparable architecture, and the majestic Sagrada Familia, a major example of Catalan Modernism. Visit the many museums, such as those dedicated to Joan Miró and Pablo Picasso, to discover more about the historical heritage of the city. Stroll on the huge sunny beach of Barcelonata after a gourmet visit to the Boqueria Market, one of the most emblematic markets in Spain. A sleepless, ever-restless city, Barcelona blazes day and night, and never tires. A popular destination for night-time revellers, it is a party town par excellence.
