Barcelona has an unrivalled brilliance in architecture and culture. Being culture and architecture vultures, my company and I extremely enjoyed the distinguishable Antonio Gaudi’s architectural works. We could do nothing else but marvel at the extremely ambitious dream manifested by Sagrada Familia; the incomplete yet large Basilica prides itself with enormous amounts of detail. Along passeig de Gracia, we fed our eyes with the impressive design of La Pedresa and Cas Batllo. A park designed by the hands and brains of the man himself-Antonio Gaudi was also our other marvel; given the name Parc Guell, this surely one place you should be. In our numerous rendezvous in the city, we met numerous other outstanding structures including the Gothic cathedral.

Museums, this one other aspect of Barcelona that will surely remain documented in my mental faculties. There are numerous museums in Barcelona that include the MACBA (museum of modern art) which hold full exhibitions monthly. Caixa Forum, another top class museum which I recommend to anyone wishing to view top class art exhibitions. Although ignored by many tourists, Placa Espanyol was free for us and most importantly it was great.

In Barcelona, we treated ourselves with great delicacies. Seafood and tapas is easily available at reasonable prices-Barceloneta is one such location where tapas and other types of sea food can be enjoyed. Although our holiday was a corporate one, I did not miss to note that the Limbo on Calbe Merce is a romantic and subtle location for couples to enjoy great foods.

The zoo in Parc cistadella gave us an opportunity to take photos at the largest aquarium in Europe. Bars and clubs that can fit any taste are all over the city-weird ones to Irish bars. Barcelona is a city of variety, and this allows anyone here on holiday to at least find an interesting activity. For the appropriate place to stay, visit and make an informed choice.
