With its breathtaking, dramatic architecture, and vivacious culture, Barcelona is as much a living canvas of art as it is a brilliant city. Artistry is evident in everything throughout the Catalan capital, from the awe-inspiring, modernist buildings in the Manzana de La Discòrdia district to the dazzling dishes being served in the many Michelin-starred restaurants. The city combines timeless appeal with modern allure, and there are plenty of amazing experiences you’ll want to add to your Barcelona bucket list. Marvel at the sparkling spires of the unfinished La Sagrada Familia, and feast your eyes on the collection of whimsical sculptures, colonnades, and walkways in Gaudí’s Parc Güell. Listen as operatic scores reverberate through the brilliant venue of the Palau de La Música Catalana, or snack on tapas as you hop through cafes and bars in Las Ramblas. Whether you want to soak up culture at the Museum of Contemporary Art, or sunshine at the beach, Barcelona is an amazing destination to explore. Choose a unique accommodation for your holiday in this one-of-a-kind city, and check out this list of Airbnb houseboats, yachts, and boats!
