It is the ideal city to discover historic monuments and Barcelonas historic centre has a bohemian atmosphere which you discover as you walk through the Gothic Quarter, and the Ribera and Raval districts. This is in fact one of the world's best-preserved medieval quarters. Barcelona is though famous for its exceptional architechture and buildings you can admire architectural masterpieces such as the Sagrada Família and La Pedrera

Museu Picasso - The Museu Picasso is Barcelona's most visited museum. It's housed in three beautiful stone mansions on the Carrer de Montcada.

La Sagrada Familia - La Sagrada Familia is a must and not to be missed.
