Barcelona is a vibrant cosmopolitan city and the capital of Catalonia. It's a place like no other, thanks to its unusual buildings designed by famed architects. At the heart of the city lies the broad pedestrian boulevard, La Rambla. This well-known street is lined with restaurants, attractions and visual treats. Discover Joan Miro's cheery Pla de l'Os mosaic, the nearby Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art and the monumental Guell Palace by Gaudi. You'll find world-renowned architectural works by Gaudi in the city, like the Casa Mila, Casa Batllo and Park Guell and the iconic Sagrada Familia. As well as illustrious buildings, explore the distinguished artworks of Pablo Picasso and Joan Miro at the Museo Picasso and the Fundacio Joan Miro. For exclusive designer stores, walk the Passeig de Gracia. This influential street is a busy shopping spot in the city and it's also home to Gaudi's Casa Mila and Casa Batllo. The Gothic Quarter of the city is a great place for long strolls with its cobbled streets and winding alleyways. Wandering this area is like journeying back in time with Roman and Medieval walls, the remains of a Roman temple and the imposing Barcelona Cathedral with its ornate facade. It's also really close to Barcelona's main beach.
