24 HOURS IN BARCELONA

It’s hard not to love Barcelona. In fact, we don’t suggest trying. Just accept that this city is too awesome to not succumb to its charms. It’s hedonistic, artistic and audacious at once. There is so much art that even the buildings look like they should be in a museum. Then there’s the beaches, the parks, the food and the music. It’s the perfect place to love life. And if your life loves siestas and fiestas, you’ve come to the right place.
9am Churros, chocolate and coffee for breakfast.
10am Spend some quality time exploring the intricacies of La Sagrada Familia. The detail, the design, the passion that has gone into creating this building is awe-inspiring. And it’s not even finished yet.
1pm Find a shady spot in CIuetadella Park and siesta, along with the rest of the city.
2pm Get your art on at Museu Picasso. The medieval stone building is almost as interesting as the art.
3pm Some serious fashion labels come from Spain so shopping here is a cultural experience. Really.
5pm Take a train up to Parc Guell for more mind-blowing architecture.
7pm Head to the beach for an evening drink and tapas at one of the little bars. Some are right on the sand.
10pm The city seems to only just be waking up now. Start your night of fiesta in Las Ramblas (the Old Town) and take it from there.
