The Beauty of Barcelona (PHOTOS)


Here is something that is probably true: If you go to Barcelona, you're gonna party. The club scene is incredible and massive and it feels like the party never ends. Thus, siestas are a necessity.

But don't party and siesta your entire experience away. Barcelona is defined by its absolute architectural mastery, historic streets, beautiful beaches, incredible art scene and don't forget the bold (and delicious) tapas.

So, get lost in the cobblestoned Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter), get awe-struck by Gaudi's masterpieces, venture into random restaurants and eat a ton of food, visit the Museu Picasso and the Fundació Joan Miró, and lay out on la Barceloneta.
