Barcelona, the country’s second-largest city, is a cosmopolitan urban center known for its throbbing youthful energy and stellar architecture.

Get out of town with these interesting Barcelona side-trips: Sitges (La Playa de Sitges & Playa Balmins). There's still lots to do: walk around Parc Guell, make a trip to Casa Mila - La Pedrera, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and wander the streets of El Barri Gòtic.
