cover-ctr-picture-this-barcelonaWhen our group first arrived in Barcelona, we thought we could conquer the city in three weeks. How naive. Whether you are wandering the knot of narrow streets in the Gothic Quarter or feeling breezy on your bicycle at Barceloneta beach, there is always another word-class bar, café or restaurant nearby to try (and fail) at resisting, or a museum, art gallery or shop brimming with unique – and totally bizarre, depending on your approach – knickknacks and treasures.

The seemingly limitless depth and breadth of Barcelona life shouldn’t have come as such a surprise. Barcelona is the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean coast, the capital of the autonomous Catalonia and, as a towering tourist destination, a city that excels at keeping its nine million expected visitors in 2015 enchanted. It checks almost everything a dream city should: shopping, beaches, mountains, nightlife, culture and a fabulous atmosphere.

If that isn’t enough, the creations of Antoni Gaudí, who apparently decided he was solely responsible for designing all of Barcelona’s icons, saturates the city with boundless vitality and charm. Such powerful designs partnered with a communal, grassroots spirit means Barcelona feels like a city raring to live and survive – as it did in the Spanish Civil War and will continue to in its debate over Catalan independence, and as to whether the ballooning tourism industry is a threat or blessing.

Barcelona is a changing, colourful city. Wherever and whenever you visit, its vibrant, joyous undercurrent is impossible not to feel and enjoy – when you’re not dizzy on Mojitos and sunbathing, that is.
