View Finder: Barcelona

Spain’s second city, but arguably its first in terms of culture, architecture, art and night life.  Situated on the shores of the Mediterranean in Catalunia, Barcelona attracts around 7 million visitors every year who come to marvel at the colourful modernism of Antoni Gaudi’s buildings, to enjoy a glass of vino in one of the many plazas in the Gothic quarter, or simply to relax on the beach.

In recent months, Barcelona has voiced concerns about the increasing numbers of tourists; large groups are now banned from entering the old Mercado de la Boqueria near the Ramblas, and visitors must now pay 8€ to enter Parc Güell.  A city this vibrant, however, is always going to be a popular choice of destination.
