Barcelona, the country’s second-largest city, is a cosmopolitan urban center known for its throbbing youthful energy and stellar architecture.
Explore Barcelona's surroundings by going to Salou (Illuminated Fountain & PortAventura), Tossa de Mar (Playa Santa Maria de Llorell & Vila Vella (Old Town)) and Jardins Artigas (in La Pobla de Lillet). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, make a trip to The Magic Fountain, wander the streets of El Barri Gòtic, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Barcelona Cathedral.
