I've just come back from Barcelona, and I really fancied it. Here are some pics from my trip.

The Sagrada Familia, by Antoni Gaudì , is one of Barcelona's landmarks.

Another popular attraction is La Rambla (or maybe areLas Rablas Emotion: wink), a large street that goes straight to the port. Walk down La Rambla, enjoy the living statues, buy some souvenirs, have some food (beware of pickpockets and always keep an eye on your bag, camera or whatever, though!).
