the culture

And outside of the match, Barcelona is a vibrant and artistically rich city with plenty of nooks and crannies to explore. There's no better place to start than the Picasso and Gaudi house museums, where some of the most famous works to change the course of art history can be seen. The dazzling and peculiar colours of Picasso's paintings and Gaudi's off-the-wall sculptures are blinding examples of the talent brought up in Barcelona's bustling boroughs.

the rest

Into your shopping? Try the atmospheric Gothic Quarter and Catalonia square, or visit the Raval for vintage, retro clothes. As for landmarks, you can't get much more impressive than La Sagrada Familia, which dominates its surroundings as a globally recognised icon - well worth a visit. Remember to look up when roaming the streets: the Gaudi-designed buildings dotted around the city are masterpieces in themselves. And then there's the beach at Barceloneta: the perfect place for a total chill out, beer in hand (well, in the warmer months at least). Finally, for a Spainsh home from home try the Hotel Prestige Paseode Gracia.
