Things to do in Barcelona

From Port Vell to the spires of Barcelona Cathedral in Barrí Gòtic, exploring Barcelona is easy. See Picasso's delicate, early sketches in the Old Town and Joan Miró's colourful masterpieces on Montjuïc. Architecturally, Gaudí reigns supreme; follow the trail from La Sagrada Familia cathedral in Eixample to fantastical Park Güell in Gràcia. Further out, Tibidabo mountain beckons with its charming funfair. Labyrinth Park in Montbau has playful topiary to get lost in.
