Barcelona is a charming and elegant city that will enchant you from the moment you arrive. The city has become a destination for world-famous architects, many inspired by Barcelona's native son, architect Antonio Gaudi. In fact, the city's skyline is most famous for Gaudi's masterpiece, his unfinished Sagrada Familia cathedral. The most famous street in Spain, the tree-lined boulevard Las Ramblas, is lined with cafes, restaurants and shops, and is usually jam-packed with shoppers. As soon as the sun sets, the city's many bars and restaurants come to life. Dinner is typically between 9:00 pm and midnight, and the bars and nightclubs are open well into the early hours of the morning.
