Barcelona, Spain is a city steeped in modernist architecture and art. As the residence of great artists and designers such as Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Antoni Gaudí, it is no wonder that the city has become the cultural center for the country. One such location that has set a grand precedent for the city has been the seemingly endless construction of the utterly unique Sagrada Família designed by Antoni Gaudí. If in need of taking a break from all the amazing sightseeing, Barcelona’s terrain offers mountain hikes or a relaxing day at the beach while you feast on delectable tapas.
