Why It's Worth It

The proud capital of Catalonia, Barcelona is a city of immense spirit and cultural pride. At its core, a labyrinth of medieval alleyways harbor a glut of Roman relics, while the vivid modernist architecture, world-class museums and thriving gastronomy scene make it a seductively alluring destination for culturally-curious travelers and the gastronomically inclined. Bolstered by pine-blanketed mountains and a sun-struck coastline, it delivers what many hail as the epitome of Mediterranean living. —Ben Holbrook
