Barcelona, the city of art and architecture is the capital of the Catalonia region of Spain. With the city having everything right from beaches to pubs to parks, there is a lot to see and do, I suggest to plan at least 3 days if you really want to see everything around . This Vibrant city is home to the football stadium of Camp Nou where the legendary players of the Barcelona Club like Messi play. I visited Barcelona in the spring 2017 and its one of my favorite tourist destinations so far. There was something familiar in the air that made me feel at home.Barcelona totally stood out for me !!
