#WanderlustWednesday: Barcelona

My heart is set on Spain as of late. Well, and just about all the other countries around the Mediterranean but for today, we’ll just focus on Barcelona.

Barcelona is the one the northeast coast of the Iberian Peninsula on the Mediterranean Sea.It has a Mediterranean climate with mild, humid winters and warm, dry summers. Barcelona is Spains second largest city. It is the 10th most visited city in the world and the 3rd most visited in Europe, following London and Paris.

Barcelona is an important cultural centre, rich with cultural heritage with a tradition in the creative arts, craftsmanship and architecture. The city is full of parks, museums and has some of the top beaches in the world. Barceloneta beach has been listed as one of the top ten beaches in the world by both National Geographic and the Discovery Channel. Barcelona is also a major fashion capital and of course is known for its food and nightlife.

Barcelona is home to several World Heritage Sites. Park Guell, Palau Guell, Casa Viceno, La Sagrada Familia, Casa Batllo, Palau de la musica Catalna and Hospital de Sant Pau. The church of Sagrada Familia has been under construction since 1882 and is set to be completed by 2026.

I would love to be able to just wander about Barcelona for days…
