    As one of the most travel-friendly cities in Europe, Barcelona’s locals see tourism as both a curse and a blessing, and we’ll take you through how to make the most of its true charms and move to the beat of the authentic Barcelona, without falling prey to tourist traps. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Catalonia’s regional capital will be like anywhere else in Spain: yes, there are parallels, but Catalan culture is markedly separate, and we’ll show you why this once independent region of the Iberian Peninsula and its fiercely proud people define themselves as different. The city’s compact size makes a walk from its ancient centre to its vibrant beaches an easy one – cool breeze permitting, meaning it’s manageable to see your fair share of the area in both a long weekend city break and a longer Catalan adventure. The city’s waterfront is constantly developing, not only as a recreational area for party crowds and shoppers, but a Mediterranean port and the economical centre of Spain. Barcelona is cloaked in a proud history, dating back to the Roman period, and you can see the ruinous charm of the city through its gleaming restorations, which are thanks to the 1992 Summer Olympics, giving the city a new lease of life: as a city that embraces all things new, a city that stays up late into the night, a city with an impossibly poetic and artistic quality and a city with a discerning cuisine that’s turned it into a top destination for foodies, the mind-boggling question is; how wasn’t it so popular beforehand?
