Besides being a fan of Spanish football… umm… soccer according to my American friends, I am also a fan of Spain. Its food, people and architecture are among the many reasons I love the place. So in late 2018 we will be heading to Spain, Barcelona in particular and this is what we have discovered about that city during our research. We also included a list of free things to do in Barcelona.

It is also Catalonia's biggest city and one of Spain's most populated municipalities. Barcelona accommodates about 2 million people within its city boundaries. However, its urban area stretches beyond its administrative units and is home to more than 4 million people. Interesting architecture covers Barcelona's landscape. A tour of this city is an experience we can't wait to have.
