Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Vila Vella (Old Town) and Casa Batllo. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Fenals Beach and Llevant Beach.

There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Basilica of the Sagrada Familia, expand your horizons at Grandma's Cooking Barcelona, contemplate the long history of Basilica de Santa Maria del Mar, and stroll around Parc Guell.
