Laced with Catalan charm, Barcelona plays with styles. Its medieval monuments go for gothic grandeur, while modern, undulating structures make a whimsical statement. The city’s architectural marvel sits unfinished, just nearly perfect. Then there’s the beaches, bringing soothing, seaside views.This mixture makes Barcelona's beauty, best observed from a bohemian tapas bar, down a winding street.
