Opening image: the space by the MACBA Museum in El Raval is a well-known spot for skaters. / The Sagrada Família may be one of the most famous places in Barcelona but it is worth visiting at least once in your life. / The view from our home: you have the sea, the city and the mountains all together. / La Bodega d’en Rafel in Sant Antoni is an authentic little bar where the vibe has not changed over time. / People like Bob Dylan have played at the Gran Teatre del Liceu. It’s an amazing place to watch a performance.

It’s filled with galleries, restaurants and music venues. / The city comes alive in summer as neighbourhoods take turns to hold a street festival. Fiestas de Gracia is one of the biggest. All the streets are blocked off and filled with live music, food and crazy decorations.
