If you're looking for a city that's got it all you couldn't do much better than choose the Catalan capital Barcelona, Spain's second city, and one that's bursting with life at every turn. Whether you’re looking for a party town, laid back beach resort, or a cultural oasis in which to lose yourself this city has activities to keep everyone happy.
Not many European cities steeped in culture can also boast beautiful beaches literally right on their doorsteps, but Barcelona is no average city. Explore out-of-this-world buildings courtesy of famous local architect Gaudi, head down to Las Ramblas to find crazy street performers and market stalls selling everything from fruit and flowers, to birds, bunnies and snakes in cages or join the bikini set at Barceloneta Beach, a 15-minute stroll out of town and finish your day enjoying nightlife to rival Paris or London. This city has it all.
Get the lowdown on Catalonia's best beers, whilst visiting the new wave of bars that sell them, on a Tapas & Beers craft beer tasting tour (www.tapasandbeers.com). The guide is a master brewer and connoisseur of the scene. Foodies might prefer their tapas crawl of the Gracia district.
The 49th edition of International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia takes place in Sitges between 7-16th of October (www.sitgesfilmfestival.com). As usual premieres of horror, sci-fi and fantasy, along with the highly entertaining "Zombie Walk", will bring cinema freaks together in Spain this autumn.
Whilst Park Guell draws the path beaters, locals will be heading to the gorgeous Parc de la Ciutadella to sunbathe, slackline, practice yoga, and sip a "cerveza beer amigo".
Set on a rocky outcrop next to a beautiful reservoir where you can swim and kayak, the town of Siurana still bears the legacy of its life as an Arab stronghold - the remains of a 9th century Moorish castle. The surrounding area is popular with hikers and rock climbers. www.turismesiurana.org
