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.

The hipsters of Barcelona love nothing more than a vintage market, especially when it comes with food trucks and a fiesta atmosphere. Taking place on the first Saturday and Sunday of every month Palo Alto Market throws on live music, DJs and a vermouth bar as an aid to arts & clothes shopping. www.paloaltomarket.com

The summer district festival season is still in full swing in mid-September so head over to the Festa Major de Poblenou (8 to 17 September, www.festamajorpoblenou.org) for al fresco concerts and DJ sets day and night. Later in the month Europe's biggest open-air fiesta La Merce (22 to 25 September, lameva.barcelona.cat/merce/ca/) throws on street theatre, parades, art installations and, yes, more parties.

One of Barcelona's most innovative parks, Diagonal Mar was completed in 2002 and is a potent symbol of the El Poblenou district's regeneration. Different eco-systems are produced by a variety of plant life, which in turn brings diverse wildfowl and other birds to the area. Gaudi-inspired sculptures show an appreciation of heritage.

With a beach that stretches several kilometres, a pretty string of beachside properties, the ruins of a Roman villa and a grandiose castle, Altafulla is well worth a visit, and can be reached easily by train (around 1 hr from Barcelona Sants). The local Club Maritim offers kayak hire and other water sports. www.altafullaturisme.cat
