Barcelona Travel Guide

You don't have to be an architecture buff to admire Gaudi's whimsical architecture, which you can find throughout Barcelona. You also don't have to book pricey tours to visit sites like the Sagrada Familia cathedral, Park Guell, and Casa Batlló. Public transportation is easy to use in this city—just hop on the bus from the ship to the Columbus statue, cross the street, and take the subway wherever you please. Tickets cost €1.25 each way.
