Barcelona, Spain (April 27-28, 2008)

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is a beautiful and bustling portside city in the north of Spain. From the crowded pedestrian avenue of Las Ramblas, to the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter, to the landmark Gaudi architecture throughout, Barcelona is a city best explored on foot. Spacious parks and the popular beachfront area provide respite from the city's busy downtown.
