1. Architecture of Antoni Gaudí

Antoni Gaudí is a person who created Barcelona as we all know it today - stunning and breathtaking. He is the person who made the world better and for sure, more beautiful. Thanks to him, Barcelona has famous Casa Batlló and Casa Milà, beautiful Park Güell and unbelievable Sagrada Familia. Gaudí belonged to the Modernisme (Art Nouveau) movement and was famous for his unique style and highly individualistic designs. And this is not only one of the reasons to love Barcelona, but also something that everyone must see in his lifetime!

2. Style and Fashion

Barcelona is a heaven for shopping lovers! Spain is home for such fashion brands and labels as Zara, Mango, Pull & Bear, Desigual, Women's Secret, Maxmara and many others. If you don't mind to spend some time for shopping, go to its famous Plaza Catalunya, where most of the shopping streets with countless boutiques, luxury and retail stores start. Also pay attention to the cloth made by local designers, such a variety of models, colours and creative designs you will not see anywhere else in the world!

3. Football

If someone will ever ask you what is the main religion in Spain, don't be so confident answering that this is Catholicism. For most of people in Spain (especially in Barcelona which is a home town for the Football Club Barcelona), football is a religion, hobby, passion and a part of the life. If you are lucky to be there in one of the days when FC Barcelona is playing a game, you will see the total atmosphere of the football madness on the streets of the city, and this is just something amazing that you will remember till the end of your life!

4. Food

Spanish food is definitely one of the reasons why we love Spain. No one can stay indifferent to its delicious flavors! And Barcelona can be easily called a capital of Spanish gastronomy, with an outstanding number of bars, cafes and restaurants for any kind of a client - from homey style places to haute cuisine. For sure, this is something that will make your trip to this incredible country even better! Visit local bars, restaurants, and taste as many of Spanish dishes as possible! Don't be afraid of calories, just simply enjoy your meal with a glass of sangria and may your every minute in Spain be full off joy and happiness!

5. Beaches

From famous Barceloneta to nudist Mar Bella, Barcelona has a lot of stunning beaches on the coast of Mediterranean Sea. What can be better than a morning run along the seaside, swimming and sunbathing during hot summer days or a romantic dinner on a beach of Barcelona just before the sunset? This is what makes the city even more perfect, and the last (but not least) reason in this article that we believe made you fall in love with Barcelona even without visiting it!
