Here in Barcelona, it’s the architects who built the buildings that made the city iconic who are the objects of admiration – not a bunch of half-witted monarchs.

Barcelona is that dream vacation that you wish never ended because everything is perfect. From the exquisite food, rich architecture, cool weather, and warm beaches, Barcelona will make you cry the moment you board your plane back home. Being the last city on my two week European tour, Barcelona has instantly become one of my favorite cities.

When I was in Barcelona, I felt like I had lived there before. Maybe it’s because Barcelona shares a lot of similarities with Southern California: perfect whether, nice beaches, mountaintop views, and a plethora of entertainment. I can see why a lot of Hollywood actors and actresses own property in Barcelona. The city is a haven for most foreigners looking for a change.
