For more iconic culture, visit the Museu Picasso or take in some of the magnificent churches, such as the Sant Pau del Camp and the Santa Maria del Mar. Also stroll around the port, tour the grand football stadium and sample the local food. You’ll be spoilt for choice – but make sure you also head out to see what the rural regions have to offer.
