Start your tour from your holiday accommodation Barcelona by strolling down to the famous "Las Ramblas" pedestrian walkway, where Spanish style is out in full colour. Station yourself at one of the many trendy outdoor cafés and you'll find yourself in one of Europe’s best spots for people-watching. See and be seen - Las Ramblas is a mecca for fashionable creatures to strut their stuff, and it’s also a place where well-known fashionistas have been rumoured to look for clues so don't leave your cheap apartment Barcelona or your villa Barcelona without your best outfit. An attraction of a more bizarre nature can be found by visiting the Church of the Sacred Family, also referred to as la Sagrada Familia, which is hardly a traditional European Cathedral – after all, it was never even finished. Top that off, it’s by Gaudi, and is a centuries-old predecessor to artistic styles of the early 20th century. Not only is the Sagrada Familia a totally over-embellished, lavish yet spiritually inspiring structure, it is the final resting place of Gaudi himself. While staying in your apartment Barcelona, don’t forget to check out the Picasso Museum. Despite the fact that this artist was born in Malaga in southern Spain, this museum is by far one of Spain’s – and the world’s – best exhibitions of this important artist. Like any great painter, Picasso has engendered his share of controversy. Yet the power of his images – and many critics attest to their moving beauty as well – is evidenced in his ability to help define a generation.
