Barcelona, Spain

Barcelona has attractions like the iconic Sagrada Familia landmark, the call of the Mediterranean beaches and a lively (and delicious) cuisine and drinks scene, it’s no wonder Barcelonais one of Spain’s most visited spots.

Most travellers make it a point to explore the hilltop Parc Güell while visiting, a must-do activity. Since you have to buy timed entries, many usually head up in the morning to beat the heat. But checking the time of the sunset and timing your tickets to watch that Spanish ball of fire set over the tiled benches, Barcelona’s cityscape and the sea is a much better plan. Plus, you’ll beat some of those morning crowds, too.
