Barcelona is a great destination for a city break any time of the year, with its stunning architecture, top museums, never-ending nightlife and beaches just a walk from the city centre. Most of the year enjoys warm weather and outdoor events take over the city, including massive music festivals, such as Sónar and Primavera Sound, as well as jazz nights in the open spaces of gorgeous Gaudí buildings around the city.
Cultural festivals feature thrilling human towers, fashion shows, Christmas markets and sporting events like the Barcelona Marathon and the Spanish Grand Prix, and the neighbourhood of Gràcia welcomes visitors to what is likely Europe's best street party. It's a big year for the city's museums and galleries, with a major new Dalí and Picasso exhibition and shows at the brand-new Design Museum and Museum of World Cultures.
