    Finally we are going to write about our favorite city – Barcelona! There are so much to do in Barcelona and our greatest regret was having not enough time to explore what the city has to offer in terms of cuisine, art, culture and architecture. We filled up our stomachs with so much of tapas, pintxos and vermouth and chowed down plenty of fresh seafood. Droll while you scroll down for pictures.
