The streets of Barcelona are like a library. With masterpieces in almost every corner, it is easy to get lost, just looking at the architectural wonders of the city.
The city of Barcelona is an extensive new urban grid characterized by long straight streets, octagonal buildings that facilitate the flow of traffic, and modern mansions and apartment buildings with stunning colourful facades.
Barcelona-based architect and photographer Roc Isern spends his free time photographing the vibrant facades of Barcelona buildings and sharing stunning photos on his personal and hugely popular Instagram page.
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, Spain. Legend has it that Hamilcar Barca, Hannibal's father, founded Barcino. Later, the Romans transformed the city into a Roman military base, a small hill near the location of today's town hall.
When do we go to Barcelona? The busiest months are July and August. If you do not go to Barcelona exclusively for the beach, then the best times are April-May.
