Barcelona, Spain 

A hub of eclectic buildings and fascinating culture, Barcelona in north-eastern Spain is like nowhere else on earth. Like most world-class destinations, the city has a spectacular foodie scene (bar-hopping and feasting on tapas is a must-do here), but it's the unique architecture that really makes it stand out. 

Synonymous with Barcelona, the Spanish artist GaudÍ has well and truly left his mark on the city, making it brilliant to explore on foot. One of the best examples of this is Park Güell in the Collserola foothills (about 20 minutes from the city's centre). An architectural park where houses, fountains and walkways are decorated with technicolour mosaic tiles, it's also where you'll get a clear view all the way out to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Make sure you also visit the other-worldly La Sagrada Familia church (also designed by GaudÍ) and the straight-from-a-storybook fountain at Parc de la Ciutadella.
