Barcelona, Dubai and Berlin are cities that have broken the monopoly major capitals held on being the world's most visited destinations. This is no accident – and even less so in the city where Picasso, Dalí and Miró created most of their work. Year after year, European professionals select Barcelona as the city they most prefer to work in. And the thing is, what makes Barcelona one of the most desirable cities in the world for living is also what seduces the thousands of visitors that choose it as a weekend destination. What most surprises these visitors are not the houses of the brilliant Gaudí, closer to paintings or sculptures than mere buildings, but rather the discovery that it is hundreds of buildings that make Barcelona the global epicentre of art nouveau architecture. Heir to a design culture that permeates everything, Barcelona is constantly reinventing itself, from the celebration of the 1992 Olympic Games to the recovery of its Gothic Quarter, not to mention the city's opening-up to the sea and its miles of beaches. Even its football team has broken with tradition as the only club in the world whose fans prefer jogo bonito, or playing beautifully, a style whose current standard-bearer is best player in the world Leo Messi, to winning titles. Barcelona's agreeable climate throughout the year is ideal for exploring its streets and dining outdoors in restaurants where you can enjoy some of the best food in the world. From very traditional dishes to the most extraordinary flavours, it isn't for nothing that Catalan cuisine has become a global reference, with Ferran Adriá leading the way.
