Ensconced by the sea and dripping with the full flavor of Catalonia, the Spanish city of Barcelona is a vibrant mecca where gastronomy, architecture, culture and nightlife seamlessly blend. The city comprises 10 districts, all connected by a series of mazelike quarters with streets freckled by colorful façades and UNESCO-recognized Gaudí architecture. During the day in this cosmopolitan Catalonian capital, a pulsating pace of life rises from the food stalls in the busy La Boqueria Market and works its way out to the fashionable shopping streets near Passeig de Gràcia. But at night, that pace becomes a rhythm as the city comes alive with the sultry sounds of house music pouring from rooftop bars and the thumping beats of electronic tunes charging the air with energy.
