A unique, but PAINFULLY overrated city.

I agree!
barcelona is great, but there are so many other spanish / italian / portuguese cities that are just as beautiful, but are less famous and touristy!

It is an amazing city, but that has continued to oversell itself since about 2000. It has some unique monuments, such as the Gaudi architecture. But outside of this, you see the same type of bland modern stuff you would see in any other large Spanish city. But you talk to any sheep of a tourist, and you would think that the entire city was some mythical Modernist playland.

Is it one of Europe's great cities? Of course. Is it grossly overexposed? Definitely.

Nice photos! I changed planes in Barcelona last monday on my way from Madrid to Copenhagen. It is really one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, but it was interesting to see Madrid as well (have been to Barcelona some years ago). There are many other beautiful Spanish cities that deserve attention as well.

If you mean purely in terms of architecture, then perhaps. Certainly there are significantly large numbers of crappy post-war blocks and modern glass boxes. However, judging as a whole it is one of the few places I've been to which I found lived close to the hype. The city does market itself massively though.

Anyway it's all subjective. The most overrated city for me is Dublin. Worried about when I go to Berlin.
