Its skyline is great.Not many skyscrapers,but that will surely change in the future.The only other European city that can compare in its awesome layout is Paris.Barcelona is a true candidate for Europes most awesome city.
They should do something about some of those awfull,rundown suburbs though.Apart from that an almost perfect city.10/10.

Thanks a lot!!

But remember that Paris suburbs are uglier and more problematic than elsewhere...

No problemo.Barcelona is just awesome.I just took a browse at the 200 top cities according to the publisher lonely planet.Barcelona is ranked 4th.Just behind Paris,New York and Sydney.It's amazing how other Spaniards under-rate Barcelona so much.Yet in the vast world outside of Spain it is vastly admired and considered to be Spains premiere city by faaaaar.
You won't read a travel mag where Barcelona is not drooled upon.

lol Sydney, what a hole in the ground, if any city is over rated it has to be Sydney... Unless you're gay and enjoy their mardigra's and fruity culture.. Never the less still a great city but definatly not top 3 material

Yes and no.Sydney has a harbour and clean blue waters which Melbourne doesn't have.From an aerial view Sydney is amazing.Having said that.Melbourne is a far more elegant and well planned city.And with docklands really starting to take shape.I genuinely believe that Melbourne is going to leave Sydney way behind.Besides those Bondi style beaches are only a short drive from Melbourne i.e Ocean grove,Lorne etc....I've actually just found out that the Melbourne Markets in Footscray which is closing down is going to be converted into a kuxurious residential area.With everything that's going on in Melbourne it will probably end up becoming the almost perfect city.

^ In a recent BBC Travel show, the top 20 city destinations outside the UK were listed and Barcelona also came no.1.

Not surprised really, it is such an amazing city.

I must agree with you pesh, when you look past Sydney's 'Glamour' if you could call it that, on topic i'd say barcelona would be a much more desirable place to visit because of its rich historical presence and not to mention its night life

Thanks a lot to everybody! You are very kind.

I do not understand why BCN is so underrated in Spain...

Anyway, a present for you all:


Barcelona skyline, the day before yesterday.
