Barcelona is included in the top 10 list by the Travel Magazine under the category of must-visit places in Europe, mainly because of it's interesting architecture by Gaudi developed between 1885 and 1950. Below are some of his master works.

Right in the center of the city they have HABITAT which is one of my favorite home furnishing stores, I'm crossing my fingers that one day they will open a store in LA!
