    me and mr. kaff went in october and had a great time.

    there's loads to do if you're into culture and art, there are all kinds of museums, an aquarium, parks, fantastic shopping, and LOADs of restuarants, bars and i imagine, clubs, although we didn't go to any.

    it's not expensive, but it's not dirt cheap either. it depends what you'll be doing. we got a flight over for £17 each (god bless jet2) and the hotel we stayed in was cheap and cheerful. if you don't want frills, you can get a really good deal.

    i loved it, personally, and would definitely go back.

    Theres loads of places to go if you want to look at the culture of the city, theres art musems and galleries that are interesting if your into that kind of thing.

    Las Ramblas though is your place to be if you want all the action, shops, every different little thing you can imagine for sale.

    I know that isn't really helpful but i'm tired and can't really be arsed but if you do a search you'll find some great threads about Barcelona on here.

    It's one of my fave places in the world and because it's so beautiful and has great atmosphere, a lot of the time you don't necessarily have to spend a lot of money because you can just stroll about the streets and soak up the city.

    Lots of great cheap places to eat - try Juicy Jones for a bit of a trippy eating experience. Park Guell is free and the other Gaudi places you pay to enter but they're v good value for money.
