Because of its popularity and central location in the city, Las Ramblas is always filled with people. This is especially the case at night, as the thoroughfare is a popular meet up spot before locals and visitors head out for a night out on the town. visualspace Getty Images

The Palace of Catalan Music is lauded for its striking architecture. Even if you can't get tickets to a show, visitors highly recommend booking a tour with the venue to view its beautiful interiors.  kkmarais Flickr
