Things to do
A visit to Barcelona is incomplete without seeing all its unique architectural landmarks, so take a guided architecture tour to learn about art nouveau modernism and the history behind the whimsical works of Antoni Gaudi.
After seeing the gems around the city, take a day to experience the largest art nouveau collection at Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau to witness even more magnificent architecture.
Then immerse yourself in the epic Picasso museum, that houses around 4500 pieces of his work from the 12th century.
To close the night, visit Palau de la Musica Catalana, a stunning theater and try to catch a performance.
You can easily travel from Barcelona to Mallorca, the gorgeous Spanish island, by ferry or plane.
Start your adventure in Mallorca with a full-day wellness retreat at Hammam al Ándalus Banos Arabes in Palma, to relax in Arabic baths, temperature-regulated rooms and massages.
To complement your spa day, shop at Arquinesia Perfumes for beyond-beauty retail and to take your Mallorca experience with you.
Explore Drach caves, arguably the island's main attraction, for an underground concert and witness the largest underground lake. Then, take full-day boat tour to jumping into glistening seas of the island (beware of jellyfish!).
Places to eat & drink
You can't visit the city without a stop to Bar Canete, which will soon become an instant favorite for its fabulous tapas and even more fabulous interiors.
Bar Mut is another can't-miss tapas spot - the menu is only in Spanish so make sure your "google translate" is up-to-date! Dr. Stravinsky for custom cocktails.
Caravalle, an Australian joint with super healthy brunch (you might feel like you're momentarily in a different city).
Yakumanka for Peruvian paella that is pretty enough for Instagram stories.
Ca Na Toneta is a charming hide-away that offers up true farm-to-table tasting menu that as is stunning as it is delicious. The patio books up months in advance so be sure to reserve early!
Tokio de Lima in Palma is chic, elevated Peruvian/Japanese food with a lovely terrace.
Nama in Deia is a fabulous Asian fusion spot in the heart of the buzziest town on the island.
El Camino is a sophisticated spot in Palma that has a pared-down but elevated menu. Snag a seat at the chic bar with a friend for a cocktail first.
