<p>Human tower builders</p>

If you think you need to travel beyond the regions of Barcelona to enjoy ancient and meaningful cultural spectacles, then you haven’t experienced the atmosphere of human tower-building performance from the front row, you haven’t leapt up and down during the Patum festivities in Plaça de Sant Pere in Berga, and you haven’t seen the night-time descent of the falles (torches) in Berguedà. If you had, you’d understand why UNESCO has included these essential ancient traditions in its List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity and, above all, you’d make a date in your diary to make sure you don’t miss them!

<p>Calella Lighthouse</p>

Calella is the tourism capital of the Maresme region, long renowned for the beauty of its beaches. But the city has plenty of other attractions that make it a must-see place to visit in the regions of Barcelona. This essential guide, listing just seven of them, is just a little taster to whet your appetite for exploring the rest!

<p>Badalona Museum</p>

Stroll along the refurbished seafront of Badalona on a sunny day and you may well end up wanting to move to the city! With five kilometres of beautiful beaches under the shade of palm trees, a seafront dating from the modernista period and several terraces on which to sip a cold beer, the city will draw you in. It's no illusion, Badalona is the real deal. Embrace it!.
