No. 4 Barcelona

La Sagrada Familia is unfinished, and your stay will be, too, if that’s the only Gaudí attraction you see! The city is home to over 20 of his works. Don't miss Casa Milá’s iconic chimneys.

No. 6 Faro

Look inward, not just out to sea. The Old Town of Faro in particular is charming, with beautiful churches, tree-lined squares and cobbled streets inside the city walls. Often undeservedly overlooked.
