Barcelona has been ranked as the best holiday destination in Spain by reviewers on travel website TripAdvisor.
The city offers a "unique blend of Catalan culture, distinctive architecture, lively nightlife and trendy, stylish hotels", according to travellers who have enjoyed the Barcelona experience.
Holidaymakers planning to take out a
