Barcelona is a beautiful Spanish city full of artistic influence. From the streets to the buildings, the Sagrada Familia to the Casa Milà, the craftsmanship of this Catalonian city can be seen just about everywhere — and that's just a start.

With pleasant temperatures pretty much year round, there's no wrong time to visit this city, and the number of attractions and activities available throughout the year only add to that. Whether it's a bout of beach volleyball, taking part in a cooking class, revving the motor of a classic red vespa, or cheering on the popular FC Barcelona team from September to May, the options are endless, and reasons to visit countless. 

And while we could go on for awhile about the other aspects that make Barcelona a dreamy vacation spot, these 15 photos are surefire proof. You know what they say — a picture's worth a thousand words.
