Pop­u­la­tion: Over 1.6 mil­lion (2012)

Source: Na­tional In­sti­tute of Statis­tics This tem­per­ate Span­ish city draws art and food lovers alike, who come to ex­plore the Pi­casso mu­seum, walk the wind­ing al­ley­ways of the Gothic Quar­ter, and in­dulge in fresh seafood and san­grias at lo­cal tapas bars. A visit isn't com­plete with­out experiencing An­toni Gaudí's iconic Sagrada Fa­milia Basil­ica and whim­si­cal Park Güell. Rick Steves’ Au­dio Europe (Free) When you ar­rive in Barcelona, you can count on Euro­pean travel ex­pert Rick Steves to show you around. His Barcelona guide of­fers a walk­ing tour of the city's great artists, from Pi­casso to Gaudí to Dali. Down­load Steves' ra­dio shows to learn to “Live Like a Spa­niard” or to un­der­stand the re­gion's del­i­ca­cies (yes, bull's tail is a thing).

Hailo (Free) While the Old City's nar­row lanes are per­fect for trav­el­ing on foot, you'll want a cab to reach other des­ti­na­tions, such as the gar­dens of Park Güell. Dubbed the Uber of Europe, this popular ride-hail­ing app is up for the task. You can choose the type of car you want, set pickup lo­ca­tions, get fare es­ti­mates, and pay all within the app.

Spot­ted by Lo­cals (Free) Spot­ted by Lo­cals shows you the coolest places to eat, drink, party, and ex­pe­ri­ence lo­cal cul­ture. Once you pay $3.99 to down­load the Barcelona map, you'll have ac­cess to tons of re­views from lo­cals, from the best sand­wich joints to the lat­est play at the lo­cal opera house. You can mark fa­vorites, switch to a map view, and nav­i­gate off­line via GPS.

Barcelona Travel Guide (Free) This app's photo tour of Barcelona is a great tool for plan­ning your trip, of­fer­ing vi­su­als and re­views of the city's top at­trac­tions. You can save places you'd like to visit to Fa­vorites, and even connect to book­ing ser­vices for ho­tels, tours, and event tick­ets. The app is free, but there's a catch—it is ad-sup­ported.
