From commuter bike renting to skyscraping Spanish hotels, check out these 16 Barcelonavations to see a little bit of the city for yourself.

While living in Spain, I traveled all around the country in order to see everything I could. Bouncing in and out of Spanish hotels, I came to Barcelona towards the end of my time there. I have to say, it was my favorite city of all. Home to beautiful beaches, pretty girls, exciting night life and an abundance of amazing architecture, Barcelona is at the top of my list for European cities.
