After visiting Barcelona for the first time in July, I finally understand why there are so many songs about this bustling city; it's beyond magical. The food, the architecture, the locals, and the culture all made me seriously fall in love with it, and I cannot wait until my next trip back. Whether you're headed there for a semester studying abroad or you're vacationing there with friends or your SO, Barcelona is the perfect place to have an incredible European vacation. Obviously you'll be taking a ton of pics while you're there, so you'll need Instagram captions for Barcelona to pair with your posts.

From the Gaudí sculptures and mosaics, to the colorful snacks at La Boqueria, to the quaint hole-in-the-wall tapas restaurants, there are many things to explore through the winding streets of Barcelona. There are few places in the world that have captivated me as much as Barcelona did, and through visiting 20 countries, this has been one of my favorite cities to explore by far.

So what are you waiting for? Put on your espadrilles and your cutest warm weather clothes and vamos a Barcelona. Don't forget to take pictures along the way and use some of these captions for your posts. Your Instagram feed will thank you.
