I am a self-confessed foodie, I am always seeking to test my taste buds.

Built for the Universal Forum of Cultures exhibition in 2004, Barcelona’s Parc del Forum in the Diagonal Mar district is an unlikely way to spend an afternoon.

Situated near the beach, the park offers breathtaking views of the coast as well as encompassing a swimming pool, music auditorium and a yacht marina. One of the area’s highlights, the Herzog & de Meuron-designed Edificio Forum sits on the edge of the park, it’s electric blue facade instantaneously informing lost visitors (like myself) that they are indeed in the right place.
