Although the legend of George and the Dragon is well known, there is strong evidence the man really existed. A Roman soldier who in 303AD was martyred for refusing to denounce his Christian faith, George was canonised in 494AD.

Barcelona is the city with it all. Culture at every turn, glorious food and a fantastic beach, for when you've had enough of the sight-seeing and just want to flop on the sand and catch some rays. Here's my top five things to do whilst visiting Barcelona. Plus I've thrown in one place that's a dud, so best to give this a miss.
With little windy streets of cafes, bars and shops and open squares of lush greenery and outdoor bars, El Raval definitely has a laid back and local vibe to it.

Dos Cielos is surprisingly small and intimate and with every table occupied, we definitely felt very lucky to be dining there.
