I've been to both and I prefer Barcelona.

DON'T go there in summer though, just too ****ing crowded, and blazing.

Architecture - there is only one Gaudi. Go to Barcelona and don't forget to go to Parc Guell, the park that Gaudi designed and filled with sculpture and toys.

Day trips - Madrid. Toledo and Segovia are easy day trips and very much worth seeing.

Don't like crowds? - get out of the old part of Barcelona and go to Gracia. It's like a little Paris - rich, bohemian, and beautiful.

Agreed, Andalusia is more varied and exotic than either Madrid or Barcelona.
