History & Culture

This is a city with so many sights you are spoilt for choice. A climb up the steps of Gaudi’s world famous Sagrada Familia Cathedral is a must for your itinerary if you’re after incredible views of the city and its stunning architecture. Park Guell, a short cab ride from the city centre, also affords amazing views right out across to the harbour and is home to outdoor Gaudi sculptures and mosaics. In the evening, stroll down the famous thoroughfare of La Ramblas, stopping at tempting tapas bars en route.

Nightlife

 

Nightlife

Barcelona has its fair share of glitzy restaurants, local tavernas and colourful tapas bars. Try the Catalan stew, Crema Catalana or pintxo style tapas where various cured meats, local cheeses and more are served on bread. If you’re a night owl, after sunset Barcelona ramps up the volume in its bustling squares, the Barri Gothic and La Ramblas. On the beach you'll find cool, open-air clubs where the scene doesn't get going until after 10pm.

 
Food & Drink

 

Food & Drink

Barcelona is the home of bite-seized goodies and you cannot return from a trip without trying the tasty tapas. Head to Quimet I Quimet, La Esquincia or El Jabali for magnificent menus full of patatas bravas, tigres and llonganissa sausages as you sip on local wine.

 
Barcelona Beaches

 

Barcelona Beaches

All of Barcelona’s beaches can be reached from the yellow metro line L4, or it’s a short cycle or walk from Las Ramblas. Out of a whopping 9km stretch of sand you’ll find Blue Flag beaches including La Nova Icaria, Bogatell, La Mar Bella, Llevant beach and more.
