Barcelona, is the capital and the largest city of Catalonia known for its history, art and architecture. The beautiful Sagrada Família church and other popular landmarks designed by Anthony Gaudi  dot the city. There are several other historical monuments with beautiful architecture in the region.

Gothic Quarter is the centre of the old city and right next to it is the La Rambla street which is famous for Barcelona holidays. Its patchwork of architectural styles displays dark, Gothic façades next to the harlequin buildings of the Modernistas and the constructions of Jean Nouvel or Herzog and de Meuron. A day spent admiring them can be topped off with a sundowner on one of the city’s seven beaches before dinner at any number of Michelin-starred gastronomic temples or humble, family-run tapas bars.

Discover your next great holiday to Barcelona. Explore the huge Catholic Church -La Sagrada Familia which was designed by one of the city’s favourite sons, Antonio Gaudi, and is perhaps the most iconic Barcelona sight. The wide range of clubs and restaurants , markets and shops can be found in La Rambla, the most famous street of Barcelona . Sightseeing and shopping will be in abundance with loads of offers and  attractions in Barcelona.

MORE ABOUT BARCELONA

City Beaches
City Beaches

Barcelona’s beachfront boardwalk stretches for miles. It will take a good hour to get from Barceloneta to Diagonal Mar on foot, but it’s a walk that really helps you understand the city.
 
The westernmost beaches like Sant Sebastià are busier and more touristy, but are backed by Barceloneta’s tight lattice of trendy shops and bars with terraces and outdoor seating.

As you move along the waterfront after the Olympic Port you’ll find a bit more room and more Barcelona locals.Finally, just up from Platja de Llevant is the massive and new Diagonal Mar mall, revitalising a former industrial part of the city.

Food & Drinks
Food & Drinks

International food is superb in Barcelona, especially when it comes to Japanese-style noodle bars, which have become popular in the last 10 years.

Another trend is pintxos, Basque-style bar snacks in which delicious things like croquettes and fish are served on a piece of bread held together with a toothpick (pincho).

For a main course here on the coast nothing beats arròs negre, rice simmered with cuttlefish or squid, followed by rich crema catalana for dessert.

Placa De Catalunya
Placa De Catalunya

This is the best meeting point in the city. It’s right at the bottom of the posh Passeig de Gràcia and at the top of Las Ramblas.

If you’re waiting for friends in the evening for a meal or getting ready for a shopping expedition by day nowhere in the Ciutat Vella or Eixample will be more than a few minutes on foot from this grand square.
Barcelona’s flagship branch of El Corte Inglés is right here, and if you’re new to the city and want to get oriented you could go inside to pick up a map.

Nightlife
Nightlife

Barcelona offers a wide variety of bars, discos and clubs offering all kinds of music, its atmosphere is alive and is different each night, especially at weekends, when the city is much more crowded!

The night in Barcelona starts late: people at dinner 23.00, then it is customary to meet up with friends for wandering from one room to another (“IR de copas”), until you reach some disco, ready to dance until late morning. The clubs of the city Flock very late: indeed, the evening starts around 2.00 and often ends the following morning.
