Travel Tips for visiting Barcelona

Barcelona: The most dynamic city in Spain

The "capital of modernism", a bustling and festive destination

Barcelona has a thousand and one faces. 
If the Catalan capital is so attractive, it is because it skilfully combines the Iberian way of life with the energy of a large European metropolis. 

A weekend in Barcelona will not be too long to discover its different districts:

From the Barri Gotic in the heart of the city to the Raval, which houses the famous Macba (Barcelona's contemporary art museum),
To the Rambla, the famous avenue leading to the port.
Scattered throughout the city, the works of Gaudi are of course unmissable but don't miss the futuristic skyscrapers either.

Where is Barcelona?

Barcelona is cradled by the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, in the northeast of the Iberian Peninsula, 2 hours south of the French Pyrenees.
It is the capital of Catalonia, a region in the north of Spain with a particularly strong culture, personality, and traditions.

Barcelona is unique

Few cities in Europe can offer as much diversity and cultural experience as Barcelona.
Add to this the 4.2km of beaches just a stone's throw from the city center and the year-round sunshine, and you have all the ingredients for a successful vacation in Spain.

A city of modern art

Many great artists and painters have lived here and their influence has marked the city.
Two of them are Picasso and Miró, to whose works two museums are dedicated.
There are also dozens of other museums and art galleries throughout the city, always offering the possibility to discover new artistic expressions during your stay.

The beach at your doorstep

If you want to recuperate from cultural and artistic overload.
You can spend the day on one of the sandy beaches within walking distance of the city center.

Order a sangria at one of the bars and kick off your shoes, lie back, and let the sun, sea, and view wash over you.

The cuisine in Barcelona, Spain

While on the beach you can enjoy some of the best seafood dishes the Mediterranean has to offer.
If you prefer, there are some great bars and restaurants that offer tapas.
Many establishments offer the option of a more classic meal if you prefer simplicity.
