Barcelona – what a city!

Last updated on

Welcome to one of the world’s most visited and beloved cities!

What city in the world could be more perfect than Barcelona? With its cosmopolitan feel, relaxed pace of life, breathtaking architecture, fantastic gastronomy, and unbeatable climate, Barcelona has everything you need to enjoy life!


Best time to visit

Barcelona has a delightful Mediterranean climate and rarely gets extremely hot or cold (although July and August can be rather humid). Summer is the most popular time for a Barcelona trip, because the sun is at its brightest, the beaches are in top form, and outdoor concerts and events abound. Spring and fall are also good times to visit; the weather is milder and there are less crowds.

What to do

As we always say, the city really does has everything so whittling down what to do in Barcelona will be your biggest challenge. From the breathtaking modernist architecture of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, to the art museums displaying works by the likes of Picasso, Dalí, and Miró, culture lovers will never get bored.

Add the food markets, the unforgettable gastronomic experiences with a lot of Michelin restaurants but also amazing traditional food and “tapas”, the world’s best soccer club, and the vast, sprawling city beaches, and you can be sure there’ll be plenty to keep everyone happy in Barcelona.

Do not forget to visit the center of Barcelona’s old city with the Gothic Quarter, a maze of narrow medieval streets packed with intriguing shops and cafés surrounding the Cathedral de la Seu, where you will find Roman ruins and Gothic structures. Architecture buffs can’t miss Antoni Gaudí’s modernist structures, like Casa Batlló, La Pedrera, Park Güell, and his masterpiece, the still-unfinished Sagrada Familia. A walk down La Rambla is an unparalleled way to absorb the city’s energy. This tree-lined pedestrian street starts near Plaça de Catalunya and ends at Rambla de Mar, by the water. Find newsstands, souvenir kiosks, street performers and sidewalk cafés along La Rambla, and stop at La Boquería, a magnificent food market, for a bite to eat. Head to Plaça d’Espanya, a grand square built the 1929 International Exhibition, to be welcomed by the Venetian Towers. Nearby, the Font Mágica de Montjuïc provides a beautiful spectacle of dancing fountains, lights and music in the evenings with the Palau Nacional in the background. For soccer fans, taking a tour of Camp Nou, home of Barcelona FC, is a must.
