Explore Barcelona

From food to fashion to architecture to art, a Barcelona holiday offers something for everyone. Some tourists come to dine at nearby El Bulli, some come to experience the sheer wonder of Gaudi’s buildings, but very few leave disappointed. Picasso spent his formative years here, so a visit to the Museu Picasso in trendy El Born is a must. From here, head to the Sagrada Familia, visited by over 2.5 million tourists each year, or perhaps to Eixample to see the work of the Modernistas. If you need a break from all this culture, stop for a cold glass of sangria at an outdoor bar or café, or perhaps hit the stores of local Spanish labels like Mango, Zara and Custo Barcelona. When it’s time to refuel, head for La Rambla, one of the world’s most famous streets and home to the remarkable Mercat de la Boqueria, often known simply as La Boqueria. Here, you can eat and shop like the locals do – just be sure to try the tapas at Bar Pinotxo and one of the incredible freshly squeezed juices at the neighbouring stalls. It’s worth noting that breakfast in Spain is small and not particularly nutritious, so choosing self-catering accommodation in Barcelona will mean you can save your euros for the main food event of the day – lunch.

When to go to Barcelona

If you’re planning to hit the beach at Barceloneta, time your holiday in Barcelona to coincide with sun – but avoid August, when clever locals leave and make way for hordes of overheating tourists. June and September offer happy medium. If sand isn’t your thing, you’re likely to find chilly but sunny weather in January or February, when there are also fewer crowds.

Getting to and around Barcelona

All flights to Barcelona arrive at its only airport, Barcelona International Airport in El Prat de Llobregat, located 10km outside of the city. However, some low cost airlines advertise Barcelona flights landing at Reus and Girona-Costa Brava, both of which are approximately 100km from Barcelona. Once you arrive, the Barcelona Bus Turístic links all of the major Barcelona tourist attractions, while the metro rail system offers a fast and comprehensive way to get around the city.
