Why you should go
Capital of the country’s Catalan community and Spain’s second largest city, Barcelona is the perfect destination for both city breakers and sun seekers, with an array of things to see and do. How can anyone turn down a trip to a destination with unbeatable food, charming bars, cultural hubs and endless amounts of summer sunshine?
For those looking for some city centre hustle and bustle, packed full of restaurants and bars is Las Ramblas, but if you fancy taking in some medieval architecture, take a trip to the Barri Gótic (Gothic Quarter). Speaking of architecture, Barcelona is known for spectacular building designs by the likes of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Motaner – visit Gaudí’s unfinished church of the Sagrada Família which has been under construction since 1882!
With 10% of the city covered by parks, it’s a no-brainer to spend some time outdoors when visiting Barcelona. For impressive surroundings and incredible city views, take the trip up to the Gaudí masterpiece that is Park Güell. Football fans should also check out the FC Barcelona Museum and of course, Camp Nou.
When you should go
High season in Barcelona is usually from June to August where you can catch the hottest and driest weather. However, Barcelona is a great destination to visit all year round – regular events and festivals such as Fiesta de La Mercé and the Three Kings Parade bring the city to life outside of the summer months.
Where you should stay
First-timers should look to stay in central locations such as the Gothic Quarter and around Las Ramblas for easy and convenient transport links. It’s all hip and happening in the bohemian region of El Raval but for a more budget-friendly location, try downtown Barcelona in accommodation around Plaza Catalunya.
Why not discover some of Barcelona’s best kept secrets? There’s plenty of them!
- Eyescream and Friends – ice cream cones are a thing of the past! Try some original shaved gelato complete with toppings and googly eyes, located right on Barceloneta beach.
- Sónar Festival – for electronic music lovers, Sónar Festival is not to be missed. Held for three days in July at multiple locations across the city, it’s certainly an event where you’ll need your dancing shoes at the ready.
- Quimet I Quimet – named as one of the best tapas bars in Barcelona by the Guardian, this bustling bodega is one to have on your list of things to do. Indulge in authentic croquetas and international cheeses for a true taste of Catalonian cuisine.
