Barcelona, Spain

What you need to know when planning a trip to Barcelona.

White sand beaches, remarkable architecture, festivals, seafood, tapas, dance and harmonious music is all that needs to be said to have people racing to catch the next flight to Barcelona.

Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain with a population of over 1.6 million people.

A haven for architects and appreciators of art, Barcelona is home to some of the world’s most marvelous structures. In the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic) stand buildings that date back to the 19th century. The acclaimed Spanish architect, Antonio Gaudi’s work is prominent throughout the city due to his distinctive and individualistic style of architecture. This includes Park Guell where you might see random performances, Palau Guell, Casa Mila and his works on the phenomenal Sagrada Familia. The strong art culture extends to music and the city has a great number of music venues including the world-renowned Gran Teatre del Liceu opera house.

A premier vacation destination, Barcelona hosted the Olympics in 1992. Home to the much loved football team, the Barcelona Football stadium is open for tours and a visit.

Be one of the millions who soak up the sun at one of the city’s seven beaches including The Barcelona Beach that was listed number one out of ten top city beaches.

In line with the vibrant colors seen around the city are the night markets. An array of spices, fruits, vegetables, sweets and meats add an abundance of colors that should not be missed.

As you’d expect from a city located on the Mediterranean coast, seafood is aplenty and the seafood paella, an assortment of marine delicacies with rice is a highly recommended traditional dish. Large selections of Spanish tapas add great variety to any meal.

A lively, pleasurable place for all, Barcelona can be enjoyed simply by walking around, getting on a hop on-hop off tour bus, cruising in the harbor or simply people-watching with a sangria at La Rambla.
