BARCELONA is a world known city with incredible modernist architecture, stunning beaches mixed perfectly with a cosmopolitan city full of shops, and a massive drinking and dining scene.

Iconic dish

Pan tumaca (Bread with tomato) and Calçots (grilled green onions).

In the city

Swim in La Barceloneta beach, visit Jardins del Mirador or Bunkers del Carmel for one of the best views. Caixa Forum is a eclectic, contemporary art show program on display in striking, art nouveau former textile factory. Because the Catalan art is more than Gaudi, at Fundacio Joan Miro you will enjoy this also international artist.

Kids

For relaxing the afternoon in an amusement park Tibidabo is your best option and for stronger emotions Port Aventura around 2 hours from Barcelona. Bosc Urba (Urban forest) offers Zip lines, lianas, bungee jumping, bridges, adventure trunk located on platforms over 6 meters, etc.

Charge your batteries

For tapas: El Born neighbourhood with Casa Delfin as our recommendation, and in Barrio de Gracia the bars Gasterea and Barravas are a must. There are more options like La boqueria market in Las Ramblas where you will be surrounded by fresh and colourful Spanish products.
