Barcelona: A City Where One Week Is Never Enough

Barcelona is a city with a unique vibe, where anyone can find something of interest thanks to the great variety of events, places and cultural sites the city has to offer. What’s more, its Mediterranean climate makes it worth visiting all year around.

A City with unique architecture

Enjoy a beautiful view of the Sagrada Família, the beautiful church designed by Gaudí that is currently under renovation and planned to be finished by 2026 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of the genius architect. Gaudí also designed other iconic locations in the city like the Parc Güell, La Casa Batlló or La Pedrera.

A City with great history

Barcelona was founded by the Romans, and since then has been one of the most important cities in Europe and the world. Walk around the district Ciutat Vella to enjoy the medieval Barcelona and visit its wonderful cathedral, or walk through the streets of El Born or El Raval to enjoy the history of the city from the beginnings of the 20th century.

A City to enjoy outdoors

The proximity of the mountain and the sea make Barcelona special. You can spend the morning on one of the city’s beaches swimming in the Mediterranean sea, and then take the afternoon to hike atop a small mountain to enjoy a breathtaking view of the sunset. Parc de la Ciuatadella also offers great opportunities to relax, as well as Montjuic, the mountain next to the port where you’ll find the Olympic rings and a castle from the 17th century.

Walk down to one of Barcelona’s bars with a great choice of fresh coffee, Spanish beer and different kinds of wine, doors being open for guests from early morning until late at night.

A City known all over the world

Since the Olympic summer games in 1992, Barcelona has been the host of multiple international events; from the Mobile World Congress where you can find out anything and everything about the latest phone technology, to the Primavera Sound and Sònar music festivals, which attracts the best modern bands who come to the city to play their music on the beaches.

A City of sports
