Barcelona, Spain

Long stretches of sandy beaches, warm weather and friendly locals are to be enjoyed in the second most popular city in Spain. A culture that dates back over 2000 years gives unique meaning to the various live music and theatre performances available throughout the city and for those who enjoy sports; Barcelona often hosts the Summer Olympics. It is one of the most visited cities in Europe and is quickly catching up legendary capitals such as Paris or Rome.

Barcelona’s main landmark is the imposing Sagrada Familia cathedral, one of Gaudí’s most impressive work. Since Gaudí’s tragic death, the magnificent building is continued to be built by several architects following Gaudí’s original plans and should be completed by 2026.

It is now possible to admire the cathedral from the inside, and when the sunset light filters through the stained glass, the magic atmosphere is unrivalled. Gaudí has left some beautiful monuments all over the cities, including the superb Parc Güell and the fanciful Casa Batllò and Pedrera, proudly standing along the elegant avenue of Passeig de Gracia.

Modernism is an important part of Barcelona’s charms, but certainly not the only one.

Your Barcelona visit would not be complete without a stroll through the inspiring cobblestone streets of the Gothic Quarter, the Born, and the picturesque Rambla with its street artists and shops.

At the bottom of the Rambla, the Maremagnum mall is an ideal place to unwind shop or have a drink by the sea, and then continue to the fishermen quarter of la Barceloneta. Barcelona possesses a long sandy beach on more than 4 km, and the metropolis was elected as the best beach city in the world by National Geographic. From a delicious seafood dinner by the sea to an active paddle surf course, there are options for all visitors.

For a marvelous view of the city from above, the mountains of Montjuic or Tibidabo are the perfect option. Montjuic is easily accessible from the city center and feature tourist and cultural attractions such as the Poble Espanyol, the 1992 Olympic Games facilities and some excellent museums, including the Fundació Miró, the Archaeological Museum of Catalonia and National Art Museum of Catalonia. Right at the foot of Montjuic is the magic fountain, a truly spectacular interaction of light, water, motion, color and music and the perfect end to an unforgettable trip in one of the most inspiring cities in the world
