Barcelona has witnessed throughout its history the visit and influence of Iberians, Carthaginians, Romans, Visigoths, Muslims… a grounding that yields a rich legacy, both culturally and historically, which makes the city one of the favourite destinations in Spain. Book a room in one of our Barcelona hotels and dive into its charms wandering around through its street life.
What to visit
Barcelona has got so many interesting corners and culturally valuable sites that discovering them all is an incredible challenge. We have prepared a selection of unmissable sites for you to get the most of your stay in one of our hotels in Barcelona and enjoy the true essence of the city.
Barrio Gótico (Gothic Quarter) and Las Ramblas: Street walking enjoying the flower stalls, mime artists, street plays and hotels is quite an experience. In your stroll you can visit La Boquería fresh food market and El Liceu theater, while your feet take you to the Gothic Quarter, which preserves the charms of medieval Barcelona.
Sagrada Familia Cathedral, visible almost from any point in Barcelona centre, is one of the most representative monuments in the city. Unmistakably different from anything else, unfinished, its works started in 1882 under the supervision of Antonio Gaudí. Sagrada Familia is a good starting point to our tour around Modernist Barcelona, whose most identifiable buildings are La Pedrera, Casa Batlló, Palau de la Música or les Punxes. Our visit ends in Güell Park, which extends over an area of 42 ac. full of pure modernist essence.
Tibidabo and Montjuic areas offer exceptional views over Barcelona cityline and they are city’s highest points, aside of urban parks beautifully cared after. In Montjuic we can visit some of the best museums of the city, and also Poble Espanyol and Barcelona 1992 facilities. Also in this area will find a great amount of hotels in Barcelona.
What to eat
No visit to the Condal City, a nickname for Barcelona, can be considered a complete one if you do not eat a good Escudella i Carn d’Olla, a Botifarra amb Monjetes or Arroz a la Cazuela (pot rice). For dessert, you can have Catalonian cream or Mel i Mato and to drink, a white Penedés wine. You will find a magnificent selection of local food products in any of our hotels in Barcelona, to enjoy Catalonian cuisine.
