When we talk about complete tourist destinations, Barcelona would be top of that list. The Catalan capital is pure beauty, not only thanks to its excellent weather all year long but also to its architecture, beaches, streets, squares… Renting apartments in Barcelona is a perfect way to discover the city as you would be doing so just like the locals do.[See more]
The best of Barcelona
If there is one name that is synonymous to Barcelona that is the one of the modernist architect Antoni Gaudí, a visionary and a genius that changed the appearance of Barcelona and its buildings, with landmarks such as the Sagrada Familia, Parc Güell, Casa Batlló or Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera. The two last ones are located on the famous Passeig de Gràcia avenue, an avenue escorted by trees and modernist buildings on either side, not only by Gaudí but also by other architects of his time, definitely a must-see. Passeig de Gràcia ends where the most famous avenue in Barcelona starts; the Ramblas, where you can also find the world-famous market of La Boquería. Gastronomy is a huge part of Barcelona thanks to its great Mediterranean cuisine and tapas restaurants that you can find all over the city.
The best districts in Barcelona
The Ramblas is located in the old town, a district divided into three parts: Raval, Gothic Quarter and Born. Raval stands out for its cosy cafes and bars as well as for its famous contemporary art museum MACBA; the Gothic Quarter for its old medieval streets and the city’s Cathedral whilst Born is famous for being Barcelona’s bohemian corner, one of the best places to find cheap apartments in Barcelona where you can also visit the Picasso Museum. Also, the district of Gràcia in the northern part of the city is also a place to enjoy the true essence of the city outside of the tourist hustle, also the location of the famous Gràcia Festival in the summer.
When to come to Barcelona
Barcelona is great to visit all year long but it stands out especially in spring and autumn, when there are less tourists and the weather is milder. Although rain appears spontaneously, it’s still the best time to visit..
Getting in and around Barcelona
You can fly directly to Barcelona-El Prat airport, just a few miles away from the city, or to the nearby Girona and Reus airports, where low-cost airlines fly. The city has a fantastic public transport network, one of the best in Europe, cheap and efficient, with metros, buses and taxis as well as an excellent tourist bus that will take you to all the important landmarks. Buy the combined transport tickets and you’ll save a lot of money during your holidays in Barcelona.
Festivals in Barcelona
The city is perfect to visit during its festivals, such as La Mercè in September, the aforementioned Gràcia Festival in August or Sant Jordi on April 23rd, as well as important music festivals such as Sonar and Primavera Sound.
