What to Know Before Your City Break to Barcelona

The city’s rich cultural history can be seen in its iconic architecture and museums, from the Middle Ages through Modernism. Famous for tapas bars, molecular gastronomy, and great gin and tonics, Barcelona will also leave you wanting for little at meal time.

  • 1. Architectural Wonders

    From Gothic churches to city parks, there is one man who has stamped his unique style on Barcelona. Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi’s contributions are seen throughout the city. Be sure to visit the church of Sagrada Familia, Park Guell, and Casa Batlló.

  • 2. Gastronomy

    Some of molecular gastronomy's greatest chefs, like Albert Adria and Carles Abellan, call this city home. Book a table at one of several restaurants to experience their unique interpretations of the best the land and Mediterranean Sea have to offer.

  • 3. Nightlife

    Recently Barcelona has toned down its reputation as an all-night destination, opting to project a more laid-back approach. Whether you're looking to hit the club or not, however, your evenings can always get off to a great start with a gin and tonic, glass of wine, and accompanying tapas.

  • 4. Getting Around

    The city's public transportation is excellent. An integrated fare system means you can easily get correctly ticketed for travel across Barcelona's buses, trams, and metros.
