Hola, barcelona

Impressive architecture and hip restaurants meet a sunny Spanish climate and beautiful beaches. This has transformed Barcelona, in just a few decades, from a rough port city into one of Europe's — if not the world's — premier destinations. Stroll along La Rambla and Passeig de Gràcia, admire Gaudí's masterpieces, visit the colourful Market of La Boqueria, lose yourself in the Gothic Quarter, bask in the sun at Barceloneta beach, and discover some of the city's vibrant late-night haunts while you're at it.

Beaches: Barceloneta, Mar Bella & Bogatell

Two of Barcelona's most popular beaches, Mar Bella & Bogatell are just a few minutes apart. Mar Bella is a naturist and gay-friendly beach, while Bogatell is known for volleyball and sunbathing. Both are located within walking distance of trendy bars and restaurants. However, the most popular beach in Barcelona is Barceloneta, mainly for its proximity to the city centre. Visited by tourists and locals, particularly as an after-work spot, Barceloneta Beach stretches from the Hotel Vela on the harbour-side for around 2 kilometres up to the Hotel Arts on the Puerto Olimpíco. Between these two landmarks, the fine sands and the beach promenade are particularly inviting for cyclists, joggers, and inline skaters.

Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art – MACBA

Escape the hustle and bustle of Barcelona and check out the fascinating MACBA - a museum of contemporary art featuring Spanish and Catalonian art from the 20th century. It's a must-see for anyone interested in local art and culture, as well as international works on display in rotating exhibitions.

View — The Bunkers

The Bunker, located at the top of Rovira in the Carmel neighbourhood is one of the few “secret” places in Barcelona, not overtaken by tourists yet. The place consists of the remains of an old air raid civil war bunker built in 1937. It gives you a beautiful 360-degree view of the city and is really nice to visit just before sunset and watch the city come to life at night as the lights turn on.

National Art Museum of Catalonia

The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) hosts many temporary exhibits throughout the year, but it is also known for its Romanesque collection of mural paintings. Here you can also find pieces like Gaudi's furniture or illustration from Casas and other artists of Catalan Modernism.
