Guide for places to stay in Barcelona
Falling in love with Barcelona is easy to do. Boasting a rich cultural heritage and a soulful atmosphere, the capital of Catalunya is perfectly capable of pleasing the most demanding of travelers. The city happens to offer an impeccable balance between delightful seaside attractions and striking cultural sights, which are framed by lush verdant park spaces. Not to mention its expressive cuisine —heavy in super-fresh seafood and olive oil — and stunning landscapes shaped by Antoni Gaudí’s architectural jewels.
Best time to visit
Travel to the city from March to June, and September to October. During this time of year, the pleasant weather will help you experience the finest attractions in Barcelona!
When visiting Barcelona, travelers usually fly into the El Prat Airport, which is placed 13km from the city center. Fortunately, the airport offers direct access to Barcelona by both train and bus. The Aerobus runs between 5 and 10 minutes and can be caught from outside both Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. You can also opt for the RENFE train service, which runs approximately every 30 minutes to the city center.
Places to visit
Park Güell: A picturesque park that is spread within more than 17 hectares. Bonus? Well, Park Güell sits atop Carmel Hill and happens to offer the most amazing views of the city!
Casa Batlló: Another must-visit Gaudi masterpiece is Casa Batlló, with its colorful stained glass windows and quaint curvy shapes.
La Sagrada Família: A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005. With 18 monumental spires rising grandly above the city’s landscape, the basilica has been under construction since 1882 and is Barcelona’s most visited landmark. From its luscious exterior walls, which are heavily ornate, to its whimsical colorful interiors that evoke a forest, everything about La Sagrada Família is magical.
Barri Gòtic: For uncovering the secrets of Medieval Barcelona, immerse yourself in the historic Barri Gòtic (Gothic Quarter), located in the Ciutat Vella district. While roaming around its narrow cobblestoned streets, you’ll be able to spot remnants of ancient Roman buildings, medieval walls, and neo-Gothic constructions.
Las Ramblas: A lovely tree-lined pedestrian street that stretches from Plaça de Catalunya to the Christopher Columbus Monument, at Port Vell. During your tour, just don’t forget to drop by the Mercado de La Boqueria, a large public market filled with food stalls that will surely captivate your senses.
Palau de la Música Catalana: One of the finest samples of Catalan Art Nouveau designed by Lluís Domènech I Montaner.
Casa Milà (La Pedrera): Placed in Passeig de Gràcia, this is the last private residence designed by Antoni Gaudí.
La Barceloneta Beach: Tucked away into the fishing quarter of the same name, Barceloneta, this 422 meters long-beach is a welcoming retreat for both locals and travelers who are seeking to spend a day under the sun. It can’t get any better than that!
