With Gaudi’s spectacular creations, the magnificent Gothic Quarter and the world-famous La Rambla, this dynamic Spanish city is instantly recognisable. But scratch beneath the surface and there is so much more to spirited Barcelona. Hunt out bargains at the city’s oldest flea market, Els Encants, or get lost in the labyrinth park of Horta. For a real taste of life as a local, head to Santa Caterina Market and pick up some ham, olives, cheese and wine and have yourself a picnic, or pitch up outside a tapas bar and delight your taste buds with traditional delicacies.
Barcelona City Breaks
Our Travel Experts just love Barcelona. From the perpetually unfinished Sagrada Familia, to the Grinch-esque buildings of the majestic Park Güell, to the blissfully sandy beach. And then there’s the tapas – it’d be sacrilege to visit this popular city and not gorge yourself on small plates, with a side dish of seafood paella of course. However you want to spend your city break, we’ll pair up the most centrally located hotels with the best, most conveniently timed flights, so all you have to worry about is exploring.
