Barcelona travel

A visual city with elegance and sophistication. A contrast of medieval and modern with five Barcelona buildings designated as World Heritage Sites. Museums, art galleries and architecturally significant streets and squares are all to be explored. Most people stay near the Ramblas or in the Gothic Quarter.

A good place from which to explore the city including Gaudi's masterpiece, the unfinished Sagrada Família Cathedral, and Parc Güell.

There are plenty of cafés and restaurants around the Ramblas along with shopping. The funicular up to Tibidabo, or the cable car up Montjuïc provide views of Barcelona. Barcelona is a coastal city with four kilometres of beaches. Spring is a good time to visit Barcelona with temperatures around 20 degrees. During summer, it can become hot and humid and crowded.
