Arty Barcelona is a superb destination for short breaks and longer holidays alike, thanks to its fascinating cultural attractions, gorgeous sandy beaches, and mild, sunny climate. This Spanish city really is a unique destination, with plenty to keep visitors busy for days or even weeks on end.
Barcelona has a huge range of accommodation to offer too. From historic hotels in La Rambla, Barcelona, the city’s best-known street, to Barcelona beach hotels, there are properties in this city to suit the pockets and requirements of everyone.
With nearly 30 Blue Flag beaches, the Costa de Barcelona has an abundance of golden sands and clear blue waters. The city itself boasts over three miles of broad, sunny beaches, where visitors and locals can swim, soak up the sun and mingle.
Beyond the shores, hotels in Barcelona city centre afford guests easy access to numerous attractions. Antoni Gaudi is probably the city’s most famous son, and the works of the iconic artist can be seen all over it. His architecture is unlike anything produced by other artists, and the best examples in Barcelona include Parc Guell and Casa Mila, as well as the still unfinished Sagrada Familia.
Some Barcelona hotels feature their own swimming pools, making them an ideal place to stay during the summer, while other smaller properties can make for an authentically Spanish getaway.
Whichever kind of hotel you opt for, the food in this part of Catalonia will delight everyone. Tapas, tortilla (Spanish Omelette) and paella are probably Spain’s most famous foodie exports, and because of the city’s proximity to the sea, there is plenty of delicious fresh seafood and fish on offer, as well as delicious dishes flavoured with paprika-rich chorizo.
Wherever in this beautiful city you decide to stay, there is always lots to do. Take an open-top bus tour around the districts and hop off and on as you like. Discover the Olympic village, created to host the 1992 Olympic Games - as well as to regenerate a formerly run-down part of town.
Barcelona also has a great array of museums, as well as a busy, ever-changing programme of cultural events to enjoy. This Spanish destination really does tick every box, with beaches, shopping, culture, history and art at every turn, as well as fabulous food and drink.
