What to do in Barcelona?
- Barcelona’s city design makes it great for long walks. Go to Las Ramblas, its most popular walkway, packed with street performers.
- Visit the Gothic Quarter or Barri Gòtic to admire architectural gems that date back to medieval times.
- Stroll through miles of beachfront boardwalks. Barcelona’s open and relaxed beaches are world-renowned!
- View the city’s amazing landscape from atop the Montjüic hill, a perfect lookout point in the center of Barcelona, which was also the venue for important events, such as the 1929 Barcelona Universal Exposition and the Olympic Games in 1902.
- Escape to Gràcia or El Poble-sec neighbourhoods to discover the restaurants and bars the locals enjoy.
Walk around the city and spot all of Antoni Gaudí’s instantly-recognizable designs. The famous architect’s legacy includes the “skull and bones” balconies of the Casa Batlló, Park Güell and the massive, yet unfinished Sagrada Familia Cathedral, the most-visited attraction in all of Barcelona.
When to visit Barcelona
Barcelona sees the most tourists during Holy Week in April and the Christmas holiday period. Summers tend to draw a lot of tourist too, so you if you want to avoid the crowds, visit Barcelona between October and March. During September, the city celebrates the annual festival La Mercè, which features music, performers, and a signature parade of papier maché figures.
