Visit Barcelona

A jewel of a seaside town on the eastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula; Barcelona is a heady mix of dramatic architecture, a vibrant city life, glorious weather and delicious food.


Breathtaking Architecture
The culture of Barcelona is a unique one in Europe and this reflects perfectly in the architecture of the city. Barcelona has been home to many great visionaries, none bigger than the man that defined an entire movement - Antoni Gaudi and the Modernisme school of design. Numerous stunning examples of his work are scattered throughout the city - from the iconic Sagrada Familia and the familiar Park Guell to the wavy Casa Mila and the whimsical Casa Batlo. With palm tree-lined city squares, boardwalked beaches, towering churches and historical houses all within a walk's reach of each other, Barcelona truly is one of the most stunning cities in the world.

Delicious Food
Barcelona has more restaurants per square capita than any other city in Europe. Famous all over the world for its culinary scene, Barcelona is renowned for its paella, jamón, amazing tapas bars and for having the freshest seafood in the world. The settings are equally breathtaking, with outdoor paella restaurants that serve food on the beach to elegant Art Nouveau restaurants and street cafes and bars.

Gracious Geography
Located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, Barcelona has been gifted with a climate that sees that city stay pleasant throughout the year. This makes it extremely popular amongst tourists and groups of them can be found queuing up at attractions throughout the year. If it gets too hot, there's always a beach to relax at while you go dipping in the sea. If you've had your fill of that, you can head to the Collserola hills on the outskirts of the city and enjoy a peaceful hike.

Vibrant Citylife
Life in Barcelona moves at its own speed - with the rush of a storm and the billow of a breeze all rolled in one. The relaxed pace of a seaside town finds itself neighboring the cosmopolitan ways of a modern city in Barcelona, of course, intermingled with generous offerings of the chic and bohemian. No day feels true without a siesta while the sun shines hard in the afternoon, no sunset feels complete without a sangria in hand at a beachside chiringuito (bar) and no night comes to a close without spending time with friends and loved ones at a tapas bar.
