Barcelona is everything you need in a holiday location, from its seven stunning beaches to world famous architecture and wonderfully rich Michelin star cuisine it’s a city that leaves you wanting more. Set on the coast in the north east of Spain, it is the capital of Catalonia, a region of Spain which borders on Andorra and France. The people of Barcelona are fiercely proud of their Catalonian location which makes the city a hive of activity with passionate locals who want to show tourists the best of what Catalonia has to offer.
The city was a blank canvas for Antoni Guadi, a Barcelona based architect, who created multiple monuments across the city which have made Barcelona a cornerstone of architectural modernism.
His most famous construction is the Sagrada Familia, a Roman Catholic church which remains unfinished since construction started in 1866. The awe-inspiring structure is unmissable and its shadow looms large over the streets of Barcelona with its soon to be tallest element of the church reaching over 172 metres tall.
Once you’ve basked in the beauty of Sagrada, head towards the coast and the world famous La Rambla, the city’s most famous street. La Rambla is a pedestrian heavy street running for three quarters of a mile just off the coast. Broken up into five sections, it is a bustling city which is over flowing with first class restaurants and classic Spanish cuisine. Street performers line the busy pavements and whatever time you visit you’ll be able to admire a human statue or a mind-blowing magic trick. La Rambla really epitomises Barcelona life and this one street will tell you everything you need to know about a wonderful city. Due to it being such a popular area expect a lot of fellow tourists trying to soak in the La Rambla culture.
After La Rambla why not pick up some local tapas, ranging from a couple of Euros to over a hundred. Tapas is the personification of Catalan cuisine, these bite sized goodies can be found everywhere you turn, with tapas bars on every corner, why not dive in.
Finally, after your fun filled day, finish it off in Barcelona’s exclusive nightlife. Barcelona may not be known for its nightlife, but that may just be one of its best kept secrets. Due to the vast array of different people across the city you can be sure to find a bar or club to suit you. From classy cocktail bars such as Dry Martini found in the Eixample district to dynamic nightclubs such as Universal found in Sant Gervasi, dance and drink the night away.
