Barcelona - A short Guide

 

The seaport of Barcelona can be found on the northern Mediterranean coast and is known for mixing unique architecture with the modern vibrancy of a typical European city. The beaches blend seamlessly with the lights of the city, while the ports with its numerous yachts and stunning views back over the city offers up a slightly more refined, sleepy atmosphere. The city hosted what is known as the first commercially successful Olympic Games in 1992 and is well known for its central avenue and the Ramblas that is home to quaint bookstalls, flower sellers and having small animals for sale.

 

Barcelona is easy to reach from almost anywhere. You can fly into the Barcelona International airport where you can also easily pick up your hire car, and there are other close by airports like Girona airport that budget airlines such as Ryanair fly to. If you’re using one of these airports we recommend driving yourself to Barcelona as the bus services can be cramped and uncomfortable. If you’re already in Europe and would prefer not to fly you can even get a train via France directly into one of Barcelona’s central rail stations. You can even arrive by sea from Rome, the Balearic Islands, Tangier or from Genoa on Italy’s Ligurian coastline. Of course let’s not forget you can drive there too, quite easily in fact from other parts of Spain and from France.

 

Most people visit Barcelona for one of two reasons - or both, to explore the architecture and to visit what have been voted as some of the best beaches in the world. Lets start with the architecture. The most obvious attractions are those of the Architect Antoni Gaudi and what is the modernist side of Barcelona. Notably the Parc Guell in Gracia, the Sagrada Familia in the Eixample side of town and the houses La Oedrera/ Casa Mila and La Casa Bastllo which are both also in Eixample. It’s possible to take a tour (or arrange your own!) which will take you on foot around the modernist buildings of Barcelona and takes a few hours to fully explore. From the above the most vital for any Gaudi enthusiast to visit is the La Sagrada Familia which is undoubtedly the most famous building in the city - if not in all of Spain. The building’s height and intricate style provides a breathtaking visage that has impressed tourists for decades, despite that fact that it remains unfinished. You’ll find hand shaped columns that offer a skeletal, natural appearance and you’ll be in awe at the sheer scope and grandeur of the building. Do remember that when visiting La Sagrada Familia you will be expected to adhere to a respectable dress code - though this is the same for most churches and holy places throughout Europe.

National Geographic named Barcelona as the number one beach city in the entire world. This alone stands as testament to the beauty and accessibility of the beaches here. You’ll find literally miles of white sand beaches that stretch into the deep blue seas with hundreds of people taking to the waters to swim and indulge in water sports. You can find the odd beach restaurant and bar too, offering up light meals and cocktails. Some notable beaches include Sant Sebastia in the Ciutat Vella district which is popular with locals, Sant Miquel which is one of the busier beaches in the city and Llevant which is the last of the newly created beaches on Barcelona’s seafront - here you can play volleyball and swim close to the city - it also has a close by parking lot so it’s great for families who are driving around the beaches.

 

One way to see it all in Barcelona is to take the cable car over Barcelona which offers up some of the most incredible views of the city. Afterwards, a simple stroll through the streets of the old quarter will highlight the history that can be found in the city’s streets - a history that predates even that of Rome, and then a bite to eat in a beachside restaurant where you can try a typical Catalan Dish such as Escalivada, Arros Negre - black rice, and Conill amb cargols. If you’re there at the right time of year you can even visit one of Barcelona’s many festivals such as the Cavalcada de Reis in January, Revetlla de Sant Joan in June and even the Sonar music festival in June - which is quickly becoming one of Europe’s top electronic music and arts festivals.
