A long weekend in Barcelona

Whether you want culture or seaside, a conservative or unusual break, Barcelona is an ideal destination for a weekend escape. The greatest artists and architects have left their mark here for the enjoyment of the walker and the inquisitive. Dramatically changed by the Olympics, Barcelona took the opportunity to renovate its dark corners and is now a picturesque and stylish Mediterranean setting. And for some fresh air for the day, hike in the Montseny Natural Park or sunbathe in Sitges to enjoy a change of scene between the sea and the mountains.
Included in your itinerary - Because Barcelona is such a good walking city, we have included priority tickets for three must-see works by Gaudi, an artist intimately linked to the city:
the Sagrada Familia, Casa Mila and Casa Batllo. But to discover the city behind the scenes, we have also included a half-day with an expert guide who knows every corner of Barcelona and will tailor the tour to suit your interests. You can focus on the city's most unfamiliar neighbourhoods, away from the crowds, or embark on a tour of its iconic rooftops. Get to grips with the art galleries, take a tour of the flea market, or (re)discover the city through its street-art. Not forgetting that you'll have access to our local Concierge to satisfy any last minute needs or desires.

Your city accommodation

Ideally located in the heart of Barcelona, halfway between Plaza Catalunya and Passeig de Gracia and within walking distance of the Ramblas, it is one of those small city hotels it is good to have in your address book. This modern hotel has all of the comforts you need for a stay in the city.
The must-see - The outdoor pool on the top floor has a teak surround and sun beds, with a clear view over Barcelona's rooftops.

El Raval - Underground Barcelona

It is one of the most controversial districts in the Catalan capital, but also one of the most interesting. The El Raval district, formerly Barrio Chino, is now undergoing a transformation and is attracting an increasing number of locals and curious visitors, so much so that the Barcelonans have even invented the term 'ravalejar' to describe walking in the neighbourhood. A working-class district, it captivates visitors, generating both fear and intrigue, and it is an important detour to understanding today's Barcelona. Its great wealth lies in its multi-culturalism and avant-gardism (there is the magnificent MACBA, Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art), its lively streets, its artists' workshops and its art galleries.
