Cheap flights, accommodation, holidays and city breaks to Barcelona
Set between the mountains and the sea. Summer is serious party time, with week-long fiesta fun. But year-round the city sizzles – it’s always on the biting edge of architecture, food, fashion, style, music and good times. A weekend break to Barcelona just never seems long enough, and leaves you longing to return.
Wander through the warren of streets of Barri Gotic, explore the 19th century ‘new’ Barcelona of Gaudi and ramble down the Ramblas, a tree-lined boulevard packed with buskers and mime artists, or stroll to the seafront and walk along the beaches. Even a short break to Barcelona shows you that it hasn’t forgotten its proud history and it is the blend of diverse cultures, exciting 21st century activities and the Mediterranean Sea that make a city break to Barcelona top of the list for many.
Barri Gòtic, the enchanting centre of old Barcelona, is a maze of dark streets crammed with cafes and bars where you can rest your weary feet. Spend a day wandering among wonderful, medieval buildings and some of the most awe-inspiring architecture ever to leave a draughtsman’s desk. A masterpiece of its medieval heritage, the Barri Gòtic’s cathedral, is one of Spain’s greatest Gothic buildings and is a must see during your city break to Barcelona. The quarter is centred on the Placa de Sant Jaume, a spacious square with a busy market and one of the venues for the weekly dancing of the sardana.
The architecture of the eccentric genius Gaudi will take your breath away and Barcelona’s art collections, with significant works by Picasso and Miró, will leave you in awe. The city’s museums run all sorts of activities, from temporary exhibitions to itineraries and workshops, creating fascinating ways to discover both their historic and contemporary collections. Trying to see it all in one short break to Barcelona is nearly impossible. Take your time in each, and vow to come back for another short break to Barcelona soon.
