Barcelona travel guide
Located along the northeast shores of the Iberian Peninsula, Barcelona is the second largest city in Spain. Diverse and multi-faceted, this bustling city centre and tourist hotspot is alive with a rich history and cultural heritage. There are two official languages in Barcelona: Catalan and Spanish (the official language of Spain), and English is both widely understood and spoken. A proud supporter of the arts, there are plenty of interesting and exciting things to do, see, and discover during your stay in this magnificent city facing the Mediterranean Sea.

Barcelona is the perfect place to stroll hand in hand while enjoying the beautiful Picasso Museum, the Barcelona zoo, and the walking tours through Ciutat Vella (Old Town). In addition, you can feast your eyes on, and purchase succulent fresh seafood, delicious fresh fruit, and other local fare at Barcelona’s prized Boqueria Market; enjoy wine tasting trips through Barcelona’s vineyards, delight in cozy picnics in one of its 68 municipal parks, or frolic on the golden, sandy beach, said to be the best urban beach in the world.

If you have been looking for a way to show your kids a great time while providing a valuable learning experience, Barcelona allows you to check both off your list. A city of culture and entertainment, entire families will take pleasure in excursions to Barcelona’s word-class museums, art galleries, music venues and concert halls. And, with its world-renowned aquarium and IMAX theatre, as well as its zoo, petting farm, and water parks, fun and excitement will be had by all!

Barcelona held the world’s attention when it hosted the successful 1992 Summer Olympics, and with its long-standing sporting tradition, Barcelona will captivate the hearts of sports aficionados and adventure seekers alike. Catch a football (soccer) game at Camp Nou, the largest stadium in Europe and home to FC Barcelona, the current UEFA football champions. Or, if your ideal vacation comes with a rush of adrenaline, catch a thrill ziplining and parasailing on the beach, or quad biking and karting. From paintball to kayaking, jet skiing, and snorkelling, countless outdoor activities abound in and around the city of Barcelona.

No matter what you are looking for – art, culture, cuisine, shopping, sports and/or outdoor activities – Barcelona has it all. And, like many major European cities, its fast and efficient Metro system will let you and do it all!
