Exciting things to do in Barcelona

Exciting things to do in Barcelona

It’s hard to put the camera down in a city that boasts an attraction around nearly every corner. Barcelona holidays deliver romance, family activities and enticing traditions for every type of traveller.

  • The bucket list shot in Barcelona is Gaudí’s Sagrada Familia. Famously under construction since 1882, the unfinished basilica features lifts and stairs to climb to the top for panoramic views.
  • Narrow alleyways lead you on a journey through time in the Gothic Quarter. Along with artsy bars and quirky shops, discover Barcelona Cathedral, Plaça Reial and the Jewish Quarter.
  • The whimsical Casa Batlló is a Gaudí masterpiece straight from a fairy tale. The balconies and pillars resemble skulls and bones with marine-inspired shapes and colours throughout.
  • A visit to the Palace of Catalan Music offers much more than world-class concerts. The majestic exterior boasts mosaics and sculptures. Inside, tiled pillars, stained glass and a crystalline skylight also wow audiences.
  • With its rippling stone facade, Casa Milà is a striking sight. Gaudí’s last work of civic architecture features extraordinary elements like chimney pots shaped as medieval knights.
  • Home to the legendary FC Barcelona, Camp Nou stadium is an unmissable attraction for football fans. Watch a match and be prepared for the roar of massive crowds.
  • A colourful jumble of fruits, vegetables, cheeses and seafood spills from food stalls at Mercat de la Boqueria. The famous market is the perfect spot for traditional snacks and foodie souvenirs.
  • Built between 1329 and 1384, the Basilica Santa Maria del Mar is widely perceived as Barcelona’s best example of Catalonian Gothic architecture. Go inside to admire the soaring ceiling and stained glass windows.
  • The romantic street lamps of Gaudí Avenue lead to Recinto Modernista de Sant Pau. The Art Nouveau complex once housed an innovative hospital. Tour the unique pavilions to see mosaics, gargoyles and international knowledge centres.
  • Discover a huge collection of Catalan art dating back to the Middle Ages, along with Romanesque frescoes at the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya.

  • The Picasso Museum highlights Pablo Picasso’s important relationship with Barcelona. Over 4,000 works contribute to the permanent collection spread across five palaces.
  • With 360 degree views over the city below, stunning scenery contradicts the notorious history of Montjuïc Castle. Explore the old military fortress surrounded by lush gardens.
  • Built for the 1920 World Exhibition, Poble Espanyol is an open-air museum showcasing a little bit of everything Spanish. See architecture from around the country, local crafts and artisan workshops.
  • You simply can’t miss the Columbus Monument at the ocean end of bustling Las Ramblas. The 60-metre high column was constructed in 1888 to pay homage to the famous explorer.
  • Located in the Royal Shipyards, the Maritime Museum takes you back in time to Barcelona’s mighty seafaring history. You’ll see a full-scale replica of Don Juan de Austria’s 16th-century flagship and antique navigation charts.
