Barcelona is the kind of place where you can stroll arm in arm down elegant boulevards in Eixample, rub shoulders with street performers on Las Ramblas or take in the fresh sea air by the city beach. Choose the right Barcelona vacation package, to enjoy its history, landmarks, & culture in this Summer.
History, Landmarks, & Culture of Barcelona:
Stunning and Unique Architecture
Barcelona is famous around the world for its beautiful architecture. Stroll around the Gothic Quarter to take in the city's medieval masterpieces before fast-forwarding to the modern era and wildly imaginative creations from Antonio Gaudi, like the Sagrada Familia cathedral or Parc Guell. Wherever you look, Barcelona impresses.
The Chance to see Some of the World's Greatest Artworks
If you love art, you'll love Barcelona. Head to the Joan Miro Museum to see the largest collection of works by the modernist master, or check out the Picasso Museum to see works like Las Meninas (after Velazquez) by probably the most famous artist who ever lived.
Fine Food and Boutique Shopping
Barcelona has a thriving, sophisticated food scene, as elite restaurants like Xerta and Moments shows, but you can also pick up delicious street food like Churros con Chocolate (donuts with chocolate). You can also pick up designer goods at boutiques like Prada in Gracia, or shop at the completely different flea market on Las Ramblas.
