Barcelona is one of the best cities in Spain for a great holiday although millions of people visit it annually for one reason or another. There are many things to do and see in Barcelona; the thrills and fun never stop in Barcelona night and day.


Barcelona is very accessible with its well organized local transportation hubs and facilities with El Prat, its main airport, just 13 kilometers from the city center. The city’s bus and train services are very regular from El Prat which makes it so convenient for tourists to come into Barcelona. Day trips and excursions to and from Barcelona are enjoyed by the tourists as well as the locals who want some hours of excitement around or in Barcelona. Alternative airports are available with Girona and Reus where budget and charter flights abound. Hence, it is not surprising to have millions of tourists and locals dropping in on Barcelona all year long.


Barcelona is one of the famous historical sights in Spain; it holds a long history with a varied cultural influence from the Moors to the Re-Conquest. One of the main city attractions is the ancient town, Barri Gótic. It is the old district that is called the Gothic Quarter where a trove of Gothic treasures is found. Many ancient monuments are available which showcase the past history of the Roman influence with its fortified village.

Barcelona is a great city for discovering the history of its past with the well preserved ancient Roman walls with semicircular double towers. The fortified walls run from the Cathedral along the aqueduct which waters the Collserola hills. Here, tourists would enjoy 14th and 15th century monuments with various architectures such as neo-Gothic façade, ogival ribbed vaults and artistic pulpit as well as intrinsic choir stalls.

Three ancient medieval palaces are found in the city Cathedarl with various types of structures like a Renaissance façade or some flamboyant Gothic architecture. There is also the ancient Palau Reial Major monument that sports a bell tower as high as 40 meters with the Ramon Berenguer III statue in the city square. There are numerous palaces, chapels and museums to occupy the tourists during the stay in Barcelona which they would find delightful in appreciating the rich culture of the city and region. There are also numerous festivals which are celebrated here with full vigor and pomp; music, dancing, singing and fireworks fill the streets and air with parades and color.
