Enjoy the many sides of Barcelona

A holiday in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, is sure to stimulate your senses. From the glorious Modernisme architecture to the tantalising tapas – mingle with locals and search through spectacular markets. Go to the beach and swim in the Mediterranean.

Stroll along the famous La Rambla, where street performers and artists entertain the tourist crowds. Admire the unbelievable architecture which snakes through the city, especially Gaudi’s spellbinding designs. Walk through the mysterious alleyways barrio of La Ribera and the hip El Born, which provide a great contrast to the busy city centre. Sample some delicious Basque pintxo and soak up the atmosphere at La Boqueria market – where dazzling displays of fruit and sweets captivate your imagination. A city with so much going on, Barcelona reflects many generations of art, culture and heritage, but is also a trendsetter of European fashions and music scenes. Our regular flights to Barcelona make it easy to come back time and again.
