Barcelona is one of Spain's most fascinating and vibrant cities, packed full of things to see and do whether you're into culture, history, art, shopping, outdoor pursuits or relaxing in the sun. What makes a holiday in Barcelona particularly appealing is the fact that you can easily mix time spent sightseeing with days at the beaches that line the coast right next to the city.
This makes it the ideal choice if you're keen to explore one of Europe's top cities and head to the seaside in a single trip. If it's beaches you're after, you need to visit the Sant Marti district to recline on its golden sands.
Should you wish to see some of Barcelona's famous architecture, make sure you wander around the Eixample neighbourhood where the Sagrada Familia and Quadrat d'Or are located. Alternatively, spend time in Barri Gotic for a glimpse into the city's fascinating history or stroll down the amazing La Rambla for a spot of retail therapy.
