Hotels in Barcelona, Spain
- your base to discover the city.
You don't have to look hard for things to do in Barcelona
; some of the city's best attractions are outside in plain sight. An unceasing sea of people strolls down the tree-lined Ramblas as those most odd of Barcelona artforms - the human statue - stand still; Modernist architecture astonishes as Gaudi's buildings create dream-like urban tableaus; and, of course, this quintessential Catalonian city borders on the Mediterranean Sea.
With both a strong Catalan identity and a cosmopolitan feel, this vibrant, progressive city holds a unique position in Spain. Squeeze every minute out of your time here, from tapas at sunset to clubbing till dawn. Book early or look for last minute hotel deals during high festival season - Barcelona has many. Try the underground bars in the Barri Gòtic or see the famous paintings in the Picasso Museum. Day-trip possibilities also abound, from Monsterrat, the mountaintop monastery, to the stunning beach of Sitges. Use car rental services in Barcelona
to get you there.
