Why go to Barcelona

Packed with quirky architecture, an enigmatic nightlife and enviable cultural riches, Barcelona city breaks really do have it all. If you can't decide between a short beach break, a hiking holiday or a gallery-hopping culture trip, you don't have to in Barcelona.

Looks don’t deceive in Barcelona – they’re the first insight into what makes this city so special. Ancient, Art Nouveau and everything in-between, the Catalan capital is a trove of sublime architecture. From the medieval streets of the Gothic Quarter to the surreal spires of Gaudí’s iconic Sagrada Familia in Eixample, some come for Barcelona’s breath-taking buildings alone.

But the famous architect isn’t the only genius to leave a lasting mark on the city. From Picasso and Miro to Cruyff and Messi, Barcelona’s inimitable style has been carefully crafted by a host of greats. A centre for art and design, both Picasso and Miro have museums here, while the MACBA contemporary art museum shows off some of the world’s great modern works. For a different sort of masterpiece, you can still watch Messi create magic at the Camp Nou.
