Why go to Barcelona

Barcelona holidays really do have it all. If you can't decide between a beach-going short break, a hiking holiday or a cultural trip in 2020, you don't have to in Barcelona.

The bohemian barrios of Barcelona

Most major cities boast about the charms of their different neighbourhoods, but a trip to Barcelona prove its main barrios really are distinct.

In 1714, the Old City was walled in after Catalonia picked the wrong side in the War of Spanish Succession. Only in the late 19th century did Barcelona expand naturally. Then, the modern, wide boulevards of Eixample were constructed, connecting the old barrios of El Born and Gotic to what were then separate towns, Sants and Gracía The latter is one of the city's main bohemian outposts, and proud of it.
