Why should you visit Barcelona?

As a major tourist attraction, many are drawn to Barcelona. Particularly in the summer months, when the weather is at its warmest. There is a magic about the culture and atmosphere that is difficult to come by at home, because you become so accustomed to it, you ignore cultural quirks after awhile.

You can’t ignore it in Barcelona though. If you are not much of a traveller, spend more time on the internet playing on partypoker, or watching your favourite TV show then you might have difficulty picking a holiday destination. Here us out. Why should you pick Barcelona?

The beach – You will never be too far from the water when you visit Barcelona. The beach front vibe is very different to the hustle and bustle of other parts of the city. The sand is soft and clear, the view picturesque. Nothing beats the refreshing sea breeze after a day out in the city.

Tapas – We are sure you have tried tapas, but nothing compares to that available in Barcelona. You can walk into a restaurant, a bar, or a café anywhere across the city, and it will no doubt serve tapas. You can enjoy a full feast, or simply snack on a small bowl with a relaxing drink. The perfect pick-me-up after a morning of sight seeing.

Shopping – For many of you, shopping is no laughing matter. Luckily, shopping isn’t in Barcelona either. From the quirky boutiques in the Barri Gothic, to the designer labels scattered across the centre. We have it all.

History – You can find one of the most extensive Picasso collections at the Museu Picasso de Barcelona. The perfect spot for the art student, and others who appreciate world culture. Or perhaps you can walk through the city and lap up the presence of architect, Antoni Gaudi. His influence is felt within the unique walls of the city. Check out the Casa Museu Gaudi along Passeig de Gracia, for some of his finest work.
