Travel Guide Intro

pretitle
Title
Your Complete Guide to Barcelona
Description

The capital of Spain’s Catalonia region effortlessly blends history, culture, modernity, and some of the most incredible food and drinks you’ll ever have. From awe-inspiring 1800s-era architecture to Michelin-starred and globally-recognized cuisine, in addition to lively, walkable neighborhoods and plazas, Barcelona offers a myriad of experiences that cater to every traveler's taste.

 

Pro tip: Make sure to get your Gaudi tickets (Sagrada Familia, Casa Batlló, Park Güell, etc.) in advance because they tend to sell out fast.

Description

In the heart of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter right next to Las Ramblas, Kimpton Vividora Hotel not only offers contemporary luxury in a vibrant and historic setting, but is also walking distance to Barceloneta beach. With a rooftop pool and terrace offering 360-degree views, a spa/wellness room, and three dining concepts (Fauna Restaurant, GOT Coffee & Cocktails, and Terraza de Vivi), this is the perfect base for exploring the city’s culture and treasures.

 

Up on a hill in Montjuic, the Intercontinental Barcelona features elegant rooms, Michelin-starred dining, and breathtaking views of the entire city from 173 Rooftop, a terrace that’s open seasonally. Enjoy Mediterranean fare at Arrel and Quirat, sip a signature cocktail at Gebre, or fuel up on caffeine at Boira Coffee Lounge, all located on the hotel’s ground level. Guests rave about the location, seventh floor rooftop pool, spacious, clean rooms, and the spa (which has a water circuit, dry sauna, hammam, Jacuzzi, gym and six treatment cabins.

 

Inspired by Gaudi and situated in the bustling city center, Hotel Indigo® Barcelona Plaza Catalunya has an outdoor pool, a solarium, and a cocktail and snack bar on-site. The property combines neighborhood-influenced design with local charm, offering comfortable accommodations for an upscale stay. Here, you’ll be close to nearby attractions like Casa Batlló, Sagrada Familia, and La Rambla—and can also enjoy easy access to public transportation.

Description

Sagrada Familia is a breathtaking basilica that combines intricate facades, towering spires, and stunning stained glass windows, making it one of the most iconic landmarks in the world—and no visit to Barcelona is complete without marveling at this Antoni Gaudí masterpiece. The structure is unique for many reasons but especially because it’s taken more than 140 years to complete. Seeing it from outside is spectacular, but if you’re going in make sure to get tickets with access to the towers. 

 

Also designed by Gaudí, Park Güell is a whimsical park that offers panoramic views of the city. Explore its colorful mosaic sculptures, meandering pathways, and lush gardens. Simply put, this is the Disneyland of Barcelona, and will transport you to another time and place. One more Gaudi building you can’t miss is Casa Batlló in the middle of the city. Open daily, the magical house is a UNESCO World Heritage Site

 

Walking is one of the best ways to discover Barcelona. Wander through the labyrinthine streets of the Gothic Quarter, where medieval architecture, charming plazas, and hidden gems await at every turn. Discover historic landmarks like the Barcelona Cathedral and Plaça Reial. Another great place to walk is La Rambla, Barcelona's most famous boulevard. Filled with street performers, souvenir shops, and busy cafes, La Rambla is also home to La Boqueria, a huge public market with stalls selling cured meats, cheeses, and more since 1840.

 

An elevated park, Jardins de la Rambla de Sants, is a 20,000-square-meter garden, built for the purpose of hiding the rail line with a box of hundreds of trees, and thousands of plants and shrubs. Ride the Montjuïc Cable Car, a gondola lift to the top of Montjuïc Hill, and enjoy stunning views of the city below.

 

Go to the beach! And when we say beach, we actually mean beaches. There are dozens to choose from, including Barceloneta, Bogatell, Llevant, and Mar Bella. This is a perfect activity on warmer days, before or after bar hopping for tapas, pintxos, and cava. For shopping (window shopping or otherwise), we love Bimba y Lola, Boo (a small, artfully-curated men's boutique in Gracia), Emma Pardos (for beautiful, sustainable bags and accessories), and Apres Ski (Barcelona-based goods, open since 2009) for jewelry and other one-of-a-kind objects. There’s also Hibernian, a cute, independent bookstore selling thousands of secondhand (and new) English-language books.

Description

Our favorite cafes in Barcelona include Onna Coffee in Gracia (a cozy little spot that roasts its own beans and sells pastries, too), Syra Coffee, and NEØ Coffee House. We also recommend strolling through the city’s many plazas, where you can sit, people watch, and order a coffee and snacks. 

 

Since 1969, Can Paixano has been the perfect pre- or post-beach stop for little pintxos and sandwiches with a nice, cold cava (Spain’s most popular sparkling wine). This is a tiny, often crowded place hidden near La Barceloneta beach. Guests often line up outside as they wait for a spot at the bar. Everything is delicious and incredibly wallet-friendly. Then there’s El Nacional, a beautiful, luxe indoor market that was once an automobile warehouse. Though a little pricier than other restaurants in the area, El Nacional has a variety of bars and food options to choose from. The ambiance alone is reason enough to spend some time here, even if you’re going to another restaurant after. El Pescadito Frito has served cold and hot tapas since 1984, but the real star of the show here is the fried fish. For fresh juices, pastries, and salads, pop into the art-filled Cafe Cometa in Sant Antoni.

 

Barcelona’s oldest cocktail bar, Boadas, is an establishment that can’t be missed. The founder, Miguel Boadas, learned the cocktail ropes at Floridita in Havana of all places—a bar Ernest Hemingway frequented back in the day. The dark and moody Boadas is the perfect place for a martini, and to make friends with the bartenders, who will likely offer you a suggestion or two for where to go next.

 

 Make your way to Meson del Champinon (open since the 1960s next to Boqueria) for juicy, buttery mushrooms, bread, peppers and and drink. 

 

Number two on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list in 2023, Disfrutar is a Michelin-starred restaurant run by former elBulli chefs. Expect inventive dishes, artistic presentations, and impeccable service in a sleek and modern dining room. Menu offerings range from a modernist multi spherical pesto with pistachios and eel to frozen gazpacho ice cream, but change seasonally. To visit this restaurant, join the waiting list online, which is often booked up months. It’ll give you time to save your pennies for the very special occasion, because Disfrutar is not cheap.

Buses, Rideshare, Bikes & More

Barcelona boasts an efficient and extensive metro system, making it easy to navigate the city. With over a dozen lines connecting key attractions and neighborhoods, the metro offers a convenient and affordable way to get around. The city’s bus network complements the metro, providing access to areas not covered by the subway. With a comprehensive network of routes and frequent service, buses are ideal for exploring neighborhoods off the beaten path. Taxis are readily available throughout Barcelona and offer a convenient option for getting around, especially late at night or when traveling with luggage. Rideshare is also available here, although sometimes it can take a while for your driver to get to you. Barcelona is a very pedestrian-friendly city, whether you’re walking or getting around on two wheels. Explore at your own pace by renting a bike and pedaling through the city's bike-friendly streets and scenic promenades.

Language, Safety, Tipping, and Siestas

While Catalan is the official language of Barcelona, most locals also speak Spanish. English is widely understood, especially in tourist areas. Learning a few basic phrases in Catalan or Spanish can enhance your travel experience.

 

When dining out, tipping is not required; instead, a standard service charge is often included in the bill. However, it's customary to leave a small tip for exceptional service, typically rounding up the bill or leaving 5-10% of the total.

 

Embrace the local custom of the siesta—when many shops and businesses (even restaurants) close for a few hours in the afternoon. Make sure to eat before or after siesta, and use this time to relax or explore quieter attractions before the city springs back to life later in the day.
