What do you get when you plop a city on the Mediterranean Sea, throw in a handful of UNESCO World Heritage Sites and then sprinkle it with great football players? Barcelona, Spain has everything from a hopping city centre to citizens baring (almost) all on the beaches. The capital of Catalonia is ready to show you more, so book accommodation in Barcelona to see it all.
For some people, the amount of things to do and see in the “Head and Hearth of Catalonia” could be overwhelming, but not for you. Why? Because you came to check out landmarks like Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, which has been under development since 1882. There’s nothing like 100-plus years of construction to keep the neighbourhood on its toes. See another one of Gaudi’s masterpieces at Casa Batllo, where the roof resembles the back of a dragon with the sword of Saint George plunged through it.
How do you feel about actually getting lost in the city? Enter the Parc del Laberint d’Horta (Labyrinth Park of Horta) and see how long it takes you to find your way out of the hedges back to your Barcelona accommodation. It’ll remind you of the Triwizard Maze from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, except there’s no goblet at the end and the bushes won’t try to rip you apart.
Flights to Barcelona will land at Barcelona-Prat Airport (BCN), 17 km from downtown Barcelona. You can take a train from either Terminal 1 or 2 to the Passeig de Garcia or Barcelona Sants Railway Station. There’s taxi cabs outside of the main terminals, or you can make reservations with a private one before your arrival to set up a pre-arranged lift to the hotels in Barcelona.
Would you rather zip around the city in your own vehicle? Book one of lastminute.com.au’s awesome car hire deals and go from Sants-Montjuic to Gracia to Nou Barris whenever you please. Or maybe that’s too much power for you…if that’s the case, bicycles are easy to rent and a great way to explore the city’s side streets.
Given its location on the Mediterranean Sea, it’s always a good time for Barcelona Holidays. The spring and summer months tend to be the best in terms of mild temperatures and all-day sunshine. The warmer days tend to creep in around August, but it’s nothing the Mediterranean can’t help you with. If you want to visit when it’s cooler, the months of December, January and February are for you.
Barcelona is a city with as much energy as your friend at a rave. Give in to the peer pressure and get deals on some of the best Barcelona hotels to kick off your adventure. Want to see the rest of this country? lastminute.com.au will hook you up with the perfect Spain accommodation. Stop dreaming and start planning!
