Holiday information

 

Barcelona

Barcelona is one of the most extraordinary of all European cities, full of interest and Mediterranean bustle, and riding high in civic and national pride. Discover the extraordinary architectural heritage of Gaudí, the tapas bars of the old town, or enjoy the nightly promenade along the Ramblas.
As far as European cities go, Barcelona ticks more boxes than most and were the Catalans to get their way, and gain independence, they have, in Barcelona, a truly exceptional capital-in-waiting. Barcelona is a fascinating, vibrant and ebullient city. It is dominated by Gaudí's extraordinary masterpiece, La Sagrada Familia, begun in 1883 and due to be completed in 2026 (allegedly!), and the many modernist works of art that can be found on Barcelona's wide streets give the city a unique atmosphere and flavour.

Sightseeing

The key to Inntravel holidays is flexibility. You can start on the day of your choice, and are free to add extra nights.
  • An introduction
    Barcelona, unlike many European capitals, does not have a long list of must-visit museums or monuments; the city itself is the star attraction, in fact much of the city has been described as an open-air museum. It rejoices in a wealth of extraordinary architectural features, most notably the works of famous architect, Antonio Gaudí. Here are just a few highlights:
    • Don't miss – how could you! – La Sagrada Familia, the great church whose foundations were laid in 1883 and which, in the tradition of great places of worship, is still unfinished over a century later. Take the lift up the tower for superb city views.
    • The Museu d’Historia de la Ciutat, a fascinating museum on the Plaça del Rei that traces the history of the city, including its Roman origins.
    • The Picasso Museum, in what is considered to be the artist's home city, is housed in five medieval stone mansions and contains one of the most extensive collections of artworks by Picasso.
    • Las Ramblas/La Rambla is the world famous promenade that meanders from Plaça Catalunya through the heart of the old town to meet the sea at the towering statue of Cristobal Colón (Christopher Columbus). Mingle with the crowds and enjoy the atmosphere of what has been described as “the greatest free show in Europe”.
  • Notes for a self-guided walking tour included
    The actual old town or Ciutat Vella is contained within a relatively small area so most places of interest can be reached on foot. Our self-guided walking tour takes approximately two hours to cover part of the Ciutat Vella, particularly the small, unassuming district of Santa Anna, and crosses the Plaça Catalunya to take in the lower section of the Eixample (19th-century modernist expansion).
