From the fury of flamenco to the surreal visions embodied in the architecture, Barcelona is a city whose passion pours from every pore. You’ll feel it as you walk the historic streets, and set eyes on the almost alien-like buildings created by legendary architect Gaudi – they look like they’ve grown organically from the landscape itself. La Rambla is the buzzing avenue through which the whole city seems to pour, and if your tummy starts rumbling during your explorations, you can always head into a tapas bar for cured meats, tongue-tingling olives and easy-drinking wine. With the Mediterranean coast never far away, you’ll have so much to see and do near Barcelona holiday apartments.
If you like the thought of having a proper nook of your own in this dynamic Spanish city, then you’ll want to look into holiday rentals in Barcelona. Instead of staying in just another hotel room, you’ll be able to kick back in your own, spacious base, where you can plan your day’s activities over a leisurely breakfast in the kitchen, and come back whenever you like to relax and recharge your batteries on the sofa. Plus, having your own fridge, cooker and work surfaces means you can bring back local ingredients to whip up your own, cost-effective dishes whenever you feel like it. With ebookers, you can select the right pad for you, whether you fancy staying in the atmospheric Gothic Quarter, or in a quieter neck of the woods.
Get ready to do a lot of urban exploration, because one of the most fascinating things to do in Barcelona is seeking out the landmarks left by Antoni Gaudi. These organic, other-worldly creations define Barcelona for so many people, and seeing them up close is an unforgettable experience – especially when you’re gazing up at the ornate Sagrada Familia church. Sun-worshippers will be well served in the city as well, as Barcelona holiday rentals are within walking distance of Barceloneta Beach, where you can find your spot on the sand and relax your legs after a day’s sightseeing. Art buffs will relish a tour of the Picasso Museum, where the master of modern art’s works are displayed in picturesque palaces. And if that wets your appetite for more art, you can explore the Fundacio Joan Miro to see the works of that other great Spanish painter.
It’s perfectly possible to spend your whole holiday in the city without ever bothering with public transport. But if you get tired, or just fancy getting somewhere quickly, you can hop on the efficient underground metro. There’s also the Tramvia Blau, a charming vintage tram line which offers a unique way to see the sights. And, if you’re here for more than a few days and want to get out and see more of Catalonia, you can look into hiring a car and having the vehicle await your arrival in Barcelona.
