Surrounded by the majestic Pyrenees mountains, and flanked by hundreds of kilometres of magnificent Iberian coastline, Catalonia and its incredible capital city of Barcelona are steeped in history, yet still modern.


If you’re seeking an unforgettable European holiday, Barcelona and the beautiful Catalonia region is the ideal place to start your adventure. Soak up the abundance of cultural sights and activities, world-class sporting events, and experience exceptional dining and entertainment opportunities.

Gaudí’s spectacular architecture is plentiful in Barcelona: La Sagrada Família is one of the many artistic masterpieces that draw visitors to the city. Meander along the highly entertaining Las Ramblas boulevard that merges with historic Port Vella. Persist along the buzzing seafront and make your way to the ultra-modern Port Olímpic district, surrounded by beaches, gardens, and the prominent architecture of buildings such as the Torre Mapfre and Hotel Arts.

Nearby find the picturesque Barceloneta Beach, bustling with entertainers and sand artists, and boasting superb waterfront restaurants that offer a culinary feast of traditional Spanish seafood dishes.

A visit to the truly captivating Gothic Quarter provides an opportunity to marvel at the historical depth and architectural creativity that exist within this very special city. A short walk away you will find yet more contemporary architecture to admire, led by the boundary-pushing Miró creations and more of the adventurous works of Gaudí, which can be seen located across the central areas of Barcelona.
