Barcelona is one of the world’s most visited cities. Sitting on the coast in Spain, just a stone’s throw from the Pyrenees and the Costa Brava coastline, the city is surrounded by some incredible natural landscapes. But stay a while in the city and you will discover a fantastic food scene, world class galleries, iconic architecture and bustling neighbourhoods. Brightsun Travel offers a range of cheap holidays to Barcelona so you can experience this popular city in Spain for yourself on your next holiday. Many people base themselves in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, for its incredible architecture and bustling nightlife. But up and coming neighbourhoods like San Martin and Poble Sec are places where you can experience ‘real life’ in Barcelona, just a short stroll from the tourist highlights. Here, just a 10 minute walk from the centre, you can dine at tapas bars that date back over a hundred years, and shop at local markets selling produce and textiles.
Shortly after arriving in Barcelona you could head to one of the city’s highlights, the Jean Miro Museum, nestled in a beautiful park offering fantastic city views. Then you could tour famous buildings designed by Gaudi, which are dotted all around the city. Finally, it’s time for lunch. In Barcelona lunch is the main meal of the day, and all across the city you can get incredible value 3 course lunches for around 15 euros. Then it’s time to head to the beach. Barcelona is blessed with a central beach, which features shops, restaurants and bar parks along a gorgeous stretch of coastline. And even though the city offers plenty more to do, Spain’s incredible train network could take you to beach side towns across the Costa Brava in minutes, making day trips from Barcelona a must. We particularly like the town of Sant Pol de Mar where you can dine at world class restaurants and spend the afternoon on a beautifully kept beach just one hour from the city.
