Barcelona & Catalonia

Call 01242 547 821 to speak to a specialist Enquire


Barcelona combines everything you could want on a Mediterranean break: lots of sights, a curving sweep of glamorous sandy beach and an array of chic restaurants and stylish bars that stay open until the small hours. We like the gritty cobbled streets of El Born, with its little tapas joints and cocktail bars which shake a mean caipirinha. In direct contrast is Eixample, a large district in the centre of the city with beautiful architecture, including imposing Plaça Catalunya and the Passeig de Gràcia with its unusual boutiques and designer shops. Gaudí infl uences from all corners, with spooky Casa Battló peering over the city centre to quirky, colourful Parc Güell, with its curving rainbow of mosaic tiles.

The dominating Sagrada Familia boldly reaches skywards with its unfi nished towers: one side a daring, modern ingress, the other a romantic, crumbling façade. La Rambla is a wide Pedestrianised swathe down the city centre; ignore the tourist tat and throw yourself into La Boqueria, an ancient food market bristling with energy and local fl avour. After dark try Catalonian tapas either standing at the bar at one of the tiny outlets in El Born or among the fashion houses at Tapaç 24 off the Passeig de Gràcia. End your night at Dry Martini, a revered speakeasy where gloved waiters in white tuxedos create - you guessed it - the best martinis, and chill the next day on a daybed at La Barceloneta's laidback beaches.

Guest Testimonial

I can easily say that nothing - nothing - in the natural world compares to an hour spent with wild mountain gorillas. An encounter with these magnificent beasts is absolutely without parallel.
