Las Ramblas

The backbone of Barcelona and one of the best-known promenades in the world, this street, which snakes though the centre of the city to the statue of Christopher Columbus, is spectacular in itself. Tourists and locals stroll among the trees, from one end to the other, all year round, looking at the thousands of small attractions that appear with every step: exotic animal shops, live performances, florists…

A genuine river of life and colour that you will never tire of sailing.

Casa Batlló

Casa Batlló was built between 1904 and 1906 in the heart of the city, and is the brilliant Catalan architect’s most recognisable work. Gaudí gave the Casa Batlló a façade that was original, fantastical and brimming with imagination. The building is a marvellous ornamental design created with the skills of numerous highly-skilled craftsmen. Gaudí worked with the best artisans from all the guilds.

La Pedrera

La Pedrera is probably one of the best-known modernist buildings in the world and one of architect Antoni Gaudí’s most important works. It truly is a work of art.

Its uniqueness and its heritage and artistic value are widely acknowledged. La Pedrera was included in the Catalogue of Artistic Heritage of the City of Barcelona in 1962, was declared a Historical-Artistic Monument of National Interest by the Spanish government in 1969 and has been a World Heritage Site since 1984 because of its exceptional value to mankind.

El Palau de la Musica

The Palau de la Música Catalana was built between 1905 and 1908 by architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner as the headquarters of the Orfeó Català, and was paid for by public subscription. The Palau de la Música Catalana is an architectural treasure of Catalan modernism, the only modernist concert hall to be declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (4 December 1997). It is still an essential meeting point in Catalonia’s cultural and social scene.

La Barceloneta

This is one of the city’s most historic and popular neighbourhoods. The first houses sprung up in 1754 and the neighbourhood was settled by fishermen and people who worked at and around the port. The neighbourhood still has this typical local feel, far removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. However, the atmosphere has changed a lot, particularly in the summer. The beach is one of the city’s busiest, both during the day and at night. Music and beach bars are popular places to have dinner or to have drinks into the early hours of the morning.
