Things to do

Sightseeing near Barcelona holiday lettings

No trip to the buzzing Catalan capital could possibly be complete without swinging by the soaring Sagrada Familia. This UNESCO site is a veritable symbol of the city, looming high with a perplexing array of turrets above its intricately carved facade. After that, the Museu Picasso awaits with even more in the way of strange artistry – it's got over 4,000 works by the iconic Spanish master of cubism and curiosity. The Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya caps them all off with Renaissance portraits by El Greco, Gothic triptychs and modern art alike.


Things to do near Barcelona holiday homes

It's easy to get hands-on with Barcelona's rich culture. Follow your nose to the shrimp-sizzling, chilli-packed tapas bars to try your hand at the local Catalan cuisine. Enlist the help of foodie guides to reveal the finest fish bistros along the promenades at Barceloneta Beach. Flit between the cathedral spires and markets of the Gothic Quarter, listening to tales of Spanish adventurers and kings. Hit the shopping drag of La Rambla, touting a credit card in the face of chic fashion boutiques and style emporiums. There's loads.


Best time to travel to your Barcelona holiday rental

There's never really a bad time to hop down to Barcelona. The cultural musts are always there – they might even be better viewed in the winter months between November and March when there are fewer crowds. If you prefer sun and Spanish al fresco living, think about booking Barcelona holiday rentals with a balcony for the warmer seasons. They start with spring in April and May and get scorching for the high summer between June and August. Autumn, in September and October, can be a good option for those looking to hit the hiking trails of the surrounding mountains.

Natural features

Barcelona holiday rentals enfolded by seas and hills

Barcelona stretches across the wide coastal plain between the Catalan sierras and the Balearic Sea. Powdery Barceloneta Beach is where the action's at in the summer, or up on the more rugged and wild headlands of the Costa Brava to the north. The other side of town is bordered by rising hills, beginning with the bluffs of the Collserola, clothed in oaks and heathland, home to eagles and wild boar. Keep going and you'll discover the chiselled ridges of the famous Montserrat mountain, home to the mysterious monastery hiding secrets of the Holy Grail.
