Things to do

Experience the sights and sounds of Catalonia

Catalonia offers a wealth of sights and adventures. Park Guell in Barcelona offers an incredible mix of peaceful greens, winding paths, sculptures and mosaics. If you prefer a little more nature in your parks, Parque Nacional de Aiguestortes in Espot has brilliant views of a lake atop a mountain. When you’re back in Barcelona, take time to see Casa Batllo, which will blow you away the second you look at it. The outside is covered in beautiful mosaic design and inside is even better. See the best Catalonan designer and artist Gaudi had to offer.


It’s never dull in Catalonia

Beautifully crafted churches and other buildings are prevalent throughout the entire Catalonia area, so one of the first things you should do is take a tour to see them all. Afterwards, you can check out Camp Nou, the largest soccer stadium in Europe. Buy a ticket to a soccer game here, and you’ll see the best in the business perform feats with a ball you wouldn’t even think are possible. Make sure you take your friends and family to the Chicken Banana escape room game where you have to use logic and teamwork to win.


The diverse climate of Catalonia

Catalonia’s climate varies depending on distance from the coast. Enjoy hot summers near the coast with highs in the 80s and winters that are only slightly cool. You’ll have a very different experience in the north around the Pyrenees, where snow is a frequent occurrence in winter. There will be cold days closer to the shore where it will snow too, but most of it is concentrated in the mountains. Avoid rain in Catalonia by visiting during summer or winter, unless you’re going to the mountains in which there are frequent storms during the summer.

Natural features

Explore the beautiful Catalonia landscape

There are a variety of geographical features in Catalonia. The north has the Pyrenees mountains that are gorgeous and snow covered, providing ample opportunity for winter getaways. Rolling hills can be found in the Central Catalan Depression in between the Pyrenees and Pre-Coastal Mountains, perfect for scenic views. The Catalonian coast, on the other hand, includes beautiful beaches like Platja de Sant Sebastia that have a perfect view of the Mediterranean and the old town. It’s not uncommon to see dolphins and even whales as you look out into the sea, so keep an eye out.
