Many hotels in Barcelona are situated nicely to allow tourists perfect access to the Gothic Quarter, Barcelona’s old city. In the Gothic Quarter, visitors can view many old sites where Roman structures are often still visible. Housing some of the Barcelona’s most spectacular architecture, this area includes the Catedral, The Palau Reial Major, St. Martí, and a pair of museums, the Museu d’Història de la Ciutat and the Museu Frederic Marès. Museum and art lovers both will want to catch the Museu d’Art Comtemporani, located near the Rambla, and the Museu Picasso.
Barcelona is well known for its beaches and Olympic port, located in Barceloneta. Also famed in the city is the Rambla, a pedestrian thoroughfare, home to a massive shopping district and leisureplex, where entertainment abounds throughout the week and over the weekend. Barcelona has it all, if shopping is what you are looking for, including the Boqueria, Barcelona’s largest indoor market. If hilltop views of spectacular scenery are more the thing for you, Barcelona won’t disappoint. Outdoors types should make sure not to miss Tibidabo and Montjuïc.
