Barcelona is a brilliant place to go on a holiday. Whether for a short weekend break or a longer family holiday, this beautiful Spanish city has more than enough to keep any holidaymaker, young or old, entertained.

You’ll no doubt be desperate to go back and see all the things you didn’t get to experience the first time round but if you want to kick off your trip with some of the best attractions then here are our top three – each one a perfect reason to visit Barcelona.

  1. Beaches

Beaches are definitely not sparse in Barcelona. The city has over 4km of sandy candidates on the coast of the Mediterranean, making it a perfect destination for anybody working on their tan. Not only are these beaches perfect for sunbathing, they also help to create absolutely stunning views as the bright blue water of the Mediterranean is not something that will easily be forgotten.

  1. Las Ramblas

Las Ramblas is a pedestrianised strip in central Barcelona that is about 1.2km long and the main place for restaurants and shops. Whether you’re looking to go out for a meal or you want to pick up some holiday souvenirs, you can do all this on Las Ramblas without having to keep your eye out for cars – making it perfect for families with young children.

It’s also great if you want to try some local food or see some street art as all of this can be found in this one easy to navigate strip.

  1. Gaudi

Plenty of the buildings in Barcelona were designed and inspired by the works of Gaudi. This creates an extremely unique look to the city, giving it a very modern feel and is likely to be unlike anything that you have ever seen before.

Whether you are into your art or not, you can’t help but be fascinated by the amazing architecture in the city.

Barcelona really is a brilliant city to take a holiday, and it has plenty more to offer than what is written here. You can easily find cheap flights to Barcelona, meaning that you can experience a totally amazing place, without breaking your bank balance – what could be more perfect?
