La Mercè (23 September – 25 September 2016)
Enjoy some authentic Catalan culture during Barcelona’s biggest city celebrations. There’s no better way to end the summer with your friends and family.
Wander through the Ramblas, visit the Sagrada Familia or enjoy the Spanish nightlife: Barcelona is the place to be for any tourist.
Barcelona is the perfect destination for art-lovers. After all, it is the city of Miró, Picasso and, above all, Gaudí. He changed the face of Barcelona more than anyone ever did, by building the Sagrada Familia, a magnificent church that is beyond description. In 1883, Gaudí started to build this architectural masterpiece, but it has not yet been completed due to lack of funds. Entrance fees to the church are being used to finance further construction.
Other sights in Barcelona include Park Guëll, which was designed by Gaudí and offers a marvellous view over the city; the Camp Nou Stadium, the most important football stadium and home of FC Barcelona; and Montjuïc, a hill with a large number of museums and the Olympic stadium. You can really soak up the Catalan atmosphere in the Ramblas, the beating heart of Barcelona.
After a long day of sightseeing in Barcelona you can definitely go and refresh at the Barceloneta, one of Barcelona's best-loved beaches. If you have been dreaming of a long break on a beach then you can choose to head north to the Costa Brava or south to the Costa Dorada. The best beaches of Catalonia are awaiting you and we promise you won’t be disappointed.
