Barcelona rides along the two waves that make up its character: on the one hand, its Mediterranean influence and on the other, its European and cosmopolitan persuasion. The Catalan capital is always a swarm of cultural activity while still maintaining the jewels of its heritage. That's why Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona is synonymous with repeated trips time and time again.
Barcelona would not be what it is today without Gaudí, its most illustrious architect: Park Güell, the casa Milà, the Batlló, the Pedrera, and, of course, the Sagrada Familia, the unfinished church whose construction started work in 1882 and, interestingly, is the most visited church in Europe after the San Pedro in the Vatican. The Catalan capital features so much that, in order to know it all, it’s mandatory to stay in the best connected hotels such as those at the Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona.
Hidden away in the Gothic neighbourhood of Barcelona you’ll find the roman and medieval remains of the city. There lies the Gothic Cathedral, shadowed by the fame of the Sagrada Familia and the beauty of Santa Maria del Mar, which is also called the Cathedral del Mar. If you stay in the central Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona, the soul of the city will encompass you with las Ramblas, which goes from the Plaça Catalunya up to the Christopher Columbus monument, overlooking the Mediterranean.
A sample of the city’s character is located in the modern arch of the most popular market, the Boquería, where you can find both typical as well as the most exotic dishes. Although if what you’re looking for is to get a taste of the cosmopolitan flavour that exudes from the Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona, there is nothing better than a walk through the Born district and discover how its historic market has turned into a cultural centre. All a simile of the city itself.
Barcelona invites you to get to know it intimately from the best hotels in Barcelona.
