When you are looking for a city break that ticks all the boxes and even the streets themselves are a work of art, look no further than Barcelona. The city, which is the birthplace of modern architecture, offers endless treasures which make this one of Europe’s most popular capitals. That’s why Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona is the best place to take advantage of all of this.
Much of the city’s architecture is the work of Antoni Gaudí; from the imaginative Park Güell, the Casa Calvet and the colourful Casa Vicens to the lesser known Colegio de las Teresianas. You can find some of the city’s most famous buildings on the Paseo de Gracia. La Pedrera (or Casa Milà) has a rippling façade that evokes waves from the sea you can relax by at the Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona. And of course, dominating the city’s skyline is the unfinished Sagrada Familia Cathedral, which has become an undeniable symbol of the capital.
Take a trip to Montjuïc Park, on a hill topped by the Botanical Gardens, to the historic Parque del Laberinto de Horta, or to the romantic Cervantes Park, all of which are sights unique to Barcelona. If you don’t mind heights, you will love the views from the Torre de Collserola or the Columbus Monument. The views from Tibidabo mountain are also spectacular.
The city has a wealth of cultural offerings including museums such as the Museum of Contemporary Art of Barcelona (MACBA) and the Museum of Modernism (MMBCN), exhibition centres, theatres and concerts, which are must-do’s for any guest staying at the Occidental Hotels & Resorts in Barcelona. And no visit to Barcelona is complete without experiencing the leisure, cuisine, art and coolest city beaches.
The most comfortable way of enjoying this cosmopolitan city is through the Barceló Hotel Group’s hotels in Barcelona.
