Barcelona: Directly on the coast you will find the metropolitan city of Barcelona. It is the second largest city on Spain. A modern, cosmopolitan city, but has inherited many centuries of history.
You will always find something to do in Barcelona. It is full of surprises for adults as well as for the children and will keep you entertained with countless cultural and recreational activities throughout the year. The city is the only big European city with a large sandy beach, basically in the centre of town.
Combined with the winding streets of the old town (Barri Gotic), and the pounding big-city life of large shopping streets and virtually a café on every corner - Barcelona is probably the most exciting city in Spain, perhaps in all of Europe.
Museums: The city has more than 50 museums (and 300 in Catalonia), showcasing permanent collections of works by artists such as Picasso, Joan Miró and Antoni Tàpies. At the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya (MNAC) you can see one of the world's most important collections of Romanesque art. It also has famous collections of contemporary art housed in museums such as the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA) and CaixaForum. Most museums stage temporary exhibitions.
Architect and designer: Antoni Gaudi was at the forefront of the Art Nouveau movement in Spain. While working in Barcelona he created some of the city's most notable and extraordinary landmarks. He was a pioneer in his field using colour, texture, and movement in ways never before imagined. All of is works, the ones he finished himself, as well as the uncompleted (La Sagrada Familia) stands as testimony to his genius. We recommend in particular the Parque Güell on the hill of el Carmel 10 on the outskirts of the city.
Restaurants, Bars and nightclubbing: If this is one of your first visits to Barcelona, you will never go wring with a stroll around the old quarter (Barri Gotic). There is a perfect little cafe virtually on every corner. Go look and you will find. This is in our experience the best way to get the feel for Barcelona. If you prefer planning ahead; the Timeout guide is a good place to start.
The night-life in Barcelona is infamous -and not without reason. There is hardly any place in Europe with a night life anything like this. Whether you want to dance all night to the latest music with the teenagers and 20-somethings, or enjoy a quiet drink in picturesque settings. Go to a concert. Etc. Etc. Barcelona is your city. The possibilities are too numerous to mention.
The apartment is situated in the cosy old fisherman's neighbourhood Barceloneta. Now it is famous for its many seafood restaurants. Additionally, the location just between the Gothic neighbourhood in the heart of Barcelona and the beach starting on the other side, perfect point of departure for holiday in Barcelona.
Ski: Many of the citizens of Barcelona go on ski trips to Andorra, a couple of hours drive away from the Metropol.
