Our top picks close to this hotel

For Families

La Rambla is Barcelona’s most famous street and with good merit. The street is lined with market stalls selling everything from baby bunnies to chilli plants. The local artists will only be too happy to paint a family portrait for you or sketch out a few caricatures.

For Romance

Barcelona is littered with ‘churros’ cafes. These long doughnut like cakes are sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar and filled with dulce de leche or chocolate. If you’re feeling really naughty, you can even dip your churros into the local thick hot chocolate too.

For Culture

The Fundació Joan Miró art museum is home to an extensive collection of the artists works, including over 225 paintings and 150 sculptures. Highlights include the 1944 Barcelona Series.

For Shopping

We’re all familiar with the big Spanish brands such as Zara and Mango, and since you’re on their home turf, you’ll be pleased to know they’re cheaper than the UK stores. Some other great Spanish clothes stores you may be less familiar with however include the hugely popular Custo Barcelona and Blanco.

For Eating Out

Barcelona is a blend of world cuisine, but no trip would be complete without trying some traditional Catalan dishes. Try the crema catalana, a local take on the french desert creme brulee, and Fideuas, a spin on a seafood paella but served with short noodles instead of rice.

For Nightlife

Situated on Tibidabo hill, Mirabe is a destination night out. It might be a bit more tricky to get too, but you won’t be disappointed. Spread over two floors and with unbeatable views of the city. Head along early at 7 to catch the sunset with a cocktail.
