In the city you can find one-hundred-year-old theatres dedicated to opera and music such as the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Modernista Palau de la Música Catalana. There are also excellent and modern auditoria as well as major institutions devoted to the plastic arts, centres catering for the most avant-garde art forms, venues for scenic innovation, theatres staging the classics and art galleries and spaces devoted to heritage art.

Charming corners of Barcelona

Hidden away off the beaten tourist tracks, down little side streets, there are an infinite number of truly Barcelona recesses that people often know nothing about, even those who live here.
 
Squares, cloisters, alleyways, walks and paths that belong to another era evoke a Barcelona that, at first sight, appears not to exist: one that maintains the essence of the town or village that every city neighbourhood used to be.

Beaches

Barcelona would not be Barcelona without its Mediterranean nature: bathed by four kilometres of beaches and flanked by the parks of Montjuïc and the Collserola, an immense green massif with incredible biodiversity, the city offers infinite and irresistible possibilities for experiencing it in the open air. Parc de la Ciutadella is a well-known destination for picnics, boat rides and strolls on sunny days.
 
Barcelona has nature on offer all year round. Particularly in the summer, but also for a good part of the spring and autumn, the city's characteristic deep blue skies invite us to bathe in the sun and the sea. There are various beaches to choose from: some are calmer, for families and away from the centre, while others are more crowded and livelier, close to popular restaurants and bars.

La Sagrada Familia

If you have time whilst in Barcelona, plan a visit to the Sagrada Familia. This church will surprise you, not only because of its massive size, but especially because of its avant-garde architecture, which perfectly shows off the genius of its architect, Antoni Gaudí. It is one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions, with more reviews than the Eiffel Tower or Great Wall of China.
