Cosmopolitan whilst exuding a quintessentially Spanish charm, Barcelona is one of Europe’s most popular travel destinations.

Barcelona’s diversity is reflected in the range of museums and galleries peppered throughout its landscape. A stop at the Museu Picasso (Picasso Museum) is a must for any art-savvy tourist; boasting one of the largest collections of artwork by the prolific painter, it houses 3,800 pieces reflective of his career arc and relationship with the city itself. The Fundacio Joan Miro is yet another essential gallery experience, its collection encompassing several paintings, drawings and more by the 20th century virtuoso. Contemporary art aficionados, meanwhile, have the option of exploring the Centre de Cultura Contemporania (CCCB), housed in the up-and-coming Raval district. Clearly, there is anything but a dearth of options for those looking for a culture fix.
A hotbed of all-things culinary, Barcelona is teeming with restaurants whose offerings range from avant garde to classically Catalonian. There’s no shortage of tapas bars at which to start your gourmet adventures; serving small plates made for sharing, these casual, animated locales have options to suit virtually all tastes. Quaff locally-produced wine or cava – also known as “Spanish champagne” – with your array of dishes as you bond with fellow diners over dishes savoury and sweet.
The architecture of Antoni Gaudi has helped to define the spirit and identity of this seaside city. Still unfinished, La Sagrada Familia is an awe-inspiring testament to Gaudi’s genius, improving upon tenets of the Gothic style. Park Guell is a fanciful, colourful outdoor space featuring amazing mosaic work and plays home to the Gaudi House Museum, while the Casa Batllo seemingly swirls with equally amazing tile work. Nothing if not mesmerising, these sights leave a lasting impression on those lucky enough to view them in person.
Whether travelling for the art, food or otherwise, looking up Exeter or Southampton to Barcelona flights on Flybe is the first step toward immersing yourself in the city’s exciting environs.
