Looking for a different plan? How about a little wine tourism? Whether you are a wine lover or simply want to discover more about Barcelona's wines, the city gives you the opportunity to taste the best wines of the area. There is an almost infinite variety of wines, with a different wine for everyone: whites, reds, rosés, from the sea, from the mountains or even Cava, the famous sparkling white wine.

You will be able to participate in wine tasting events, visit wineries, go on different routes and enjoy plans related to wine that will surely leave you with a smooth and nice after taste. Cheers!

You cannot miss it

Beyond its architectural flagship, the Sagrada Familia, most of its creations in the city will transport you to imaginary worlds that deserve their recognition as a World Heritage Site, declared by Unesco.

Its legacy will not leave you indifferent either, you only have to see the facade and interior of the Palau de la Música de Domenech and Montaner to be blown away by the vivid tones that its stained glass windows project.

Perhaps, because of that magical footprint that Gaudí left on Barcelona, it is also known as the city of dragons. If you look closely, you will surely find scales and claws in more than one corner of its streets.

The cosmopolitan history of Barcelona leaves traces of the Roman Empire, Gothic cathedrals that inspired novels and medieval castles with captivating views. Here you will find a perfect blend of nature, leisure and culture.

Streets filled with life, from Verdi, where you can enjoy a glass of homemade vermouth or buy a vintage item, following the Paseo de Gracia, the Gothic Quarter or Las Ramblas. Don't forget to take a stroll in the La Boqueria market to enjoy the many smells and flavours of the sea and land.
 

Barcelona gets ready for Christmas

Without a doubt, Christmas is the perfect excuse to visit Barcelona. Christmas kicks off in Barcelona with the famous ceremony of lighting the Christmas lights at the end of November. Millions of sustainable coloured light bulbs are lit and brighten up the city streets during the Christmas holidays. Get your camera ready, you will definitely want to take a snap of this back home.

There are plenty of Christmas-themed markets and fairs across the city, such as the Fira de Santa Llúcia right in front of Barcelona Cathedral, Fira de la Sagrada Familia, in front of the temple, or Fira de Reis de la Gran Vía
