15 days excursion around Barcelona

We must not forget that Barcelona is still a province located on the shores of the Mediterranean and, therefore, a very suggestive destination if we are looking for a beach and sun vacation. But along with all this we have history, culture and interesting tours. Which are? Here we go!
A few days in the city of Barcelona
We will begin our tour of Barcelona in its capital. It is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain, and also one of the most touristic. Here you have to spend 3-4 days minimum. At least one day we will spend it on the beach and the seaport.
But in our excursion through Barcelona there is much more. A tour of the jewels of modernism is essential. It was an architectural movement of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries of which there are magnificent examples in the city.
The greatest exponent of that movement was the architect Antoni Gaudí. From his ingenuity, spaces as beautiful as Park Güell and buildings as impressive as the famous Sagrada Familia were born. Places that, of course, we will visit, along with others such as La Pedrera or Casa Batlló.
The tourist tour of Barcelona in search of its modernist art will easily take us another day. Behind this, You have to give a walk down the Ramblastour the Gothic quarter and visit the cathedral or Plaça de Sant Jaume.
We will also visit the most cosmopolitan area of Barcelona and get to know its famous Agbar tower. And of course, reserve time to visit some of the city’s museumsamong them the Picasso Museum, the National Museum of Catalonia and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Fifth day: Barcelona from above
About to leave the city of Barcelona, we cannot miss the opportunity to see it from above. For example, we can enjoy ideal views on Montjuïc.
You can go up on foot or by cable car. The castle awaits us on top and a wonderful panoramic view of Barcelona, with the Mediterranean Sea bathing it. We can also tour the Olympic Ring or visit the Spanish Village, with reproductions of unique buildings in Spain.
With this, There is another option to enjoy Barcelona from a bird’s eye view: climb Tibidabo, the second most emblematic mountain in the city. You can go up by funicular and visit the Expiatory Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus or have fun at the amusement park.
Last days of tour
In the remaining days of the excursion through Barcelona, the possibilities multiply. Everything will largely depend on what we are looking for: cultural tourism, beach, fun… There are many attractions and it is impossible to see them all in a few days.
For those looking for sun and sand, a good place is Sitges. It is a town located 40 kilometers from Barcelona. Famous for hosting a famous film festival, it is also known for its beaches and gay scene.
Also we advise you to visit Santa Coloma de Cervello. There it is possible to visit Colonia Güell, another of the great examples of Gaudí’s architecture. And it is one step away from the city of Barcelona.
Inland, one of the visits that cannot be overlooked is Montserrat, with its monastery and its heart-stopping landscapes.
And finally, not to be missed towns like The Sources of the Llobregat. This is a perfect place to enjoy nature in its waterfalls. It is also worth visiting the Sau-Collsacabra valley and the beaches of El Maresme. These options are more natural, but you will also love them.
Everything that surrounds Barcelona is ideal! Whether they are beaches, landscapes, monuments or wonderful urban environments. We are sure that your vacations here will be unforgettable. What do you think? You are ready?
