History and culture near Barcelona holiday homes to rent

Catalonia's capital city of Barcelona sprawls along the Balearic coast, and is known for its unparalleled nightlife, vibrant museum scene and stunning architecture. Whether you spend all your time immersed in the quirky world of Antoni Gaudi or sipping cava on 1 of the city's many sandy beaches, there's truly something for everyone here. Enjoy tapas and flamenco late into the evening, and make time to celebrate the Spanish art of the siesta each afternoon. Explore Barcelona vacation rentals in the heart of the city or along its stunning coast. Either way, you can't go wrong!

History

Historic sites near Barcelona holiday rentals

Barcelona has numerous historic sites to explore. Holiday homes are available near places like the Gothic Quarter, a set of narrow medieval streets with trendy bars and clubs, restaurants and shows from the history museum, and Montjuïc, a historic site on a mountain with cable car rides, harbour views and a park with a castle and museums. You can also visit the Cathedral of Barcelona, a dramatic Gothic cathedral with geese-filled cloisters and guided tours.

Things to do

Attractions near Barcelona holiday accommodation

Don't be surprised if you spend most of your time in 1 of Barcelona's renowned museums. Antoni Gaudi is everywhere, so it should be easy to visit his famous Casa Mila, the whimsical Park Guell and the stunning Sagrada Familia. Meanwhile, art lovers interested in expanding their local knowledge will also love the Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya, which houses an extensive collection of Catalan art. For the kids in your crew who need a break from all the peace and quiet, hit up the Aquarium Barcelona or the Barcelona Zoo.

Activities

What to do near Barcelona holiday homes

Barcelona's cultural scene is 1 to be savoured, so you can fully appreciate the city's sights, sounds and smells. Take a Catalan cooking class to truly appreciate the local flavours or go shopping on Las Ramblas. Cap your day with a flamenco performance and a glass (or more) of cava. Barcelona is also known for its colourful street festivals, which are a huge hit for all ages. If you find that the noise of the city gets to be a bit too much, escape to the beach for some sun, sand and an outdoor siesta.

Weather

Best time to travel to Barcelona holiday homes

In spring and fall, you can expect Barcelona to have warm and breezy days and cool, comfortable nights. Consider visiting from April through June or September through November, especially if you're aiming to avoid peak-season crowds and prices. If the beach is a priority, skip browsing Barcelona vacation rentals for winter. Temperatures are mild this time of year, but you'll still find grey and drizzly weather, making indoor activities a requirement. Instead, plan a trip for June through early September if you want to spend your days among the throngs of fellow travellers and enjoy the city's best beaches.

Natural highlights

Start your day at sea level, and end it in the mountains

Sprawled along the Iberian peninsula's northeast coast, Catalonia's capital city serves as Spain's main Mediterranean port. Thanks to plenty of warm, sandy beaches, Barcelona also offers laid-back days by the sea and wild nights out, either in the beachfront clubs or in the city. Farther inland, Barcelona is bordered by the Serra de Collserola mountain range, with Mount Tibidabo as its highest point. So ask yourself this: Do you limit your search to Barcelona vacation rentals in the mountains, in the city or by the sea?
