Although the climate in our country is perfect to visit the principal capitals during any month of the year, it is true that the best time is in the spring when you can immerse yourself in the authentic, most pure essence of every street, square and corner. Of all of them Barcelona is one of the cities that blooms in spring-time and is more beautiful than ever.
Imagine walking through the Gothic neighbourhood smelling a light scent of flowers abundant at this time of the year? What do you think about participating in all of the excursions the city has prepared for you, with extra good weather included? If you have answered “yes” to both questions, your place is at one of the Petit Palace hotels in Barcelona, charming, urban hotels with everything you need and more, so that stay will be simply perfect.
Assuming that you are already in Barcelona, you have never been there before and it is your treat so you want to return home with the memory of the best the city can offer you before you finish your weekend escapade. Where should you start? What should you make sure you visit?
Surely the key places to visit in the city are already on your “to do” travel list. Yes or yes (Here you will have the Sagrada Familia and others of Gaudi’s works such as la Pedrera, Las Ramblas, or the Mercado de la Boqueria) there are places you just cannot miss.
In spring time everything is more beautiful in Barcelona and if you are not sure give it a try and go to the area of Barceloneta or to the Gothic neighbourhood and you will see for yourself that we are not wrong. If you enjoy “tapas” (finger food) with maybe a first brunch of the day in the open air, then make your way to the beautiful Borne area.
If on the contrary it is not the first time you tread on Barcelona soil and everything we have commented has already formed part of your travelling experience and yes… surely you would like to go a little further, following the alleys in search of that which the novice tourist to Barcelona does not see. The perfect plan is that you investigate every backstreet and square because the people from Barcelona live their lives in the streets and this means you can find an infinity of stalls and things to do and buy.
If you are a lover of strong emotions you should not miss the Sitges Classical Car Rally, an appointment with some of the most beautiful historical racing cars which takes place on the 21 and 22 March very near to the Catalan capital.
