Sunny Barcelona

If you are looking for a sunny destination all year round where you can enjoy beautiful scenery, golden sands and plenty to see and do, then Barcelona could well be the place to consider.


Annual Highlights

Because of the warm climate all year round, sun seekers can plan to travel to Barcelona at any time in the year. There are however, a few events that you may want to experience while you are there. If you are travelling over the Christmas period, you may like the 'Dia de los Reyes' which translates to the three wise men, this is on the 6th Jan. This is an important celebration over the Christmas period for the Spanish. Between the 7th and 13th Feb you can experience the Carnival, much like the Gracia street party which is in August.


Useful Barcelona Facts

If you plan to try out some of the local foods, you will find a common regional food to be Pan Tomaca. This is a delightful dish made from bread and ham. You may also come across Crema Catalana, which is a version of Creme Brule.

You will find that the cost of living is generally cheaper than you would find in places such as London. This applies to the cost of eating out and to beer prices. You can get a pint of beer for around 4-5 Euros.

Barcelona is 1 hour ahead of British time. The most common languages in Barcelona are Catalan and Spanish.


Getting Around & Where to Stay

The El Prat Airport is only 12 km from the city centre, so commuting to the centre is easily done on the Aerobus (A1 or A2) for as little as 6 Euros or thereabouts. You can also catch a train or grab a taxi for around 20 Euros.
