Discover boutique city hotels for urban escapes in Barcelona, Spain
Step off La Rambla on your Barcelona holiday (once you’ve rambled all 1.2 kilometres, of course) to discover 2,000 years of history. This is the city where modern meets mediaeval – Gaudí’s hallucinogenic façades and the slick seafront coexist among leafy avenues and storied squares. Burrow into Barcelona’s subterranean Roman roots, stroll (and shop) the cobblestones of the Barri Gòtic, then fiesta with the in-crowd at the bohemian bars of El Raval. No wonder cava is the drink of choice here – this city has plenty to celebrate.
