Welcome to Barcelona

Barcelona is one of our favourite cities in the world. Whether you’re a culture vulture, history buff, sun-seeker or foodie, Barcelona is the ideal destination for any kind of backpacker.

Marvel at the Sagrada Familia, explore Park Guell or get lost in the charming alleys of the Gothic Quarter. Then, what better way to rest your feet than by sinking your toes into the sand and taking a dip in the Mediterranean sea? Barceloneta Beach is on the doorstep of everything. Don’t miss out on some of the most delicious local cuisine in Europe - fresh seafood, Catalan tapas and authentic paella. If you’re looking for inspiration ahead of your trip to the Spanish city, explore our Barcelona Hub for all the inside information you need to know… 

  • Be aware of pickpockets

  • Buy a T-10 transport pass for €10 to save on 10 metro, bus, train or tram journeys

  • Don’t bother ordering double spirit & mixers as a single is a huge 70-80cl! 

  • A 10% tip is more than enough on food or drinks where you’ve had table service

  • Check for Barcelona strikes or holidays before you go, as many things close
