An alternative winter break in Barcelona
Travel guide ١٤ نوفمبر ٢٠٢٢
Barcelona boasts an intoxicating mix of food, art and architecture. Usually a sunseekers paradise, this vibrant city is still the place to be come wintertime – with independent shops and trendy bars providing more than enough of a reason to visit.
To see

When January rolls around, the winding streets of the old town return to their pre-Christmas self, offering quiet corners to admire the city’s famed gothic architecture. While exploring, don't miss the Plaça Reial, Santa Eulàlia Cathedral or Palau Reial Major. Guaranteed to banish any January blues, the charming streets will transport you back to medieval Catalonia.
