Barcelona City Guide

Brief History

Barcelona has been a major city in its region for thousands of years. Founded as a Roman colony, the city has been the center of Catalan language and culture ever since. During the 16th and 17th centuries, when Spain was united under the rule of Ferdinand and Isabella, Barcelona was a major site of Catalan separatism. The city’s history of independent politics continued under the fascist rule of Francisco Franco (r. 1939-1975), and is still an important part of the city’s culture today.

Transportation

Flights to Barcelona come through Barcelona International Airport, a major hub for many European airlines. The airport is only a few short miles from the city center, so getting to your hotel should be quite easy. Taxis are available, but they are very expensive in Barcelona, so most people opt to take the train or bus.

Once in the city, getting around by public transportation is fairly easy. The city has plenty of buses operating, and a metro system that serves most major areas. You can also purchase an all-access Barcelona Card that will give you free travel throughout the city for a certain period of time. It is also popular to rent a bicycle, scooter, or vespa, as these are the preferred methods of transportation for the local people.

Popular Attractions

  • As a city with rich historical texture, Barcelona has many old buildings and ruins to explore. Walking tours will take you past several of the notable ones.
  • If modern architecture is more of interest to you, check out the work of the architect Gaudi, including the Parc Güell and the Sagrada Família. Several companies offer self-guided walking tours of all the art nouveau architecture in Barcelona.
  • The Harbor Cable Car is a great way to see parts of the city from the air.

Food

Catalan food is some of the best and most unique in the world. In Barcelona, like many touristy cities, it’s not always easy to tell the authentic restaurants from the tourist traps, but a good rule of thumb is to remember that tapas, a world-renowned Spanish style of food, is not as popular in Catalonia – places focusing on a tapas menu are not likely to be authentic Catalan eateries. The best food is outside the city in the Catalan countryside, where traditional meals are ubiquitous.

Tips for Travelers

  • When visiting Barcelona, it is important to remember that Catalans (the people of Catalonia, where Barcelona is located) consider themselves to be a distinct cultural and political group from the Spanish people. They do not speak Spanish, and some of them believe that Catalonia should be a separate country.
  • Remember that Barcelona keeps very different hours from most places: the majority of restaurants and many other businesses will be closed from 4pm to 8pm for migdiada (siesta), and a typical night in Barcelona does not end until 2 or 4 in the morning.
  • Because of its location, many European carriers use Barcelona as their hub, so there are direct flights to Barcelona from all over the continent, including on bargain airlines. If you are planning to travel elsewhere in Europe, it’s a good idea to start in Barcelona.
